SAN FRANCISCO (WKOW) -- Madison Bumgarner shut down Milwaukee for seven innings and added an RBI double to win his eighth straight home start, helping the San Francisco Giants snap a four-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Brewers on Saturday.
Ebem worse news for the Brewers is that starting shortstop Alex Gonzalez is headed to the disabled list. In the second inning Gonzalez hurt his right leg trying to steal second. He had to be helped off the field and never returned. Gonzalez won't know the severity of his injury until after his MRI Moday.
Buster Posey and Brett Pill added RBI hits in a three-run sixth inning against Randy Wolf to give Bumgarner (5-1) all the support he needed as the Giants ended a season-worst losing streak.
The Giants had not led a game at any point during their recent skid and struggled early against Wolf (2-3), putting just one runner in scoring position in the first four innings.
