MILWAUKEE, July 24 (UPI) -- Carlos Gomez had four hits and drove in two runs with a third-inning double Wednesday, leading Milwaukee to a 3-1 decision over San Diego.

The Brewers won for the fifth time in seven games, overcoming an early homer by San Diego's Nick Hundley.

Gomez gave Milwaukee a 2-1 advantage with his blast and the Brewers picked up another run in the seventh when Hundley threw wildly in a bid to catch Gomez stealing second. The bad throw allowed Norichika Aoki to score from third.

Kyle Lohse (7-7) allowed a run on five hits over seven innings to get the victory, his fourth in five starts. Jim Henderson worked around a walk in the ninth to capture his 11th save.

The setback was suffered by Sean O'Sullivan (0-2), who gave up three runs on seven hits in 6 1/3.
