Braun, Betancourt homer, lead Brewers over Padres

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer and Yuniesky Betancourt had a three-run shot, both drives off Jason Marquis in the first inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the San Diego Padres 7-1 Monday night for their eighth straight victory.

Kyle Lohse (1-1) went five innings, allowing one run and five hits, but left in the sixth after dislocating his left pinkie after attempting a sacrifice bunt. The right-hander struck out four and walked one.

Marquis (1-2) was rocked for seven runs in four-plus innings as the Padres dropped their fourth in a row overall and sixth straight at home.
