Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Chase Headley clinched the National League RBI title by knocking in a pair of runs, one of which came on a seventh-inning triple that lifted the San Diego Padres to a 7-6 decision over the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2012 season finale for both clubs at Miller Park.

Headley also delivered a run-scoring double to finish with 115 RBI, three more than Milwaukee's Ryan Braun. The third baseman is the second Padre ever to lead the NL in that category, joining Dave Winfield in 1979.

Cameron Maybin added a two-run homer and Chris Denorfia had a solo shot to help San Diego (76-86) rally back from a 6-0 deficit and end a three-game losing streak.

Six Padre relievers contributed to the comeback by combining for 6 1/3 scoreless innings, with Tommy Layne (2-0) earning the win with a perfect 1 1/3 frames of work.

Travis Ishikawa drove in four runs for Milwaukee (83-79), which had taken the first two tests of this series.

The Brewers' Josh Stinson allowed just one run on three hits over four innings in his first major league start. Jim Henderson (1-3) was saddled with the loss after surrendering two runs as San Diego pulled ahead in the seventh.
