Recap


Brewers 5, Padres 3: Carlos Gomez snapped a fourth-inning tie with a two-out solo home run and Rickie Weeks and Jonathan Lucroy also went deep as host Milwaukee took the opener of the season-ending three-game series.

Norichika Aoki collected three hits and Ryan Braun added two for the Brewers (82-78), who guaranteed finishing the campaign with a winning record.

Gomez gave Milwaukee a 2-1 lead with his 19th blast and Weeks drilled a two-run shot to center field in the fifth to increase the advantage. Lucroy belted a 1-1 offering from Clayton Richard (14-14) over the wall in left-center for the Brewers' National League-leading 201st homer and a 5-2 cushion.

Shaun Marcum (7-4) allowed two runs and six hits over six innings to improve to 4-0 lifetime against San Diego. John Axford struck out three in the ninth for his 34th save in 43 opportunities.

Richard surrendered five runs and 10 hits in seven innings while hitting his first career homer and Will Venable collected three of the eight hits by the Padres, who have lost five of six.
