Jean Segura’s
three-run homer in the 2nd highlighted a 5-2 Brewers win over San Diego on Wednesday night at Miller Park.  Kyle Lohse gave up just 2 runs and five hits
in seven innings of work to notch the win. 
Just one of those runs was earned. 
He struck out 5 and didn’t walk a batter as he improves to 4-1 on the
season.  Tyson Ross takes the loss. The
win moves the Brewers to ten games over .500 at 16-6.  They have a four game lead over St. Louis in the N.L.

today off and then open up a three game set with the Cubs at Miller Park
