By Corey Brock / MLB.com
PEORIA, Ariz. -- Yonder Alonso continued his tear at the plate with a two-run home run and a run-scoring double on Sunday as the Padres topped the Brewers, 6-4, in a Cactus League game at the Peoria Sports Complex.
Alonso had an RBI double in the first inning and then drilled his fifth home run of the spring, a long two-run shot onto the grass berm in right field in the fifth inning.
All of Alonso's home runs have come in the last nine games he's played.
Milwaukee shortstop Donnie Murphy had a home run, his second of spring, and a double. Murphy, who came into the game with three spring RBIs, knocked in three runs.
The Brewers' leadoff hitter and right fielder, Norichika Aoki, and third baseman Blake Davis each had doubles.
Milwaukee pitcher Wily Peralta allowed six runs on 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings with three walks and four strikeouts. Peralta is projected to be the No. 3 starter in the Brewers' rotation.
San Diego starting pitcher Eric Stults, slated to be the No. 4 starter in the rotation, allowed four runs on seven hits with four strikeouts.
Mark Kotsay reached base three times and Cody Ransom hit a home run, his fourth, to pace the Padres' offense. Jedd Gyorko added two hits as well.
Up next: Left-hander Chris Narveson will be on the mound for his penultimate exhibition start on Monday, when the Brewers travel across town to Phoenix Municipal Stadium for a 3:05 p.m. CT game against the A's. Bartolo Colon gets the start for Oakland in a game to be broadcast on the Brewers Radio Network with Bob Uecker and Joe Block.
