Eric Sogard had his second four-hit game in three days and drove in three runs, leading the Milwaukee Brewers over the San Diego Padres 4-2.

Sogard is 10 for 21 with two homers since he was called up from Triple-A last Friday. He went 9 for 15 in the four-game series, including an RBI single in the fourth and a two-run single in the seventh. Zach Davies gave up two runs over six frames in winning his third straight start as the Crew opens up a one game lead over Saint Louis. After more than ten years in the minor leagues, right hander Paolo Espino will make his Major League debut today when the Brewers play the Cubs in Chicago. The 30-year-old Espino was called up Thursday to take the spot of Wily Perata, who was demoted to the bullpen this week. Espino is 76-63 in almost 300 appearances in his minor league career, pitching at Triple "A" since 2010 for the Cleveland, Washington, and Milwaukee organizations. He's 4-0 at Colorado Springs this year with a two-point-five-four E-R-A. The Brewers sent left handed reliever Brent Suter back down to Triple "A" to create a roster space for Espino. Right hander Eddie Butler will start for the Cubs in a 1:20 start this (Friday) afternoon from Wrigley Field. Our broadcast starts at 12:45 on 940 WFAW.
