MILWAUKEE, July 5 (UPI) -- Buster Posey homered and scored the go-ahead run on a fielding error Monday in the San Francisco Giants' 6-1 win over Milwaukee.

With the scored tied 1-1, Posey singled to lead off the seventh inning and advanced to third on Trevor Ishikawa's single and a walk issued by Kameron Loe (0-1) to Andres Torres.

Freddy Sanchez hit a routine grounder to Alcides Escobar but the Brewers shortstop bobbled the ball, allowing Posey to score the go-ahead run and opening the door to a four-run rally.

Posey added a solo shot in the eighth and Aubrey Huff went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI as the Giants won for only the second time in 10 games.

Jonathan Sanchez (7-6) got the win, yielding only one run in six innings despite allowing six walks.

Brewers starter Dave Bush pitched well in a no-decision, holding San Francisco to one run on five hits in a six-inning effort.
