Brewers bounce back to defeat Padres 5-1 Thursday afternoon

The Brewers were able to score runs early and often in their 5-1 victory over the Padres on Thursday afternoon at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

Thanks to a solid start by Jordan Lyles and solid relief efforts by Freddy Peralta and Drew Pomeranz, the Milwaukee Brewers were able to take the series finale (and the series itself).

With the win, the Brewers will gain on the loser between the Cardinals and Cubs on Thursday, as those two teams are locked in a four-game series this weekend.

Lorenzo Cain left the game with a left ankle injury after providing an early home run.
