"That was my very first walk-off home run", said Renfroe, who was called up late last season and hit four home runs in 11 games. Renfroe lined a full-count fastball from Brewers reliever Oliver Drake (2-1) into the left field seats. The Brewers allowed six runs in Monday's loss and four or more runs in their last seven games.

Perdomo's second-inning triple opened up a 3-0 lead, his sixth-inning double sparked a rally for an insurance run and his effort on the mound mostly quieted a Milwaukee team that arrived in San Diego just one game off the Cardinals' pace in the NL Central. "But the guys fought it today and I thought the energy in the dugout even going into the last inning was great".

Jose Torres made a mistake in the top of the 10th frame when Eric Sogard sent his offering over the wall in right field.

Sogard, a former Padres farmhand, hit a high, arcing shot to right, his second. He was called up from Triple-A on Friday and made his first big league appearance since October 2, 2015.

OUR PREDICTION: The Brewers have won six of their last seven games overall, are 4-1 in their last five games following a win, and are 5-0 in their last five games versus a right-handed starter. "I don't know if I've seen anything like that", Brewers manager Craig Counsell told reporters. I've been in the cage doing stuff and just really working on the whole system of watching balls, being aggressive and flirting on the fine line. It had a decent chance of getting out or being a double, over his head or being caught.

Renfroe also struck out twice but has more walks (7) than strikeouts (5) over his last five games.

"He was swinging at a ton of pitches outside the strike zone, which gives him limited opportunity to show that power", Green said. The 29-year-old had a string of five straight starts without surrendering a home run come to an end when he served up a solo blast to Jackie Bradley Jr.in a no decision against Boston on Wednesday.

The Brewers tied the score at 4-4 in the top of the eighth.

Two innings earlier, Perdomo's run-scoring triple - which flew over the outstretched arms of center fielder Keon Broxton as he ran to his right - followed Renfroe's two-out double. Three straight singles by Hernan Perez, Jesus Aguilar and Domingo Santana cut the Padres' lead to one with the tying run at second and no one out.

Anderson gave up four runs on six hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings.

Padres starting pitcher Luis Perdomo helped his own cause by smacking his first career triple in the 2nd inning to make it 3-0. "We put pressure on them for sure".

Perdomo's two-out triple to center in the second gave the Padres a 3-0 lead. It brought in Renfroe, who hit a two-run double with one out.

Perdomo's tightest spot on the mound arrived in the fourth after hitting the first batter and allowing two singles to load the bases. Aguilar tripled in the10th, leaving him a double short of the cycle.
