MILWAUKEE -- Jesus Guzman and Carlos Quentin each hit two-run doubles in the sixth inning as the San Diego Padres beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-3 Monday night at Miller Park.

Padres starting pitcher Andrew Cashner opened the inning with a bunt single that bounced off the glove of Brewers starter Tom Gorzelanny. Everth Cabrera followed with a bunt hit down the third base line. Both runners advanced on Chris Denorfia's groundout, and Chase Headley walked to load the bases before Quentin tied the game with a double off the wall in left field.

Gorzelanny (1-4) struck out Jedd Gyorko, but Guzman sent Gorzelanny's first offering into the left field corner to drive in Headley and Quentin, giving San Diego a two-run lead.

That marked the end of the line for Gorzelanny, who was charged with a season-high five runs on five hits and three walks with six strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings.

Cashner (6-5) won for the first time since June 11. He held Milwaukee to three runs on three hits and three walks with six strikeouts in six innings.

Dale Thayer and Luke Gregerson combined to keep the Brewers off the board in the seventh and eighth innings, and Huston Street worked a perfect ninth for his 17th save of the season.

The Brewers took the field Monday just hours after learning that they would be without left fielder Ryan Braun for the remainder of the season due to his acceptance of an Major League Baseball suspension for his connection to the ongoing Biogenesis clinic investigation.

Even with that cloud lingering, Milwaukee got off to a good start.

After Logan Schafer drew a one-out walk in the first inning, back-to-back RBI doubles by Jean Segura and Jonathan Lucroy gave the Brewers a 2-0 lead.

San Diego got one of those runs back in the second. Guzman hit his sixth home run of the season, a two-out, solo shot to right-center.

Segura's fifth-inning groundout scored Norichika Aoki, putting Milwaukee back ahead by two.

NOTES: Milwaukee will make a roster move Tuesday to replace Braun. In a statement, Braun said, "I have made some mistakes. I am willing to accept the consequences of those actions." ... Padres RHP Jason Marquis will miss the remainder of the season due to a damaged ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. With RHP Tyson Ross returning to San Diego's rotation Tuesday, RHP Sean O'Sullivan will start Wednesday in place of Marquis, who was placed on the disabled list Sunday. ... Brewers CF Carlos Gomez missed his second straight game with a sore shoulder and elbow. ... Guzman's second-inning home run snapped a franchise-record 36 scoreless innings thrown by Brewers pitchers.
