MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers have lost two straight, after falling to San Francisco 6-1 yesterday at Miller Park.
The Giants broke a 1-1 tie with four runs in the seventh inning off Kameron Loe, who took the loss in his first decision of the year. Alcides Escobar bobbled a double-play grounder, his third error in two days, which allowed the Giants to score the tie-breaking run. Aubrey Huff then put San Francisco in front for good with a two-run single. Huff also doubled twice and scored once, as he went 3-for-4 on the day. Buster Posey added a solo homer, as the Giants won for only the second time in their last 10 games. Jonathan Sanchez got the win, improving to 7-6. He struck out six in six innings, and gave up one run on five hits with a half-dozen walks.
The Brewer loss ruined a quality start from Dave Bush, who gave up one run on five hits in six innings with a walk and four strikeouts. Corey Hart and Casey McGehee both singled and doubled. Hart extended his hitting streak to 20 games, the longest active streak in the Majors. The Brewers blew plenty of scoring chances as they were out-hit 10-7, left 12 on base, and went 0-for-12 with runners in scoring position. Rickie Weeks drove home Milwaukee's only run on a bases-loaded walk, in its fourth loss in six contests.
The Brewers and Giants will play again tonight. Left-hander Randy Wolf will face Giants' southpaw Madison Bumgarner.
