Yesterday's Results

Giants 7, Brewers 4

Yovani Gallardo struggled through four innings yesterday, allowing four runs, with three of those coming in the first inning. Marco Estrada pitched a few innings of relief to keep the Brewers alive, but Brandon Kintzler and Tom Gorzelanny combined to allow three more runs, and it was too much for the Brewers to rally from. Aramis Ramirez drove in two runs to lead the offense, and Carlos Gomez and Khris Davis both homered in the loss.
