March 18, 2023 (Peoria, Ariz.) - The Padres deserved a massive St. Patrick’s Day hangover after their embarrassing loss to the Mariners last night. Today, they hosted the Brewers. Bryce Wilson started for Milwaukee against Brent Honeywell Jr.
The Brewers ran all over the Padres from the beginning. Brice Turang singled in the second to score William Contreras, Tyler Naquin singled to score two, Jesse Winkler singled to score Joey Wiemer and Luke Voit singled to score Naquin and the Brewers had a big second inning to lead 5-0 after two.
The Padres slowly crawled back in the third and fourth. Luis Campusano hit a solo homer in the third. So did Manny Machado in the fourth and Trent Grisham doubled to score Xander Bogaerts.
But the Brewers got away again. Mike Brosseau scored on a wild pitch, but in the fifth, Fernando Tatis Jr. singled to score Campusano. The Brewers led 6-4 after five.
The Padres took charge in the sixth. Manny Machado doubled to score Fernando Tatis Jr. and Jake Cronenworth smacked a two-run homer. David Dahl singled to score Ha-Seong Kim and the Padres led 8-6 after six.
Dahl doubled in the eighth to score Matthew Batten. Tim Lopes hit a sac fly to score Alfonso Rivas. Dahl scored on a wild pitch and the Padres came from behind to win 11-6.
The Padres go back to Mesa to face the Cubs tomorrow. First pitch is at 1:05 p.m. Julio Teheran starts against Justin Steele for Chicago.
