For the third time in the last four games, the San Diego Padres pitching staff blanked the Milwaukee Brewers, pulling out a 8-0 win in San Diego on Sunday. Jon Garland and two Padre relievers combined on a 3-hitter.
It was the first time the Padres had three shutouts in a series of any length in their 42-year history.
Scott Hairston and Kyle Blanks hit back to back homers in the fifth inning for the Padres, who continue to lead the NL West. The Padres out-scored the Brewers 21-2 in the series.
Randy Wolf took the loss for the Brewers. He worked 5 innings, allowed 4-runs on 6-hits with 6 walks and 5 strikeouts.
The Brewers are off today. They’ll open a series tomorrow night (Tuesday) against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
