Recap: San Diego vs. Milwaukee

San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Rene Rivera hit a solo homer in the ninth to tie the game, then hit an RBI single in the 10th to give the San Diego Padres a 3-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday.

Rivera led off the ninth with a home run off Francisco Rodriguez, making it 2-2.

Milwaukee sent Zach Duke (4-1) to the mound in the bottom of the 10th. Seth Smith walked and Yasmani Grandal singled. Smith was thrown out at third when Cameron Maybin bunted into a fielder's choice. After pinch-hitter Rymer Liriano lined out, Rivera singled up the middle to plate the winning run.

Dale Thayer (4-3) pitched the 10th for the victory. San Diego starter Odrisamer Despaigne allowed two runs -- one earned -- on six hits while striking out a career-high nine batters over seven innings.

"Rene Rivera, what a night," said Padres manager Bud Black. "I thought Despaigne did well. I thought tonight that he was the best since his first game. It was all about the fastball tonight for him."

Yovani Gallardo got the start for the NL Central-leading Brewers and gave up just three hits and three walks over six innings.

The Brewers broke a scoreless tie in the seventh. Lyle Overbay singled to right and raced home on Elian Herrera's double to right. Herrera went to third on the throw and scored on a passed ball to make it 2-0.

San Diego got one run back in the bottom half. Jeremy Jeffress gave up back- to-back singles to Jedd Gyorko and Will Venable. Following two quick outs, pinch-hitter Jake Goebbert hit an RBI single to left-center field.

"We go into the ninth with a one-run lead and we felt good about it," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, who was ejected in the ninth. "I'm tired of seeing the catcher set up away from the plate and strikes are being called. I should have been kicked out probably in the second inning today."
