Brewers squander chance for road win

The Milwaukee Brewers wasted another solid pitching performance by Tyler Thornburg, falling to the San Francisco Giants 4-2 in San Francisco on Monday night.

Thornburg worked six solid innings, allowing just 1 unearned run for his second straight solid outing.

Unfortunately, the Brewers train derailed in the 8th inning.  The final blow came when Jeff Bianchi booted a routine ground ball that turned into a pair of runs and a loss.

Juan Francisco homered in the loss as the Brewers have dropped 4 of their last 5 games.

Game 2 of the series is tonight.
