Brewers Win Again 5-1

From Sportsline.com:

Dave Bush pitched a three-hitter and Geoff Jenkins went 4-for-4 to help the Milwaukee Brewers beat the San Diego Padres 5-1 Tuesday night.

Jenkins, who suffered a mild concussion Sunday during a collision with teammate Prince Fielder, snapped an 0-for-15 slump with four singles. Rickie Weeks had three base hits to break out of a 1-for-22 skid and Corey Koskie hit a solo home run for Milwaukee.

Bush (4-5) did not allow a hit until Adrian Gonzalez singled in the fifth. Pinch-hitter Josh Bard singled in the seventh and Gonzalez hit his sixth homer of the year in the eighth for San Diego.

Bush pitched his second complete game of the year, walking two and striking out five. He also collected his first major league extra-base hit, driving an RBI double off the center-field wall in the fourth.

San Diego's Jake Peavy (4-6) struggled after his start was pushed back from Saturday due to tendinitis in his right shoulder. The right-hander pitched 3 2-3 innings, giving up five runs and seven hits. He struck out three and walked one.

Jenkins sat out Monday night's game and was key to the Brewers' offense against Peavy. He singled and scored in the first, and had an RBI single in the third inning.
