Every run scored in Friday night’s game at Miller Park came via the long ball, but it was Eric Thames’ homer in the tenth inning that clinched a 6-5 victory for the Brewers over the Padres. It was the fourth win in a row for the Brew Crew. Brewers’ starter Junior Guerra survived a rocky first inning that saw him surrender four runs, three were earned. He only gave up two hits…both homers. Guerra settled down and tossed five innings of scoreless, hitless ball to record a quality start. The Brewers’ bats tied the game at four in the fourth with a long ball from Keon Broxton providing the punch. That chased former Timber Rattler Miguel Diaz who made the start for San Diego. Milwaukee also got homers from Manny Pina and Travis Shaw in the win. The teams will play game two of the series Saturday afternoon with Chase Anderson getting the ball for the Brewers.
