Brewers lose to Giants, Weeks to D.L.
SAN FRANCISCO — The Brewers couldn’t solve Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum and host San Francisco, managed a split of the 4 game series with a 4-1 win on Thursday afternoon.
Lincecum regained his Cy Young Award-winning form with 8 innings of shutout ball; he allowed just 1 hit and struck out 8.
Brandon Belt’s 3-run homer off Brewers starter Donovan Hand was more than enough offense for the Giants.
After the game, the Brewers placed 2nd baseman Rickie Weeks on the 15 day disabled list with a hamstring injury he suffered late in Wednesday night’s 6-1 Milwaukee win.
In a corresponding move, Scott Gennett has been re-called from Nashville.
