Padres squander lead, beat Brewers 13-6
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Cameron Maybin drove in the go-ahead runs and Ryan Ludwick homered in an eight-run eighth inning after the San Diego Padres had already squandered one big lead in a 13-6 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday.
The Padres racked up a season-high 23 hits after coming in hitting a majors-worst .219.
Chris Denorfia led off the game with a homer and San Diego built an early 5-0 lead, but Milwaukee rallied with Prince Fielder’s 200th career homer and Yuniesky Betancourt’s solo shot to go ahead 6-5 until the eighth.
Jason Bartlett tied it with a single and Maybin doubled down the line with the bases loaded. Ludwick followed with a two-run shot that made it 11-6, and the Padres kept rolling from there.
