Padres Series Recap: Padres Split Series With Brewers

May 15, 2016

The San Diego Padres just finished a fairly disappointing series in Milwaukee. After beating the Chicago Cubs twice in a day, the Padres just could not win this four game series in Milwaukee.

The San Diego Padres have won yet another series, but still were unable to get that elusive sweep. We saw it in the first series in Colorado, then against the Pirates and Dodgers.
