At least it didn't end in a shutout and the game was close, but what a way to end.

W: Edinson Volquez (1-3)
L: Marco Estrada (2-1)
S: Huston Street (3)

HR: Carlos Quentin (1)

Win expectancy graph / box score

The Brewers' nine-game winning streak came to an end tonight in heartbreaking fashion. The Brewers offense just couldn't get anything happening against Edinson Volquez. Volquez allowed only 5 Brewers hits, all singles. Meanwhile, Marco Estrada and the Brewers bullpen were doing their best but the runs given up by Estrada were all it took for the Brewers to come to defeat.

The real turning point in this game came due to some poor Milwaukee fielding in the 5th inning. Rickie Weeks made a poor catch that if made could have possibly thrown out Nick Hundley at first. Hundley advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Volquez. He was heading for third and Weeks overthrew a moving Jean Segura, causing Hundley to score the second Padres run.

The Brewers attempted a 9th inning rally against Huston Street and it almost succeeded. With two outs, Carlos Gomez reached second on a ball hit to shallow right field that 3 Padres converged upon but could not secure. Yuniesky Betancourt followed this with a ball hit to left that Alexi Amarista attempted to dive for but couldn't reach, scoring Gomez and getting Betancourt to 2nd base. Unfortunately the final out of the game came on a disputed fair ball call. Martin Maldonado hit a ball into the other batter's box and was called out because he supposedly ran into a ball in play. It was a tough call; on the first replay from one angle it was unclear if he was out of the box or not. A fan took a screencap showing something else.

The Brewers are off tomorrow and will attempt to start a new winning streak on Friday night against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.
