Recap

Brewers 6, Giants 4: Aramis Ramirez delivered the two-run tiebreaking single as visiting Milwaukee extended San Francisco’s losing skid to four games.

Ramirez singled into left field in the seventh off Sergio Romo drove in Norichika Aoki and Rickie Weeks, who both had infield hits against Clay Hensley (1-3) earlier in the inning.

John Axford struck out two in the ninth for his sixth save. Kameron Loe (2-0) got the win after getting two outs in the sixth.

The Giants had tied the contest with a three-run sixth. Melky Cabrera tripled home one run and scored on Buster Posey’s single. The tying run scored on an error by Weeks.

Milwaukee tallied three times in the first on just one hit as San Francisco starter Tim Lincecum battled wildness. Two walks, a hit by pitch and a wild pitch led to Milwaukee’s first run and Jonathan Lucroy capped the inning with a two-run single to center.

San Francisco strung together three straight singles in the fifth, with a Joaquin Arias hit driving home a run. Milwaukee got the run back in the top of the sixth when Lucroy tripled and scored on a suicide-squeeze bunt by Travis Ishikawa.
Lincecum left after five innings despite allowing just two hits. He struck out four and walked four. Milwaukee starter Zack Greinke allowed four runs (three earned) and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun didn’t play due to the Achilles’ tendon injury he suffered Wednesday against the San Diego Padres … Giants outfielder Angel Pagan went 2-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to 18 games … San Francisco hitters fanned 11 times.
