MILWAUKEE (AP) --- Chase Headley homered in the top of the 12th inning and San
Diego relievers tossed six shutout innings in the Padres' 2-1 win Tuesday night
over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Huston Street retired the side in order in the bottom of the 12th for his
seventh save after Donn Roach (1-0) allowed just one hit over two scoreless
Headley's homer to center off a 1-0 fastball from Alfredo Figaro (0-1) was one
of the few mistakes from the mound among teams with two of the best staff ERAs
in baseball. Padres starter Ian Kennedy labored through six innings while
Brewers counterpart Yovani Gallardo went seven strong innings before the
bullpens took over.
The Padres' bullpen allowed three hits and struck out eight to snap Milwaukee's
four-game winning streak.
