Norris, Upton Jr. homer in 12th, Padres beat Brewers 8-7
MILWAUKEE (AP) Derek Norris and Melvin Upton Jr. hit back-to-back solo homers in the top of the 12th inning to lift the San Diego Padres to an 8-7 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night.
Norris and Upton went deep against Brewers reliever Chris Capuano (1-1), with Upton's shot ricocheting off the black backdrop beyond center for a two-run lead.
Carlos Villanueva, the eighth pitcher used by the Padres, picked up his first save despite allowing Jonathan Lucroy's first-pitch homer to draw Milwaukee within a run with one out. He retired the next two, ending a game that lasted more than five hours.
Leonel Campos (1-0) tossed two scoreless innings of relief for his first major league win.
The Padres hung on despite committing four errors, including two that came in a two-run eighth inning that allowed the Brewers to tie it at 6.
