Recap

Giants 5, Brewers 2: Madison Bumgarner won his fifth straight start and added a run-scoring double as host San Francisco snapped a four-game losing skid.

Bumgarner (5-1) allowed one run and six hits in seven innings and has given up just six runs during his winning streak.

Buster Posey delivered the tiebreaking single and Brett Pill ripped a slicing run-scoring double to right-center field during a three-run sixth inning that gave the Giants their first lead in 43 innings.

The Brewers pulled within 4-2 in the eighth on Ryan Braun’s homer to left field against Guillermo Mota, but San Francisco boosted the lead back to three in the bottom of the inning on a booming double to left-center field by Hector Sanchez.

Santiago Casilla worked the ninth for his fifth save.

Milwaukee took a 1-0 lead in the second when Aramis Ramirez hit a leadoff double and scored on a one-out single to center by Alex Gonzalez. San Francisco tied the contest in the fifth when Sanchez led off the inning with a double and Bumgarner lined a one-out double into the left-field corner.

Milwaukee starter Randy Wolf (2-3) allowed four runs and nine hits in six innings.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Brewers shortstop Alex Gutierrez departed with a right knee injury after stealing a base in the second inning … Giants outfielder Angel Pagan went 1-for-4 to stretch his hitting streak to 19 games … Braun missed the opener of the series with an Achilles’ tendon injury and went 1-for-4 on Saturday … Posey, Sanchez and Melky Cabrera each had two of San Francisco’s 10 hits.
