Padres hold off Brewers in 12 innings

Chase Headley’s solo home run in the 12th inning gave the San Diego Padres a 2-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night at Miller Park.

Headley’s game winner came off of Alfredo Figaro, who was working on his third inning of relief.  It ended a 4-game Brewers winning streak and dropped Milwaukee’s home record to 6-5.  They’re 9-1 on the road this season.

Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo turned in a solid effort on the mound, working seven innings and allowing one run on five hits.  He walked two and struck out four.  Even though Gallardo didn’t get a decision, he improved to 5 for 5 in quality starts.  The Brewers as a team have 16 quality starts in 21 games.

The Brewers only run came off Scooter Gennett’s solo home run, his first of the year.

The two teams play the rubber match of the series at Miller Park tonight.  Kyle Lohse (3-1, 2.67) shoots for his 4th win of the season.  He’ll face San Diego’s Tyson Ross (2-2, 2.13).
