Recap: San Francisco vs. Milwaukee

San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Jeff Francoeur's pinch-hit RBI single in the eighth inning lifted the San Francisco Giants to a 4-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday.

Hunter Pence drew a leadoff walk then stole second base. Brewers reliever John Axford (5-5) then looked to intentionally walk Pablo Sandoval, but threw the ball over catcher Jonathan Lucroy's head and off the backstop, allowing Pence to take third.

Axford eventually walked Sandoval before he was replaced by Michael Gonzalez, who issued a free pass to Brandon Belt to load the bases. Francoeur followed with a grounder through the hole on the left side to score Pence.

After Gregor Blanco popped out to the catcher, Joaquin Arias laced a grounder down the line. Third baseman Jeff Bianchi was unable to handle the hard-hit grounder and it skipped into left field, allowing Sandoval and Belt to come around for a 4-2 lead.

Juan Francisco clobbered a solo homer with one out in the ninth, but Sergio Romo retired the next two hitters to notch his 27th save of the season.

Santiago Casilla (5-2) earned the win with a scoreless eighth inning. Starter Chad Gaudin allowed just on run on four hits while striking out eight over 6 1/3 innings.

Francisco finished the game 2-for-3 with two RBI for the Brewers.

The Giants got on the board in the fourth inning thanks to Francisco's throwing error. With runners on first and second and no outs, Blanco ripped a grounder to Francisco, whose throw to second for a potential double-play skipped bast shortstop Jean Segura and into left field, allowing Belt to score.

The Brewers tied the game in the seventh inning. Lucroy opened the inning with a double and Caleb Gindl walked to put runners at first and second. Francisco followed with a ground-rule double to right-center to score Lucroy.

Game Notes

San Francisco went a dismal 1-for-13 with runners in scoring position ... Francoeur had the only RBI for the Giants ... Pence, who walked three times on Monday, walked just three times in all of July ... Milwaukee starter Tyler Thornburg gave up one unearned run on seven hits over six innings.

Johnson headlines FCS players of the week

In 2013, the Montana State Bobcats made a bit of an offensive switch, going from a pass-heavy system to a more run- integrated style of play. The reason wasn't because the team was unstable at quarterback, but rather due to the fact the Bobcats were loaded at the running back position.
