Davis, Garza lead Brewers past Padres, 10-1


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Khris Davis hit two three-run homers, Matt Garza limited San Diego to two hits in seven innings, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Padres 10-1 on Thursday.

Davis homered for the first time since July 18, connecting off Padres starter Odrisamer Despaigne (5-8) in the third -- a shot into the San Diego bullpen that made it 4-0.

Davis also homered off Kevin Quackenbush in the eighth.

Garza (6-12) walked two and struck out five in his first victory in three starts. He avoided joining teammate Kyle Lohse as the only 13-game losers in the majors.

Garza gave up a single to Derek Norris in the second and then nothing more until Melvin Upton Jr. hit a home run in the fifth. Garza retired the next seven batters and left with a 7-1 lead.
