PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Yonder Alonso hit his fifth home run in his last nine games, helping the San Diego Padres defeat a Milwaukee Brewers' split squad 6-4 Sunday.
Alonso was 2 for 4 and drove in three runs, raising his spring training total to 12 RBIs to go along with a .236 average (13 for 55).
Brewers starter Wily Peralta allowed six runs and 10 hits in 5 1-3 innings. San Diego's Eric Stults gave up four runs on seven hits in six innings with four strikeouts and no walks.
Padres closer Huston Street pitched a perfect seventh inning, his seventh straight scoreless outing.

The Minnesota Twins raised some eyebrows Sunday when they brought Fernando Rodney into the game in the fifth inning, an unconventional spot for a closer who had not pitched that early in a game in more than a dozen years.
