SAN DIEGO, CA (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers winning streak ended mired in controversy Wednesday night in San Diego, casting a shadow over an old-fashioned pitchers duel. Training 2-0 entering the ninth inning, the Brewers got a run off Padres closer Huston Street in the ninth following back-to-back two-out doubles from Carlos Gomez and Yuniesky Betancourt. However, the game ended when Martin Maldonado chopped a ball in front of the plate and made contadt with the ball coming out of the batter's box. Maldonado was called out for interference. Replays showed the call was erroneous, as Maldonado was not out of the batter's box. Nevertheless, the Padres emerged with a 2-1 victory. San Diego’s Edinson Volquez, given the lead on Carlos Quentin's solo homer, surrendered just five hits, did not walk a batter and induced 13 ground ball outs. Marco Estrada (2-1) was saddled with the loss despite a solid effort. He tossed 6 1/3 innings and allowed two runs - one earned - on five hits and two walks. The Brewers are idle Thursday before beginning a three-game weekend series in Los Angeles on Friday night.
