Aguilar's 2-out hit backs Nelson as Brewers beat Giants 6-3

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Chase Anderson fired 7.2 scoreless frames against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday evening, allowing six hits and a walk while striking out four hitters.

"It was effective", Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said.

Junior Guerra, who turned in back-to-back strong starts after coming off the disabled list late last month for a right calf injury from opening day, struggled with his command.

Their commitment did mean the release of 10 Americans from North Korean custody while Obama was president. His family said it was told he had been a coma since soon after his March 2016 sentencing.

It's worked out for both sides, Brewers radio announcer Jeff Levering tells WTMJ's Wisconsin's Morning News, noting that Segura not only had a great season in 2016 for the Diamondbacks, but also now leads the American League in hitting (.341) for his new team, the Seattle Mariners. The Giants' staked him to an early lead and he responded by pounding the strike zone and getting plenty of easy outs, needing just 112 pitches to complete the game. After all, he struck out a combined 21 hitters without a walk over his previous two games. He struck out 10 batters and didn't issue a walk. He threw out a runner at second but dropped a fly ball at a key point.

The Brewers acquired 18-year-old infielder Yeison Coca from the Red Sox to complete the December trade in which Milwaukee sent reliever Tyler Thornburg to Boston for Shaw, shortstop prospect Mauricio Dubon and pitching prospect Josh Pennington. "You hate to sit someone who's come up for a couple of days, especially a guy with so little experience", manager Bruce Bochy said. Nelson outdueled Clayton Kershaw and left the game in position for the victory, but Corey Knebel blew the save in the ninth. Posey fell hard after tripping over first base in the eighth but got to his feet immediately and remained in the game. Tomorrow's series finale has the Giants (24-37) sending out Johnny Cueto (5-5, 4.38) to face Milwaukee's Paolo Espino (0-0, 4.50), making his second major league appearance and second start. The Giants would respond with three runs in the top of the third to take a 3-1 lead. He is 2-2 with a 2.70 ERA and 39 strikeouts over his last five starts.
