Headley's HR lifts Padres past Brewers 2-1 in 12
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 allowed just one hit over two scoreless innings.
Headley's homer to center off a 1-0 fastball from Alfredo Figaro 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.
MLB suspends 4 after Brewers-Pirates brawl
NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Baseball has suspended four players involved in last Sunday's brawl between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Milwaukee Brewers.
Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado was suspended five games while outfielder Carlos Gomez was suspended three games. Pittsburgh outfielder Travis Snider must sit two games, with Russell Martin also missing one game.
There was no immediate word on whether the players plan to appeal. Snider and Martin were in Pittsburgh's initial posted lineup before Tuesday night's game against Cincinnati.
Benches cleared after Gomez and Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole exchanged words after Gomez's triple in the third inning. Snider came onto the field and tackled Gomez, getting a minor assist from Martin in the process.
Snider was then punched in the face by Maldonado, receiving a small gash under his left eye.
