MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Kyle Lohse won his sixth decision in his last seven, as the Milwaukee Brewers topped San Diego 3-1 Wednesday night at Miller Park. Lohse went seven innings, giving up a run on five hits with no walks and six strikeouts. He evened his record at 7-7. Jim Henderson stranded a runner in the ninth and earned his 11th save. Sean O’Sullivan took the loss, giving up all three Milwaukee runs – two earned – on seven hits with three walks. He went six-and-a-third innings, and fell to 0-2. Carlos Gomez went 4 for 4 with a pair of doubles, as he broke a 3 for 42 slump. He belted a two-run double in the third to put Milwaukee in front for good. The Brewers scored their final run on a freak play in the seventh. Padres’ reliever Joe Thayer threw to third to try and pick off Norichika Aoki – and third baseman Chase Headley fired the ball to second to catch Gomez, who was trying to steal. The ball hit second base umpire Bob Davidson’s back and went into left field – and that allowed Aoki to score. Nick Hundley belted a solo homer for San Diego’s only run. The Brewers are now a Major League-best 36-0 when leading after eight innings, and they’ve won four-of-six since the All-Star break. They’ll go for a split of their four-game set with San Diego this afternoon. Right-hander Yovani Gallardo will face Padres’ right-hander Edinson Volquez. Pregame on WHBL gets underway at 12:35.
