Five home runs helped the Milwaukee Brewers even up their three-game series with San Diego, 8-4 on Wednesday night.
Orlando Arcia, Jesus Aguilar, Eric Thames, Travis Shaw, and Christian Yelich all hit home runs in the Brewers' victory over the Padres. Jhoulys Chacin got the win over his former team as the Brewers moved a game and a half back of the Cubs in the NL Central. Chacin went six innings and allowed three runs on six hits. Joakim Soria, Jeremy Jeffress, and Corey Knebel each threw a scoreless inning apiece to preserve the victory.
Milwaukee, just 17-28 during day games, will go for the series victory Thursday afternoon at Miller Park.
