Hundley, Venable homer in Padres' win over Brewers

 Hundley, Venable homer in Padres' win over Brewers

Nick Hundley and Will Venable each homered, and Tyson Ross won for the first time in over a year in the San Diego Padres' 6-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.

Hundley was 3 for 4 with three runs batted in for San Diego, which won back-to-back games for the first time since June 20-21.

Ross (1-4), recalled from Triple-A Tucson earlier Tuesday, earned his first victory since May 14, 2012. The right-hander, who had lost 12 straight decisions _ including seven as a starter _ gave up just two hits and one run. He struck out six and walked two in a season-high six innings in his first start since April 17.

Milwaukee starter Donovan Hand (0-2) lasted four innings before he left with a bruised right hand after being hit by a pitch.
