With two on and one out, Manny Machado lofted an 0-2 fastball into the seats in right for his seventh homer of the year. Jackson Merrill followed by golfing an 0-2 curve over the right field wall for his ninth homer.

Tatis upped the margin to 5-3 in the bottom of the fifth when he plastered a curve an estimated 446 feet deep into the second deck in left-center field for his 14th homer.

San Diego made it 6-3 in the seventh when Yelich lost Jurickson Profar’s liner to left in the lights. The ball bounced to the wall, and Tatis scored all the way from first.

Turang sliced a two-out RBI single to left in the eighth to pull Milwaukee within 6-4.

Mazur lasted 4 2/3 innings in his fourth big league start, permitting three runs on five hits with three walks and three strikeouts.
