The Brewers and San Diego wrap up their series Wednesday night at Miller Park.  The game starts at 7:10 p.m.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Chase Headley homered in the top of the 12th inning and San Diego relievers tossed six shutout innings in the Padres' 2-1 win Tuesday night over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Huston Street retired the side in order in the bottom of the 12th for his seventh save after Donn Roach (1-0) allowed just one hit over two scoreless innings.

Headley's homer to center off a 1-0 fastball from Alfredo Figaro (0-1) was one of the few mistakes from the mound among teams with two of the best staff ERAs in baseball. Padres starter Ian Kennedy labored through six innings while Brewers counterpart Yovani Gallardo went seven strong innings before the bullpens took over.

The Padres' bullpen allowed three hits and struck out eight to snap Milwaukee's four-game winning streak.
