Webb wins 9th, Giants hit 2 HRs, beat slumping Brewers 9-5

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Logan Webb pitched six strong innings for his ninth win to keep the Giants rolling into the All-Star break with a 9-5 victory over the slumping Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.

LaMonte Wade Jr. hit a three-run home run. Brandon Belt also connected and drove in three runs as the Giants won their third straight against the Brewers after dropping the series opener.

San Francisco has won seven of nine overall heading into the All-Star break after losing 14 of its previous 18.

The NL Central-leading Brewers are heading in the opposite direction with their eighth loss in 11 games. Milwaukee's division lead fell to a half game over St. Louis after the Cardinals were rained out against the Reds.

Webb (9-3) bounced back after Willy Adames' 19th home run with one out in the first inning. Backed by a pair of double plays, Webb allowed two runs and four hits with five strikeouts.

Webb, who has a 1.35 ERA over his last three outings, left after walking Andrew McCutchen leading off the seventh. McCutchen scored on Hunter Renfroe's double against Jakob Junis.

Belt had a two-out, broken-bat RBI single off Aaron Ashby (2-7) as a pinch-hitter in the second, then hit a two-run homer to right off Jason Alexander in the sixth.

  • Joc Pederson's RBI double off the brick wall in right field sparked San Francisco's five-run third. Joey Bart legged out an infield single with two outs to score Evan Longoria before Wade hit his third home run of the season and third career drive into McCovey Cove.

    Rowdy Tellez hit his 18th home run for Milwaukee in the eighth.

    ALL-STAR ADDITION

    Milwaukee RHP Devin Williams was added to the NL All-Star roster for the first time in his career, replacing Braves pitcher Max Fried. Corbin Burnes and Josh Hader were also selected to the Mid-Summer Classic but will not play.

    Giants: An MRI taken of SS Brandon Crawford's left knee showed no structural damage. ... 2B Tommy La Stella could begin a rehab assignment after the All-Star break.
