Johnny Cueto earns 10th win as Giants sweep Brewers

Posted:


   
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Johnny Cueto struck out nine over seven innings for his team-leading 10th win, and the San Francisco Giants completed a sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers with a 10-1 victory Wednesday.
   
Buster Posey hit a bases-loaded, two-run single in the third to get things going on a big offensive day, and Matt Duffy followed with an RBI single against Jimmy Nelson (5-6) as the Giants used a balanced offensive attack on the way to their fifth straight win.
   
Four Giants had three hits to help NL West-leading San Francisco (41-26) move a season-high 15 games over .500.
   
Brewers nemesis Cueto (10-1) won his eighth straight against the Brewers, seventh consecutive decision overall and the Giants improved to 12-2 in his outings, including April 5 at Milwaukee. Cueto, who pitched for the Cincinnati Reds in the NL Central, is 11-3 in 20 career starts against Milwaukee.
