MILWAUKEE (AP) -Bill Hall hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high five runs, and the Milwaukee Brewers swept the struggling Giants 7-5 on Wednesday to extend San Francisco's losing streak to seven.
The Giants finished their road trip 0-6 and have a day off Thursday before a weekend series at home with the New York Yankees.
The NL Central-leading Brewers have won seven of eight since a 6-13 stretch. They jumped out to a 6-0 lead against Barry Zito, but San Francisco scored five runs in the sixth beginning with a grand slam by Bengie Molina off winner Claudio Vargas (6-1).
Francisco Cordero finished for his major league-leading 27th save in 29 chances.
Barry Bonds entered as a pinch-hitter in the sixth and reached on an error. He didn't add any home runs to his total of 748 in the series.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy was ejected for arguing a call at first base. Zito (6-8) allowed six runs and five hits in four innings. He has lost his last three starts, giving up 15 runs in 13 1-3 innings.
