MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jesus Guzman homered and had three RBI lifting the Padres to a 5-3 win over Milwaukee on Monday, hours after the Brewers learned that Ryan Braun would be suspended for the rest of the season.
The 2011 National League MVP was suspended Monday afternoon for the final 65 games without pay for being tied to a Florida clinic accused of distributing performance enhancing drugs.
Guzman capped a four-run sixth inning off Tom Gorzelanny with a two-out double that snapped a tie, scoring Chase Headley and Carlos Quentin to give the Padres a 5-3 lead. It was only their 17th win in 50 road games.
San Diego starter Andrew Cashner pitched six solid innings and keyed the sixth-inning rally with a leadoff bunt single.
Huston Street pitched the ninth for his 17th save in 18 chances.
