MILWAUKEE (AP) -Ben Sheets pitched his 13th career complete game and Milwaukee took advantage of rookie Tim Lincecum's wildness for a 6-2 victory Tuesday night that extended San Francisco's losing streak to six games.
Sheets (8-3) allowed three runs or less in his 12th straight start, and went the distance for the second time this season. Prince Fielder added three RBIs for the NL Central-leading Brewers.
Since being no-hit by Justin Verlander on June 12, the Brewers have won six of seven, and they have the best home mark in the NL (24-12).
Barry Bonds went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout to remain at 748 career home runs, seven shy of Hank Aaron's record.
Sheets gave up six hits and struck out four in his first complete game since throwing a two-hitter on opening day.
Corey Hart led off the game with a single then Lincecum (2-2) walked the next three hitters before Bill Hall and Johnny Estrada hit sacrifice flies to make it 3-0.
