After winning their previous series against the Chicago Cubs, the San Diego Padres kept up the winning with a 3-0 road victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Upton finished the game 3-4 and a triple shy of the cycle. He also knocked in 2 of the team’s 3 runs, and scored on a sac fly after hitting a ground-rule double.
James Shields took care of just about everything else, throwing 7 scoreless innings before handing it over to Brandon Maurer and Ryan Buchter, who combined for 2 more scoreless innings. In the last two days, the Padres bullpen has accounted for 9 scoreless innings across three games.
In the second inning, catcher Derek Norris was hit in the hand while batting and was removed from the game. This, just a day after the Padres claimed catcher Hector Sanchez off of waivers from the Chicago White Sox.
The Padres moved to 16-20 with today’s win and will play the Brewers again tomorrow at 5:10pm PT.
