Brewers streak ends at 9 with controversial finish

SAN DIEGO, CA (TSN-WSAU) - Edinson Volquez turned in his best performance of the season with seven shutout innings and the San Diego Padres silenced the streaking Milwaukee Brewers with a 2-1 victory Wednesday at Petco Park.

Milwaukee got a run off Padres closer Huston Street in the ninth following back-to-back two-out doubles from Carlos Gomez and Yuniesky Betancourt, but the Brewers' nine-game run came to an abrupt end when Martin Maldonado ran into his own chopper in front of the plate and was called out for batter's interference.

Shelled in his last three outings, Volquez (1-3) was efficient and in control in his fifth start of the year to help the Padres salvage the three-game set and end a five-game skid.

Volquez, given the lead on Carlos Quentin's solo homer, surrendered just five hits, did not walk a batter and induced 13 ground ball outs. Street recorded his third save of the season.

Marco Estrada (2-1) was saddled with the loss despite a solid effort. He tossed 6 1/3 innings and allowed two runs -- one earned -- on five hits and two walks.

Manager Ron Roenicke argued that Maldonado still had a foot in the batters box when he was called out to end the game, but the home plate umpire stayed with his call. 

The Brewers are off for a travelling day on Thursday, and play the Dodgers on Friday night.
