MLB: Milwaukee 7, San Francisco 2

April 18, 2013 at 4:14 PM

MILWAUKEE, April 18 (UPI) -- Yovani Gallardo hit a home run and allowed five hits in six innings Thursday while helping the Milwaukee Brewers to a 7-2 win over the San Francisco Giants.

Gallardo earlier in the week was arrested for drunken driving, registering 0.22 on a blood alcohol test, which is nearly three times the Wisconsin state legal limit. He issued a lengthy apology Wednesday.

In his first outing since the arrest, Gallardo allowed one run while walking one and striking out six and improved to 1-1.

Ryan Braun staked him to a 2-0 lead with a two-run home run in the first inning off San Francisco starter Matt Cain (0-2).

Gallardo's home run, which came after an RBI single from Yuniesky Betancourt, was a two-run shot over the fence in left-center that put the Brewers up 5-0 in the second inning. It was his 11th home run of his career.

Jonathan Lucroy added a two-run home run in the third for Milwaukee as Cain allowed seven runs -- all earned -- on seven hits in six innings.

Brandon Belt had a sacrifice fly in the fourth that got the Giants on the board and Brandon Crawford had a ninth-inning home run that completed the scoring.
