Lopez's big hit lifts Brewers to 6-1 win over SD

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Felipe Lopez hit a three-run double that highlighted a five-run seventh inning, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.

Craig Counsell and Frank Catalanotto also drove in runs in the seventh, breaking a 1-all tie against four San Diego pitchers and snapping the Padres' five-game winning streak. Milwaukee won for just the fourth time in 11 games.

Mitch Stetter (3-1) got the final two outs of the sixth and earned the win, combining with four pitchers to allow just five hits against a San Diego lineup that had at least 10 in five straight games.

Trevor Hoffman, who pitched 16 seasons for the Padres, worked the ninth inning and received a standing ovation from the few remaining fans.
