SAN DIEGO, CA (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers extended their road winning streak to five games after crushing the Padres in San Diego 10-1 Monday night. The Crew scored double-digit runs for the first time since July 13th as they churned out 16 hits, giving them 42 in their last three games. Milwaukee scored in every inning but the second, fourth, and eighth. Ryan Braun was hurt in the first when he had knee-to-knee contact in a collision at first base with San Diego's Jake Goebbert. Both stayed in the game, and Braun had three hits, including a solo homer before leaving in the seventh. Aramis Ramirez fell a triple short of the cycle, going 3 for 5.
