SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- Pinch-hitter Jeff Francoeur drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning Monday and San Francisco went on to a 4-2 victory over Milwaukee.

The game was tied 1-1 in the eighth when the Giants used three walks to load the bases with one out and Francoeur, batting for Roger Kieschnick, sent a broken-bat liner to left field, sending home Hunter Pence.

San Francisco added to its lead later in the inning when Milwaukee third baseman Jeff Bianchi misplayed a Joaquin Arias grounder, allowing two more runs to score.

Santiago Casilla (5-2) notched the decision after tossing a scoreless eighth and Sergio Romo picked up his 27th save despite yielding a solo homer to Juan Francisco in the ninth.

Giants starter Chad Gaudin surrendered one run on four hits over 6 1/3 innings, striking out eight.

Brewers counterpart Tyler Thornburg allowed only one unearned run on seven hits over six full innings as Milwaukee dropped the opener of a four-game series.
