The game started out well. Will Venable hit a leadoff home run to start the game and in the second inning the Padres scored another run on an Everth Cabrera RBI groundout. The next three innings went scoreless for both sides, and Anthony Bass seemed to be pitching lights out, including striking out the side in the 5th. Things fell apart in the 6th, however. Bass gave up four runs on four hits before he was taken out and Brad Brach recorded the final out of the inning.

In the 7th, Chris Denorfia and Will Venable hit back-to-back two out singles, but nothing came of them. Later that inning, Brach gave up a 2-run homer to Ryan Braun to put the Brewers on top 6-2.

Brad Boxberger made his major league debut in the 8th and issued a walk to start off the inning, but followed it up with a strikeout and a groundout for a double play.

Padres launched a big rally attempt in the ninth. With the Brewers up by 4 runs, John Axford loaded the bases with one out, and Chase Headley hit a single to score a run. Carlos Quentin followed with a bases-loaded walk. Yonder Alonso struck out for the second out, but Jesus Guzman got another bases-loaded walk to cut the Brewers’ lead down to 1 run. The rally ended there, however, as John Baker struck out and the Brewers took the final game of the series 6-5.
