SAN FRANCISCO, CA (WHBL) - San Francisco scored three times in the first and rolled to an easy 13-2 win over the Brewers Friday night. The Giants scored in each of the first five innings, including a five-run explosion in the fifth. Despite the loss, the Brewers retained their one-and-a-half game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Central Division race. St. Louis lost 7-2 to the Cubs. Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta was hit early and hit hard, giving up nine hits and six runs in three ineffective innings. The Giants pounded out a total of 19 hits and got a home run from centerfielder Gregor Blanco. Ryan Vogelsong picked up his eighth win of the season. Tom Fiers goes for Milwaukee Saturday night. San Francisco will answer with Jake Peavy.
Due to the fact that WHBL is carrying the Wisconsin Badger/LSU football game Saturday night, the Brewer broadcast will move over to 106.5 "The Buzz." Pregame coverage begins at 7:30.
