Lucroy homers in Brewers 8-5 win over Giants

Posted:

 

 MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Aramis Ramirez hit a three-run double in the first inning, Jonathan Lucroy added a two-run homer in the second as Milwaukee built an eight-run lead, and the Brewers rocked Barry Zito again at Miller Park in an 8-5 win over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.

   Zito (3-2) allowed eight runs -- four earned -- five hits and four walks in three innings, dropping to 0-4 with a 7.67 ERA in eight starts at Miller Park.

   Jose Veras (3-1) struck out three over two hitless innings in relief of Marco Estrada, who left after injuring his right leg while running out a first-inning double. John Axford pitched the ninth for his seventh save in eight chances.
