SAN FRANCISCO, May 5 (UPI) -- Aramis Ramirez delivered a two-run, tiebreaking single in the seventh inning Friday that gave the Milwaukee Brewers a 6-4 win over San Francisco.

The Brewers won for the first time in three tries and the Giants have dropped four straight.

San Francisco rallied to tie it with a three-run sixth against starter Zack Greinke but the Brewers quickly regained the lead and kept it the rest of the way.

Both Norichika Aoki and Rickie Weeks reached on one-out, infield singles in the seventh off Clay Hensley (1-3). Sergio Romo came on to replace Hensley and got Corey Hart on a fly ball to deep center, but Aoki and Weeks were both able to take up and advance.

Ramirez was next and his single on an 0-1 pitch delivered both runners.

Kameron Loe (2-0) got the win after replacing Greinke in the sixth and working his way out of a jam. John Axford struck out two in a perfect ninth for his sixth save.
