Anderson, Brewers slay Giants

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Chase Anderson fired 7.2 scoreless frames against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday evening, allowing six hits and a walk while striking out four hitters. Eric Sogard tagged and scored when left fielder Orlando Calixte's throw sailed high over catcher Buster Posey and caromed off the wall behind home plate.

The bottom of the fifth saw the Brewers take the lead for good. Corey Knebel's flawless ninth for his sixth save finalized the 6-3 win.

"Obviously, that's going to happen every now and again, one rides on you". "I'm really happy with what the Brewers got back in that deal". Eduardo Nunez stretched his streak of reaching base safely by a hit or walk to 22 games. The under is 4-0 in Milwaukee's last four Thursday games, and 7-2 in the Brewers' last nine during game four of a series.

NOTES: The Giants acquired RHP Sam Dyson from the Rangers for cash or a player to be named. Asked if Dyson would need a physical, Bochy said: "I'm sure". Paolo Espina will get the start for the Crew in place of Matt Garza, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a chest contusion caused by a collision with first baseman Jesus Aguilar on Saturday. Over his last seven starts, Samardzija has struck out 51 batters while walking just one. The streak began on September 25, 2012, while Cueto was with the Cincinnati Reds. This season alone he now has a 5-1 record with a 2.91 ERA.
