Brewers Held to Three Hits in Shutout Loss

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The San Diego Padres shut out the Milwaukee Brewers for the third time in four games on Sunday, winning 8-0 on a combined three-hitter by Jon Garland and two relievers.

It was the first time the Padres had three shutouts in a series of any length in their 42-year history.

Scott Hairston and Kyle Blanks hit consecutive homers in the fifth for the NL West leaders, who outscored the Brewers 21-2 in taking three of four. San Diego won the first two games 9-0 and 3-0 before losing 2-1 on Saturday night. The Padres lead the majors with six shutouts. They had nine last season.

Garland (3-2) won his third straight start by holding the Brewers to three singles in seven innings, with five walks and three strikeouts.
