Mat Latos should have thrown a victory party after he got a no-decision May 3 against Pittsburgh at Petco Park.
Latos took the loss again Monday night in Milwaukee.
He has now lost 10 consecutive decisions over an 11-game run to fall to 0-5 this season. Latos gave up four runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings Monday night in the Padres' 4-3 loss to the Brewers.
Gary Ross set the Padres' record for consecutive losses with 11 in the Padres inaugural season of 1969. Dennis Tankersley also lost 10 straight decisions from May 31, 2002, through Sept. 4, 2004.
Latos had already tied the Padres' record for nine losses in nine consecutive starts.
Latos wild-pitched home the Brewers' first run Monday and also gave up a solo homer to Rickie Weeks.
After six starts this season, Latos has a 4.86 ERA, and he has allowed six homers. After six starts last season, Latos was 2-3 with a 4.19 ERA and had allowed eight home runs. His fifth start began his big-league-record run of 15 straight starts allowing two or fewer runs while working at least five innings in each outing.
