Par-ra for the course, Brewers beat Giants on late home run

Posted-August 5th, 2014 10:55pm

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Gerardo Parra snapped a tie with a home run in the seventh -- his first hit since been acquired by the Brewers -- and Milwaukee recorded the final out of its 4-3 victory Tuesday night against the San Francisco Giants when video replay overturned a safe call at first base.

With two outs in the ninth, Brewers closer Frankie Rodriguez walked Hunter Pence. Joe Panik then bounced to second baseman Rickie Weeks, who was shielded on the play by Pence before making the throw to first. Brewers managed Ron Roenicke challenged the safe call by first base umpire Hal Gibson, which was overturned after a review of about 3 minutes, 17 seconds.

Gerardo Parra, acquired at the trade deadline from Arizona, homered with two outs off reliever Jean Machi (6-1).
