Chris Anderson pitched another great game for the Milwaukee Brewers, as they took an early lead on the San Francisco Giants.

Anderson pitched 7.2 strong innings, not allowing a run, walking one and striking out four and the Brewers defeated the Giants 5-3 at Miller Park.

This was just the third win in 17 games for the Giants, as Anderson extended his scoreless inning streak up to 21.2.

The Brewers came up with three double plays, with two of them started by hitting hero Hernan Perez. The third baseman hit a home run, helping the Brewers to a win over the Giants, who are now 2-3 on their current seven road trip.

Anderson came up his first RBI of the season and the fifth of his big-league career, as he doubled in the bottom of the third inning.

Matt Cain gave up 10 hits, walking two and striking out three in five innings of work. Cain last won on the road on August 6 in a 7-1 victory over the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park.

Cain gave up four runs in the bottom of the second inning, that included Perez’s home run, a two-run double from former Oakland A’s second baseman Eric Sogard and Domingo Santana drove in a run with a single.

The Giants tried to make a game of it in the top of the ninth inning, as they scored three runs, two of them off of Carlos Torres, who allowed two runs on three consecutive singles. Buster Posey drove in a run with a single, and then Torres committed a throwing error that allowed another run to score.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell saw enough, as he went to his bullpen again and brought on Craig Knebel, who was able to retire the three batters he faced in a row to pick-up his sixth save of the season.

NOTES: Ty Blach makes his first ever start against the Brewers on Wednesday night, while the Brewers counter with Jimmy Nelson.

Hunter Pence started his second game in a row after being activated prior to the finale on Sunday afternoon against the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Giants acquired reliever Sam Dyson and cash considerations from the Texas Rangers, while the Rangers will get a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Dyson was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Friday, as he is 1-6 with 10.80 earned run average in 17 games this season.
