Cabrera hustles for inside-the-park homer
MILWAUKEE -- With the Padres down 1-0 to the Brewers in the top of the third, shortstop Everth Cabrera hit a line drive that snuck under Carlos Gomez's glove in center field and went all the way to the wall, leading to an inside-the-park home run.

It was the first inside-the-park homer of the season for the Padres, and the first since Chris Denorfia hit one against the Dodgers on Aug. 5, 2010. San Diego now has 20 such homers in the history of the franchise.

Cabrera's home run was the first hit of the night for the Padres, as Brewers starter Shaun Marcum retired the first seven batters he faced. It was part of a 2-for-3 performance for Cabrera, which also included a walk with the bases loaded to put the Padres up 2-1 in the third inning and a double.

"I'm seeing some good swings," Padres manager Bud Black said. "He hit the ball on the nose three times tonight. He had a good at-bat with the bases loaded walk."
