San Diego Padres' Ryan Ludwick, center, receives a high-five from Cameron Maybin (24) after hitting a two-run home run in the eighth inning of a baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers, Wednesday, May 11, 2011, in Milwaukee.

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Cameron Maybin drove in the go-ahead runs and Ryan Ludwick homered in an eight-run eighth inning after the San Diego Padres had already squandered one big lead in a 13-6 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday.

The Padres racked up a season-high 23 hits after coming in hitting a majors-worst .219.

Chris Denorfia led off the game with a homer and San Diego built an early 5-0 lead, but Milwaukee rallied with Prince Fielder's 200th career homer and Yuniesky Betancourt's solo shot to go ahead 6-5 until the eighth.

Jason Bartlett tied it with a single and Maybin doubled down the line with the bases loaded. Ludwick followed with a two-run shot that made it 11-6, and the Padres kept rolling from there.

It was a meltdown for the Brewers bullpen after starter Randy Wolf failed to get out of the fourth and Sergio Mitre provided 2 2-3 scoreless innings that allowed the Brewers to rally from the early hole.

In the eighth, Mitch Stetter allowed a single to Brad Hawpe before departing for Kameron Loe.

Loe (2-4) was pitching his third straight day and manager Ron Roenicke had said he was unavailable before the game. The lanky right-hander allowed consecutive singles to Denorfia and Bartlett that tied it at 6. After a sacrifice bunt, Chase Headley was intentionally walked and Maybin delivered with his double down the left-field line.

Ryan Braun's throw from the outfield hit Headley coming into third base, and Headley easily scored on the error to make it 9-6.

Ludwick snapped an 0 for 21 skid earlier in the game before homering to right field to make it 11-6. The Padres tacked on two more runs on singles by Hawpe and Bartlett as San Diego sent 13 batters to the plate.

Chad Qualls (2-2) pitched 1 1-3 innings of relief, including getting out of a bases-loaded jam trailing 6-5 in the sixth to earn the win.

Padres manager Bud Black said before the game that the final game of each series on the road are "happy flight" days, and the Padres can certainly enjoy their earned day off in Colorado on Thursday before continuing this eight-game trip.

Milwaukee was looking for its first three-game sweep this season and had a spirited rally before the ugly eighth.

Trailing 5-0, Milwaukee scored twice in the fourth. With two outs in the fifth, Braun hit a run-scoring double before Fielder's two-run homered to tie it. Betancourt's solo shot in the sixth put Milwaukee ahead 6-5 and chased Padres starter Tim Stauffer two batter later.

Milwaukee loaded the bases, but Qualls (2-2) forced Braun to pop out to end the threat and the Padres stormed back from there.

NOTES: The Padres' 23 hits was one shy of tying the club record last matched at Atlanta on Aug. 12, 2003. ... Tests on the arm of Brewers RHP Brandon Kintzler (right triceps irritation) showed no structural issues. The Brewers have an off day on Thursday, but will have to make a roster move if he's not ready to return by Friday. ... Brewers LHP Zach Braddock (sleep disorder) will begin a rehab assignment at Class A Wisconsin on Thursday.
