I stayed up all night for this?

This game looked like it'd be a fun one for the first few innings. Braden Looper allowed a first inning run to the Padres, but the Brewers responded with seven runs in the top half of the second, their highest-scoring inning of the season. Looper, however, couldn't hold the lead, and gave up his 25th and 26th home runs of the season (setting a new career high), allowing the Padres to close the gap to 7-6. Tim Dillard followed Looper to the mound and poured gasoline on the fire, allowing three runs in the sixth while retiring just one batter.

The second inning was a nice offensive explosion for the Brewers, but it could have been much better. With the bases loaded and no one out, both J.J. Hardy and Jason Kendall struck out, and the entire inning would have been negated if not for Looper's two run single that sparked a rally. In an inning where the Brewers sent 13 batters to the plate, Hardy made two outs, both with the bases loaded.

Prince Fielder reached base his first four trips to the plate and went 3-for-4 with a double and a walk for the Brewers, scoring a run and driving in two more. Amazingly, in a game where the Brewers scored seven runs, Corey Hart was the only other Brewer with multiple hits.
