SAN DIEGO (AP) - Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer and Yuniesky Betancourt had a three-run shot, both drives off Jason Marquis in the first inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the San Diego Padres 7-1 Monday night for their eighth straight victory.
Kyle Lohse (1-1) went five innings, allowing one run and five hits, but left in the sixth after dislocating his left pinkie when he caught the finger on the elbow of Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko, who was covering first, after an unsuccessful sacrifice bunt. Lohse struck out four and walked one.
The right-hander thinks he'll be able to make his next scheduled start.
Marquis (1-2) was rocked for seven runs in four-plus innings as the Padres dropped their fourth in a row overall and sixth straight at home.
The homer for Braun was his sixth of the season. He also had an RBI single in the fifth and has 19 RBIs.
In his last visit to Petco Park, Braun became the first player to hit three home runs in one game at the ballpark. He also had a triple in his last at-bat here on April 30, 2012. He has five homers and 13 RBIs in 16 games at Petco.
Betancourt's home run, his third, came after Marquis had hit consecutive batters - Logan Schafer and Carlos Gomez - with two outs.
The Brewers have hit 15 home runs in eight games after hitting five homers in their first 10.
Milwaukee had scored just five runs in Lohse's first three starts before putting up a five-spot in the first inning on Monday.
The Brewers added two more runs in the fifth, one on Braun's RBI single and they scored on a wild pitch by Padres reliever Anthony Bass with the bases loaded.
The Padres, who were shutout in San Francisco Saturday and Sunday, snapped their 25-inning scoreless streak with a run in the fifth on a double by Gyorko and an RBI fielder's choice by Bass.
