Brewers sweep Giants

Published On: Apr 18 2013 05:00:34 PM CDT

MILWAUKEE -

Yovani Gallardo homered and struck out six in his first start since being arrested on a drunken driving charge, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat San Francisco 7-2 Thursday for a three-game sweep.

Gallardo (1-1) was arrested early Tuesday morning. The right-hander allowed five hits, one walk and one earned run in six innings.

Milwaukee took all three games from the World Series champion Giants and won its season-high fourth in a row after a 1-8 skid.

Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy also homered for Milwaukee, which swept San Francisco for the first time since July 18-20, 2008.
