SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Padres tied a team record with seven straight singles during a five-run fifth inning — including pitcher Wade LeBlanc's career-high third hit of the night — and went on to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-0 Thursday night.

The NL West-leading Padres won their seventh straight home game and for the 11th time in 13 games overall.

San Diego's 13 hits were all singles.

LeBlanc (2-0) struck out six, walked none and held Milwaukee to eight hits in 6 1-3 innings. He lowered his ERA from 0.82 to 0.52.

After struggling early against Doug Davis (0-3), including taking four straight called third strikes, the Padres broke through with four runs on four hits in the fourth. The first four Padres batters reached base and scored.

San Diego got seven straight singles to open the fifth. Kyle Blanks drove in one run and Yorvit Torrealba had a two-run hit. After Jerry Hairston Jr. hit an RBI single, the streak ended when David Eckstein hit into a double play to bring in the inning's final run.

The Padres also had seven straight singles in the fourth inning at Cincinnati on July 24, 1995.

Every Padres regular except Adrian Gonzalez had a hit. Torrealba had three RBIs and Hairston two.

LeBlanc was stranded twice and forced once.

Davis went four-plus innings, allowing six runs, five earned, on eight hits. He struck out five and walked two.

NOTES: Padres SS Everth Cabrera had an MRI on his strained right hamstring. Manager Bud Black said putting Cabrera on the disabled list is an option. Cabrera was hurt during the last homestand. ... RHP Chris Young, on the DL with tightness in his right shoulder, threw a bullpen session and could make a rehab start Sunday for Triple-A Portland at Salt Lake City. ... LeBlanc picked off Carlos Gomez at second base for the second out of the first, his fifth pickoff this year. ... Coming in, Davis was 10-3 with a 2.91 ERA in 18 games against San Diego, including 17 starts.

    California water board eyes decision on plan to aid salmon
