Shaw, Yelich homer for Brewers
Christian Yelich finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a stolen base Saturday night in a 4-3 victory at home over San Francisco, while Travis Shaw was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. The long balls for Yelich and Shaw were their 28th of the season each. Jesus Aguilar went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run. Gio Gonzalez earned the win in his first start with Milwaukee as he allowed one unearned run on three hits with seven strikeouts and no walks over 5 2/3 innings. Jeremy Jeffress picked up his 10th save as he gave up one hit with two strikeouts and one walk over 1 1/3 innings.
Jones hits homer in defeat
Ryder Jones hit a pinch-hit 2-run home run in his lone at-bat in the Giants' loss Saturday at Milwaukee. Austin Slater finished 1-for-3 with an RBI. Chris Stratton took the loss as he allowed four earned runs on four hits with six strikeouts and three walks over five innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Giants are 15-5 in their last 20 Sunday games. The under is 24-9-2 in the last 35 San Francisco road games.
The over is 11-1 in the Brewers' last 12 Sunday games. Milwaukee is 4-10 in its last 14 Sunday games.
While the San Francisco offense is struggling even more than it previously had after the trade of Andrew McCutchen and the season-ending hip surgery of Buster Posey, it faces a hittable pitcher today in Davies who is still rounding into shape after missing months with an injury. With the Giants' ace on the mound in Bumgarner, he'll give them a fighting chance and I think he does well enough to get the job done here as San Francisco ends its seven-game losing skid.
