Brew Crew swept by Giants ; head in to big weekend against Arizona

The Milwaukee Brewers have been swept by the San Francisco Giants and have lost five straight games dating back to Friday the 23 when they beat Atlanta 11-0.


The series opened up on Memorial Day, with the Giants rallying back to win 8-4.  The game started off hot for the Brewers who hit three homeruns early.  Khris Davis hit two homers and on the first blast, it appeared that Davis did not touch home plate and Bruce Bochy, the Giants manager, challenged the call and Davis was ruled safe.  Ryan Braun also hit a homer for Milwaukee, a moonshot and the farthest homerun ever hit by a right-handed hitter at Miler Park.  However, the Giants struck back and scored seven runs in the sixth inning off of four Brewers pitchers.  Carlos Gomez committed two errors in the same inning only the second time in his career.


In the second game, Matt Garza gave up six early runs for the Brewers and allowing homeruns to Hunter Pence, Matt Duffy, Buster Posey, and Brandon Crawford.  The Brew Crew scored two runs in the seventh on an Aramis Ramirez homerun, and had the tying run at the plate in the ninth but couldn’t capitalize, and lost 6-3.


Mike Fiers pitched in the finale for Milwaukee pitching great, but the two-run homer by Joe Panik and the Brewers horrible offense gave him the loss, 3-1.  Elian Herrera batted in the only run for the Brewers as Ryan Voglesong pitched incredibly for the Giants.
