Brewers now 0-4 against pitchers making big league debuts
The Milwaukee Brewers were shut out for the second time this season and the first time since April 18, after losing 7-0 Sunday to San Francisco at Miller Park.
Ryan Sadowski won his Major League debut, as the Brewers dropped to 0-4 against pitchers making their first appearances in the bigs this year.
Milwaukee only managed four hits, and Casey McGehee's double was the only extra-base hit. But the Brewers did manage to remain tied for first place in the National League Central, after co-leader St. Louis fell to Minnesota 6-2 Sunday.
Sadowski gave up four hits and three walks in six innings, and struck out a pair. He also got singled for his first big league hit.
Nate Schierholtz went 4-5 with a homer, and Matt Downs belted his first career homer for the Giants, who avoided a weekend sweep but had still won three of their last five.
Jeff Suppan took the loss, giving up five runs in five and two-thirds innings. He's now 5-6, as the Brewers lost the second game in their last five.
Tonight, Milwaukee will open a home series against the New York Mets, and the first pitch is 6:05 for an ESPN broadcast.
Right-hander Braden Looper will start against Mets' right-hander Fernando Nieve.
