 The Giants can’t seem to get out of their own way this year, and it has continued to show its ugly head time and time again.

 The latest installment of all that is wrong with this former perennial National League contender was Wednesday night, as the Milwaukee Brewers tagged with a 6-3 loss at Miller Park.

 The Giants have now lost seven of their last nine games overall, and they currently share the NL West bottom spot with the lowly San Diego Padres, as they sport a le4ss-than-stellar 24-37 record.

 Starter Ty Blach (4-3) did not have a very good outing at all. Although he did not walk anyone and struck out three, he gave up five runs on nine hits, and he only pitched six innings to do it.

 The setback snapped Blach’s four-start win streak, which started May 16 and saw him throw at least seven innings in each start. In fact, Blach was coming off his best start of the year, as he threw a complete-game, seven-hit shutout in a 10-0 win at Philadelphia five days ago.

 Meanwhile, Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson (4-3) also went six innings, but he surrendered three runs on seven hits, walking only one and striking out six in the process.

 After Milwaukee jumped out to an early 1-0 lead thanks to a homer by Domingo Santana, the Giants responded with a three-run third inning that was highlighted by Buster Posey’s two-run homer, which game the Giants a 3-1 lead.

 The Brewers used a two-run fourth inning to tie the game, and Milwaukee utilized extra-base hits in innings five through seven to grab the lead for good.

 The Giants and Brewers, who are currently 32-28 and are at the top of the National League Central at this point, will play the final game of this four-game series tomorrow afternoon, as the Giants hope to earn a split, as they took Monday’s opener before losing the next two.
