MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Brewers got only four hits Tuesday night for the second game in a row, and lost to San Diego at home 6-2. Khris Davis, who was called up last night to take Ryan Braun’s roster spot, hit his first career homer in the eighth inning after the game was long decided. The Padres broke a 1-1 tie in the fourth, when a solo homer by Will Venable put them in front for good. Brewers’ starter Donovan Hand left in the fourth, one inning after he was hit by a pitch while trying to bunt and suffered a contusion. Hand took the loss and dropped to 0-2. Brewers’ manager Ron Roenicke expects Hand to make his next start. Tyler Ross pitched six innings to get the win in his first start since April 17th. Nick Hundley hit a two-run homer and went 3-for-4, as the Padres have now won four of their last six. Ex-Brewer Mark Kotsay ended an 0 for 25 slump by going 3 for 4 with an R-B-I. Milwaukee went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position. Centerfielder Carlos Gomez returned for the Crew after missing two games. He was said to have an elbow problem, but Roenicke said for the first time that Gomez actually hurt both his thumbs – one on a head-first slide, and the other while being jammed by a pitch at the plate. Jean Segura ended a nine-game hitting streak, as the Crew lost their sixth game in their last 10. They’ll play the Padres again tonight at Miller Park. Right-hander Kyle Lohse faces Padres’ right-hander Sean O’Sullivan. Pregame on WHBL begins at 6:35.
