Lohse, Gomez lead Brewers past Padres, 3-1

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Kyle Lohse pitched seven strong innings and Carlos Gomez had four hits and drove in two runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night.

It was the Brewers' first win since left fielder Ryan Braun was suspended Monday for the remainder of the 2013 season for violations of Major League Baseball's drug policy.

Lohse (7-7) gave up five hits and struck out six as he continued his recent strong pitching performance. He is 6-1 over his last 11 starts with a 2.51 ERA. John Axford pitched a scoreless eighth inning and Jim Henderson pitched the ninth inning to record his 11th save in 14 opportunities.

Sean O'Sullivan (0-2), making just his second start and third appearance of the season for the Padres, pitched 6 1-3 innings, giving up three runs on seven hits.
