MILWAUKEE, July 8 (UPI) -- Aubrey Huff hit a home run and drove in four runs Thursday in powering the San Francisco Giants to a 9-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Huff had one of three home runs for the Giants, with Andres Torres and Buster Posey adding late-inning home runs.

San Francisco used six pitchers in the game. Starter Barry Zito, who allowed seven hits and walked six while striking out seven, didn't make it out of the fifth inning. The win went to Dan Runzler (3-0), who got two outs in the sixth inning but left the game with a knee injury, with San Francisco up 6-2.

Manny Parra (3-6) took the loss, with the Giants getting 10 hits and six runs (four earned) off him in five innings.

Huff singled in Torres in the first and hit a two-run home run in the third. The Giants added three runs in the fourth when Freddy Sanchez doubled in two runs and scored on a Huff sacrifice fly.

Milwaukee chipped away with single runs in each the fourth, fifth and sixth innings. Bases-loaded walks accounted for the latter two runs.
