Sheets outpitched Jake Peavy (9-10), who gave up a run and five hits with four walks in seven innings.

Prince Fielder's run-scoring double in the third inning proved the winner.

The Brewers remained four games behind the first-place Chicago Cubs in the National League Central. The Padres lost for the fifth time in six games.

Sheets (13-7) had never beaten the Padres in four previous starts.
