Rookie Taylor Jungmann strikes out career-high eight as Brewers beat Padres 8-5

MILWAUKEE — Rookie Taylor Jungmann had another strong outing, striking out a career-high eight and allowing six hits without a walk over seven innings in the Milwaukee Brewers' 8-5 win over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night, August 5th.

Jonathan Lucroy, Shane Peterson and Jean Segura each drove in two runs to help Milwaukee record back-to-back wins for the first time in 15 games.

Jungmann (6-3) has allowed two earned runs or fewer in eight straight starts and in all but one this season.

After San Diego scored three runs in the ninth off Corey Knebel, Francisco Rodriguez recorded the final out for his 25th save in as many chances.

Padres starter Ian Kennedy (6-10) gave up four earned runs on seven hits in seven innings. He struck out seven without a walk, but San Diego still lost consecutive games for the first time since July 23.
