The Padres and Brewers went back-and-forth for most of Thursday afternoon, but it was Milwaukee’s Jackie Bradley Jr.’s walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the 10th that ended up being the difference in a 6-5 loss at American Family Field.
Ryan Weathers had himself another notable performance as he finished with five strikeouts in four innings of work with two walks and a lone hit given up. He’s currently running with a very impressive 1.31 ERA. Nabil Crismatt K’d a pair and every other bullpen participant notched at least one strikeout.
Fernando Tatis Jr. put the Padres on the board in the sixth with an RBI double into left field. Eric Hosmer then went yard for a two-run homer which gave the Friars the 3-2 lead that unfortunately lasted a little over an inning. Shortstop Willy Adames went yard in the seventh for a three-run shot which gave the Brewers back the lead at 5-3.
Tatis drove in another run in the eighth and Manny Machado made his return as a pinch-hitter to knock a double into right center, scoring Tatis. Hosmer almost scored the would-be game-winner but was thrown out at home.
The Padres are now in Houston to begin a three-game series with the Astros. Game one begins this evening at 5:10 p.m.
