    The Padres only win at Petco Park in 2013 was on opening day, April 9th. They did have the lead briefly on Tuesday night but eventually fell to the Brewers 6-3.

    Trailing 1-0 in the second inning the Friars pushed two runs across to take the lead. Carlos Quentin, back from an 8-game suspension, and Yonder Alonzo provided the base knocks. Quentin went 1-for-3 in his return to the line-up.

    That lead didn't last long. In the top of the next inning Yuniesky Betancourt drove in two as the Brewers retook the lead.

    Padres starter Clayton Richard (0-2) took the loss. The lefty, who missed his last start because of the flu, gave up six runs and six hits in less than two innings of work.

    The Padres have now lost five straight games. They'll try and avoid the series sweep Wednesday night at Petco.
