Padres top Brewers 2-1, end Milwaukee's 9-game win streak
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Edinson Volquez threw seven strong innings and Carlos Quentin hit his first home run of the season, helping the San Diego Padres snap Milwaukee's 9-game winning streak with a 2-1 victory over the Brewers on Wednesday night.
Volquez (1-3) allowed just five singles, struck out three and did not walk a batter, lowering his ERA from 8.84 to 6.39 as San Diego ended a 5-game skid. It marked only the fourth time in 127 starts that Volquez did not walk a batter.
Estrada (2-1) pitched 6 1-3 innings, allowing two runs, one earned, with two walks and three strikeouts.
Huston Street worked the ninth for his third save in as many opportunities.
