Five-run inning lifts Giants past Brewers

Posted:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Hunter Pence doubled in Matt Duffy to break a scoreless tie in the seventh inning and the San Francisco Giants held on to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-0 on Wednesday.

Pence also made two sparkling defensive plays in the outfield as the Giants bounced back from their only loss on this six-game homestand to beat the Brewers for the fifth time in six games this season.

Ehire Adrianza added a two-run single and Brandon Crawford had a sacrifice fly for the defending World Series champs, who scored all of their runs in the fourth.

San Francisco has won 10 of 12 games since the All-Star break.

Hunter Strickland (1-1) retired three batters for the win, his first since Sept. 27, 2014.
