Padres crush Brewers 12-3
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Edwin Jackson pitched seven scoreless innings and had an RBI double, and Jabari Blash hit his first major league home run to help the San Diego Padres rout the Milwaukee Brewers 12-3 on Wednesday.
Jackson (2-2) retired the first 11 batters he faced, and the Brewers didn't put a runner in scoring position until Kirk Nieuwenhuis doubled in the fifth.
Jackson signed a minor-league contract with the Padres in June after starting the season in Miami's bullpen. He gave up three runs — two on Ryan Braun's homer — on eight hits and struck out five over eight innings.
The Padres made it 8-0 on Yangervis Solarte's two-run, two-out homer in the sixth. Blash homered in the two-run seventh.
Junior Guerra (7-3) had a rare rough second-half outing, allowing four runs in the first two innings in a four-inning stint. Guerra had won four of his last five starts.
