    Forum: Will the Padres fare in the playoffs?

  • The teams combined for 33 hits against 12 pitchers in a game that took 2 hours, 3 minutes to complete the first four innings. Both teams had identical scorelines -- 8 runs, 10 hits and 3 errors going into the fifth.

    In the 10th, Steve Finley walked leading off and took third on a single by Greg Vaughn before Leyritz doubled to right-center off Bob Wickman (6-7). The Padres scored a run to tie it 10-10 in the ninth when Andy Sheets grounded into a double play.

    Trevor Hoffman (4-1) pitched two innings for the victory.

    Vaughn set a career-high with his 42nd homer, a 455-foot shot in the third inning that was the longest homer at County Stadium this season. He hit 41 homers in 1996.

    Bob Hamelin hit his team-record fourth pinch-hit homer this season and Dave Nilsson hit a three-run homer and drove in five runs for the Brewers.

    Ken Caminiti drove in three runs for the Padres. His 23rd homer gave San Diego a 9-8 lead in the eighth.

    The Padres took an 8-5 lead in the fourth on a two-run double by Caminiti and an RBI double by Vaughn off Brewers starter Brad Woodall, who allowed seven runs and nine hits in 3 1-3 innings.

    Milwaukee tied it with three runs in the bottom of the inning on run-scoring singles by Marquis Grissom, Burnitz and Nilsson.

    Padres starter Andy Ashby, who was looking to become the NL's first 17-game winner, had his shortest outing of the season. He allowed eight runs and 10 hits in 3 2-3 innings.

    Notes

  • Vaughn's two extra-base hits raised his NL-leading total to 73.
  • Before the game, San Diego acquired outfielder Shea Morenz and right-hander Ray Ricke from the New York Yankees in exchange for right-handers Jim Bruske and Brad Kaufman . Both Morenz and Ricken will report to Las Vegas, the club's Triple-A affiliate.
  • Hamelin's homer was the sixth pinch-hitter homer by the Brewers this season, setting a franchise record. Matt Mieske had three pinch-hit homers in 1996 for the Brewers.
