Crawford homers to back Heston as Giants win again, 4-2

Posted:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Brandon Crawford hit a two-run homer to help rookie Chris Heston win his fifth consecutive decision, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 Monday night for their sixth straight victory.

Heston (11-5) allowed two runs and five hits over seven innings as the defending World Series champions moved a season-high 11 games over .500 with their seventh home victory in a row and 12th in 13 overall.

Milwaukee outfielder Carlos Gomez was ejected in the ninth after tossing his helmet following a replay reversal of what had been a stolen base. He later threw a batting glove.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell came out to argue and also got tossed, his first career ejection as a player or manager.
