(8/6/14) Gerardo Parra hit a solo homer in the seventh inning last night to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-to-3 home victory over San Francisco
. It was Parra's first hit in a Brewers' uniform, after he was traded from Arizona last week. The homer broke a 3-3 tie. It came off reliever Jean Machi, who took the loss and is now 6-and-1. Milwaukee starter Jimmy Nelson got the win, striking out five in seven innings to improve to 2-and-2. Nelson gave up a three-run homer to Pablo Sandoval which tied the game in the sixth. That was after Carlos Gomez hit a two-run shot, and drove in a run on a bunt single that scored Rickie Weeks from third. In the eighth, Parra made a sliding catch to snuff out a potential San Francisco rally. Giants' starter Tim Lincecum struck out eight in a six-inning no-decision. Francisco Rodriguez got his 33rd save after a replay call ended the game. Joe Panik was ruled safe on a grounder to second as the potential winning run with two out. But the Brewers challenged the call and it was reversed. Milwaukee continues to lead the National League Central by a game over Saint Louis. Pittsburgh fell to two-and-a-half back in third, with fourth-place Cincinnati five off the pace. The Brewers and Giants will play again tonight at Miller Park. Right-hander Yovani Gallardo faces Giants' right-hander Ryan Vogelsong.
