Guerra, bullpen shut down Padres in Brewers’ 1-0 win
MILWAUKEE — Junior Guerra pitched six innings of two-hit ball to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat the San Diego Padres 1-0 on Friday night.
Making his third career major league start, Guerra (2-0) shut down one of the National League’s lighter-hitting teams. The right-hander struck out four and walked two before three relievers finished the three-hitter.
The Brewers scored on Chris Carter’s sacrifice fly in the first, snapping a 23-inning scoreless streak by Padres pitching.
Christian Friedrich allowed four hits and walked six in six innings in his Padres debut after being called up from Triple-A El Paso.
Friedrich (0-1) lost his 11th straight decision, a streak that dates to 2012. It was his first start in the majors since July 2014.
