*Brewers-Padres Preview* ========================
By NOEY KUPCHAN STATS Writer
Milwaukee (11-8) at San Diego (5-15), 10:10 p.m. EDT
The Milwaukee Brewers continue to roll and aren't showing any signs of slowing down.
The slumping San Diego Padres are surely glad to see them leaving town.
Seeking a 10th consecutive win, the Brewers try to sweep the Padres for the first time in 10 seasons Wednesday night.
After winning 7-1 in Monday's series opener, Milwaukee (11-8) jumped all over San Diego starter Clayton Richard, tagging him for six runs over the first two innings of Tuesday's 6-3 victory.
"The Brewers had good at-bats against Clayton," Padres manager Bud Black said. "They had a lot of opposite field hits and they were taking what he was giving them."
Jean Segura had a career high-tying three hits while Jonathan Lucroy and Yuniesky Betancourt both drove in a pair of runs. Ryan Braun, who had homered four times over the previous five days, went 0 for 4 but plated his 14th RBI during the winning streak.
The Brewers, who haven't won 10 in a row since Aug. 19-28, 2003, haven't swept the Padres since taking three straight matchups earlier that same year - May 19-21. Their last sweep in San Diego came May 31-June 2, 2002.
The Padres (5-15), meanwhile, find themselves on the verge of dropping eight straight home games for the first time since a nine-game slide June 21-July 7, 2008.
San Diego has also been handed five consecutive losses overall by a 23-6 margin. The Padres are batting .201 over that stretch, including a 4-for-26 effort with runners in scoring position.
Yonder Alonso has just two hits in his last 21 at-bats. Chase Headley has also struggled, going 4 for 21 over six games since debuting last Wednesday.
The Padres will try to get back on track against Marco Estrada (2-0, 4.50 ERA), who allowed three runs and seven hits over six innings Friday in a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs.
"It felt like my mechanics were just a little off," he told MLB's official website. "By the fifth or the sixth, they were back and I felt much better. It was a grind. Mentally, physically, it was a grind."
While he's yet to lose this season, Estrada continues to be plagued by the long ball. The right-hander, who's been taken deep six times over four outings spanning 24 innings, has given up 1.4 homers per nine innings over 27 starts since the beginning of last year.
Estrada is 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA over three relief appearances versus San Diego.
The Padres counter with Edinson Volquez (0-3, 8.84), who had dropped his first three starts before coming around in Friday's 3-2 walkoff loss at San Francisco. The right-hander allowed two runs and eight hits over six innings.
"I think I've got a better tempo now, a better rhythm between pitches," he said. "I'm trying to keep the ball down and throw more strikes."
Volquez is 0-2 with a 5.84 ERA over his last four matchups against the Brewers. Rickie Weeks has taken him deep twice, going 6 for 14 in their matchups. Braun has also fared well, going 9 for 25 with a homer. Lucroy, though, is just 1 for 10.
Volquez will need to keep a close eye on Segura, who's stolen a base in five straight games. The speedy shortstop is batting .377 on the season.
