MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers are still hanging onto a one-game division lead, despite losing to San Francisco 7-4 Wednesday night at Miller Park. The Giants scored three runs in the first inning and never trailed after that. Yovani Gallardo retired just one batter before ending his string of 17 scoreless frames. He lasted four innings, giving up four runs on nine hits with four walks and four strikeouts. The loss dropped Gallardo to 6-6 on the year, and 6-4 lifetime against San Francisco. Ryan Vogelsong, allowed one run in six innings, giving up seven hits with a walk and three strikeouts. The win improved his mark to 7-8. Pablo Sandoval went 3 for 5 with a two-run homer and a run-scoring single, as the Giants out-hit Milwaukee 14-13 to win their fifth game in their last seven. Carlos Gomez homered for the second straight night, and Khris Davis also went yard for the Brewers. Aramis Ramirez hit a two-run single which got the Crew to within one run in the seventh. The Giants scored three more in the eighth to pull away, as the Brewers dropped their third game in their last four. Saint Louis also lost last night, so Milwaukee keeps its one-game lead over the Cardinals in the National League Central. Third-place Pittsburgh moved to within a game-and-a-half, and Cincinnati is within four after both those teams were victorious. The Brewers and Giants close out their series this afternoon. Right-hander Wily Peralta will start for the Crew against Giants' right-hander Jake Peavy. Pregame coverage on WHBL begins at 12:35.
