MILWAUKEE (AP) — Rookie Martin Maldonado hit a grand slam and the Milwaukee Brewers used 10 newcomers in beating the San Diego Padres 4-3 on Tuesday night, October 2nd.

Maldonado connected against Anthony Bass (2-8) in the fourth inning for his first career slam and eighth home run of the year. The backup catcher was in a 1-for-16 slump since Sept. 10 when he delivered.

Jim Henderson (1-2) pitched a perfect seventh inning. John Axford worked the ninth for his 35th save in 44 chances, getting Logan Forsythe to ground out with a runner on the third to end it.

The Brewers started right-hander Tyler Thornburg and fellow rookies Norichika Aoki, Logan Schafer, Maldonado, Taylor Green, Jean Segura, Jeff Bianchi and Maldonado. Rookie Eric Farris pinch-hit and rookies Brandon Kintzler and Henderson pitched in relief.
