May 27 – Mitch Haniger, J.D. Davis and Patrick Bailey combined for 10 hits and 10 RBIs and Alex Wood tag-teamed with Tristan Beck on a four-hitter as the San Francisco Giants romped past the host Milwaukee Brewers 15-1 on Friday.
The game was marred by a scary second-inning incident in the home dugout when Brewers shortstop Willy Adames was hit on the side of the head by a foul liner. Adames was able to walk to the clubhouse and an evaluation at a hospital shortly thereafter showed no fractures. However, he was hospitalized overnight for further examination, according to manager Craig Counsell.
Haniger homered as part of a three-run second and Davis went deep in a two-run seventh, helping the Giants win for the ninth time in 11 games. They broke the game open with a seven-run third capped by a three-run homer from Brett Wisely.
Brewers starter Freddy Peralta (5-4) gave up 10 runs (five earned) on eight hits in 2 1/3 innings. Wood (1-0) was pulled with two outs in the sixth, leading 12-1. He allowed one run and three hits. Beck pitched the final 3 1/3 innings to earn his first career save.
