Padres bats go quiet, lose 1-0 to Brewers

Christian Friedrich

After winning three games in a row for the first time this season, the Padres were shutout for the ninth time in a 1-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.

Christian Friedrich, recently recalled from Triple-A El Paso, started for the Padres and went six innings, allowing one run on four hits and six walks (one intentional). He struck out four.

It was a solid performance for Friedrich after struggling posting a 4.66 ERA in two starts at Triple-A.

The Padres came in to the game on the right side of a 23-inning opponent scoreless streak. That was quickly erased in the bottom of the first inning when Milwaukee’s Chris Carter hit a sac-fly that scored Domingo Santana.

It was all the Brewers would need.

Starter Junior Guerra allowed two hits, walked two, and struck out four in six scoreless innings.

The Padres finished with just three hits and went 0-3 with runners in scoring position.

With Andrew Cashner placed on the 15-day DL with a hamstring injury, San Diego will use a combination of relief pitchers for Saturday’s game. Luis Perdomo will make his first major league start.

Wily Peralta will make his eighth start of the season for Milwaukee.
