SBNation Coverage

Jeff Suppan pitched well, but the Brewers let him down.

Suppan didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning tonight, and left the game having allowed just two hits, two unearned runs and four walks in 5.2 innings of work. The score was tied at 2 into the eighth, when Bengie Molina's solo home run off Todd Coffey gave the Giants the lead for good.

The Brewers managed just six hits in the game but had ten walks, including two each for Prince Fielder, Ryan Braun, Felipe Lopez and Jason Kendall. A bunch of long at bats early in the game led to an early departure for Barry Zito, who threw 96 pitches over four innings. The Brewers had at least one runner on in every inning, but only scored in the first.
