The Padres scored an unearned run off Nelson (9-9) in the fourth, but the big right-hander, who threw a season-high 112 pitches, allowed nothing more. He walked one and struck out four before leaving with a 2-1 lead and two out in the seventh. Jeremy Jeffress retired pinch-hitter Brett Wallace to end the inning.

Davis, who struck out with runners in scoring position for Milwaukee in the first and fifth, knocked in a run with a two-out base hit in the third, snapping a 2-17 slump, and a sacrifice fly in the seventh.

Francisco Rodriguez pitched the ninth for his 24th save in as many chances.
