For the fourth time this season, a Brewers opponent has dipped into the minor leagues for a starting pitcher and for the fourth time in as many tries, that pitcher has won his major league pitching debut.
Ryan Sadowski scattered four hits over six scoreless innings to win his major league debut, 7-0 over the Brewers before 43-thousand plus at Miller Park on Sunday.
Matt Downs hit his first major league home runa nd Nate Schierholtz added four hits, including a home run for the Giants, who ended a 6-game losing streak.
The loss goes to Jeff Suppan, who struggled again. Suppan allowed 5 runs on 9 hits, lasting just 5 2/3 innings.
The Brewers still managed to take 2 of 3 in the series. They'll open a 3-game series against the New York Mets at Miller Park tonight.
