SAN DIEGO, CA (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers lost at San Diego Wednesday night, 3-2 in ten innings. Rene Rivera homered in the ninth to give Milwaukee its first extra-inning game in over two months. Rivera then hit a walk-off single in the tenth to win it. The Brewers dropped the final two contests in their three-game set with the Padres, and they've lost four of their last six. But they still cling to a one-and-a-half game lead over Saint Louis in the National League Central after the Cardinals lost. Milwaukee broke a scoreless tie in the seventh when Elian Herrera hit an R-B-I double, went to third on the throw, and scored on a passed ball. San Diego made it 2-1 in the same inning when pinch-hitter Jake Goebbert hit a run-scoring single. That set up Rivera's heroics. Brewers' starter Yovani Gallardo threw six scoreless innings, giving up three hits and three walks. Zach Duke took the loss, falling to 4-1. Dale Thayer got the win. He's 4-3. Padres' starter Odrisamer Despaigne struck out a career-high nine batters in seven frames. Brewers' manager Ron Roenicke was ejected in the ninth, and ripped plate umpire Mark Ripperger for calling strikes that were way off the plate. In Roenicke's words, "I should have been kicked out probably in the second inning." Crew chief Ted Barrett said he'll get a report from Major League Baseball as early as today, and if there were pitches missed, they'll figure out how to get them right. Milwaukee is off today, and will open a series at San Francisco Friday night.
