Padres End Losing Streak

Edinson Volquez delivered for the Padres in a big way against Milwaukee.

Starting pitcher Edinson Volquez proved why he is the staff's ace. Volquez (1-3) struck out three and gave up only five singles in his best performance of the season. The major league walk leader allowed no base on balls for only the fourth time in his career.

Carlos Quentin provided the offensive spark this team so desperately needed. In just his second game back from an eight game suspension, Quentin crushed a Marco Estrada pitch into the top deck of the Western Metal Supply Building to give the Padres a 1-0 lead in the fourth.

Things got a bit dicey in the ninth. The Brewers had the go-ahead run at the plate but Huston Street managed to record his third save when the home plate umpire called out Martin Maldonado for running into his own batted ball in fair territory for the game's final out.

The 2-1 win was just the second win for the Padres at home this season. It also snapped the Brewers  nine game winning streak.
