MILWAUKEE -- Will Venable certainly makes the most out of playing at Miller Park. Discount Titans Jerseys . Venable doubled twice Thursday, raising his career average at Milwaukees home ballpark to .394. The San Diego centre fielder also made a key catch in preserving the Padres 10-8 win over the Brewers. After the Brewers scored five times in the seventh inning, Norichika Aoki came up with two outs and runners on second and third. Right before the play, Padres coach Dave Roberts shifted Venable. Aoki had homered earlier. "I knew it was going to be close," Venable said. "Dave had just moved me about four more steps over, so if he hadnt done that, it would not have been close. Two more inches and I dont think I have a play." Carlos Quentin and Jesus Guzman homered for the Padres, who collected 16 hits. Edinson Volquez (8-8) worked into the sixth inning. Huston Street, the Padres seventh pitcher, closed for his 18th save in 19 tries. Volquez ran his career record to 22-8 against teams from NL Central. "I was in Cincinnati for four years, I pretty much know those guys," Volquez said. "I was here in the same division. It is nothing new." Volquez gave up six hits and three runs in 5 1-3 innings, while walking three and striking out five. "Edinson did a nice job early in the game," San Diego manager Bud Black said. "I thought he was throwing the ball well. He was really utilizing the curveball and changeup. He was making his pitches." Volquez knows he and his team might not have picked up the win if it wasnt for Venables defensive gem. "It was an unbelievable catch. He saved the game right there," Volquez said. "If the ball bounces, two guys score and probably tie the game. That was big time." Yovani Gallardo (8-9) was tagged for six runs on eight hits and three walks in 3 2-3 innings. In his previous outing, he pitched 6 1-3 shutout innings against Miami. The brief outing marked the second time in his last five starts that Gallardo lasted fewer than four innings. "Its definitely frustrating, especially coming after the start I had against the Marlins," Gallardo said. Quentin hit a sacrifice fly in the first, then hit a two-run homer in the third. Yonder Alonso doubled and scored in the third and added a two-run double in the fourth for a 6-0 lead. Yuniesky Betancourt homered in the Milwaukee fourth and Carlos Gomez connected in the sixth. The Padres got four runs in the seventh for a 10-3 lead, capped by Guzmans two-run pinch-hit homer. Milwaukee rallied with five runs in the bottom half of the inning. Aoki homered and Caleb Gindl hit a two-run double.
