A sixth-inning grand slam by Jonathan Schoop powered Milwaukee past the San Francisco Giants Sunday by a 6-3 score.
Ryan Braun was it by a pitch during an at bat.
Rookie Corbin Burnes earned his fourth win in relief and Corey Knebel closed the door for his 15th save. Manager Craig Counsell is very happy with how his team performed during their homestand, ending the week with 5 wins and 1 loss.
The weekend sweep leaves the Brewers two games behind the Chicago Cubs in the N-L Central Division standings with a three-game series in Chicago coming up. Wade Miley takes the mound for the Brewers in the first game of the Chicago series. A sweep would return Milwaukee to first place.
