The Milwaukee Brewers didn’t get off to the second half start they hoped for. The San Francisco Giants defeated the Brewers Friday night 10-7.
Closer Josh Hader blew his second save of the season allowing home runs in both the eighth and ninth innings.
Opposing hitters have a .114 average against Josh Hader. But nine of the 17 hits have cleared the fence.
Counsell: "I think we have to live with the fact that he’s going to give up some runs sometimes. And that’s how he gives up his runs; that’s the nature of how he pitches."

Milwaukee plated a run in the bottom of the ninth to force extra innings but the Giants quickly finished them off.
Matt Albers gave up a grand slam to Buster Posey which wrapped up the victory for San Francisco.
