San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) – Norichika Aoki capped a four-run eighth
with a two-run single and the Milwaukee Brewers took advantage of a sloppy
inning from the Giants to win, 6-1, in the third installment of a four-game
series.

Khris Davis homered and pinch-hitter Martin Maldonado singled in a run in the
ninth, but the big play came in the eighth on Madison Bumgarner’s error.

Davis singled and Yuniesky Betancourt doubled to put two runners in scoring
position. Jeff Bianchi legged out an infield hit for a run when shortstop
Brandon Crawford double-clutched before making a throw on a routine play.

Pinch-hitter Logan Schafer bunted, but Bumgarner’s low throw to third base
deflected off the glove of Pablo Sandoval and went through his legs into foul
territory. Betancourt scampered home and Bianchi went to third. One out later,
Santiago Casilla gave up Aoki’s two-run hit to center for a 4-1 margin.
