Things look good after one inning when homers by Jesus Aguilar and Mike Moustakas put Milwaukee up by four, but it was all San Diego after that. The visiting Padres hit three homers in an 11-5 win Tuesday night. Padres leadoff man Manuel Margot homered, tripled and singled to drive in five runs and rookie outfielder Franmil Reyes was three-for-three with a homer in the first game of a three-game series. Chase Anderson was knocked around, giving up four runs in four-plus innings. Anderson spoke about his performance.
Manager Craig Counsell had a few words on the normally lights out pitcher as well.
While Anderson Struggled, Josh Hader gave up a two run double which put San Diego up to stay. Hader suffered his first defeat of the season. Hader said simply, he didn’t have his best stuff.
Milwaukee has lost four out of its last six games to fall two-and-a-half behind the Cubs. Jhoulys Chacin, who was rocked for nine runs last time out, will try to get the Brewers back on track tonight (Wednesday) in a 7:10 P-M game.
