By JOE TOTORAITIS
MILWAUKEE — Cory Spangenberg and Chase d’Arnaud each hit solo home runs in the 11th inning, lifting the San Diego Padres over the Milwaukee Brewers 7-5 on Saturday in yet another slugfest.
The teams have combined for 15 home runs in the first two games of their series. The Padres had five Saturday, including two by Yangervis Solarte and one by Wil Myers, while Milwaukee got a homer each from Orlando Arcia, Eric Thames and Keon Broxton. On Friday night, Thames’ game-ending shot in the 10th was the seventh home run of the game.
Spangenberg hit the first pitch from reliever Oliver Drake (2-2) leading off the 11th, and two outs later, d’Arnaud followed with his first homer of the season.
Broxton tied it at 5 with a two-run homer off Brandon Maurer in the 10th after Solarte hit a two-run homer in the top of the inning. Solarte also had a solo homer in the second.
The clubs combined for 30 strikeouts, including 19 by the Brewers. Padres starter Dinelson Lamet accounted for a career-high 12 of those punchouts while allowing three runs in six innings.
