Fielder started the Brewers' scoring in the second with a leadoff line drive homer to right off Josh Banks (3-5). After a pair of walks, Jason Kendall hit an RBI single and Sabathia drove in a run with a ground out.
Milwaukee scored again in the fifth after two walks, including an intentional one to Fielder that loaded the bases, and an infield single. Hart followed with a triple into the left-field corner to knock Banks from the game. Craig Counsell added a sacrifice fly.
Banks allowed seven runs and five hits with six walks in 4 1-3 innings.
Notes: The eight-game winning streak matches Milwaukee's season high. ... Padres rookie shortstop Scott Kazmar had a memorable major league debut with a single in his first at-bat on the first pitch he saw against Sabathia. Kazmar was recalled from Double-A San Antonio on Tuesday. ... Brewers LF Ben Braun sat out his fourth consecutive game with tightness in his lower back.
