Small Ball Lifts Brewers Over Giants

MILWAUKEE - Pinch-hitter Jonathan Lucroy's bases-loaded suicide squeeze scored Ryan Braun with one out in the ninth,lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.

Lucroy's well-executed bunt was out of the reach of pitcher Guillermo Mota. Braun easily scored and Lucroy began pumping his fists halfway down the line.

Milwaukee is 7-1 on this homestand and 20-7 overall at Miller Park this season, the best home mark in the NL.

The Brewers squandered a 2-0 lead after the Giants scored twice in the eighth.

Braun and Prince Fielder opened with consecutive singles off Mota (2-2) in the ninth. Casey McGehee's groundout moved them to scoring position and Lucroy came up after Yuniesky Betancourt was intentionally walked.
