All winning streaks eventually come to an end and for the Milwaukee Brewers their nine game run ended in San Diego last night. A 2-1 loss to the Padres kept the Brewers from accomplishing their third consecutive series sweep.
San Diego pitcher Edinson Volquez shut Milwaukee out for seven innings in what was easily his best start of the season. The veteran right-hander entered the game winless and with an 8.84 ERA. He earned the win Wednesday night.
The Brewers' first real scoring chance came in the ninth when Yuniesky Betancourt knocked in Carlos Gomez with two outs for their first run. That set the stage for Carlos Maldonado, whose chopper ended the streak.
The team will travel to Los Angeles for a three game series starting tomorrow night.
