For the first time during the 2023 MLB season, the Giants have crossed the .500 mark, and they got there in style on Friday night.

After letting the Milwaukee Brewers score one run in the bottom of the first inning, the Giants responded with 15 unanswered runs to retire with a 15-1 win at American Family Field.

Outfielder Mitch Haniger gave the Giants (26-25) a lead they didn’t want to relinquish with a two-run homer in the top of the second inning.

The Giants blew the game open with a seven-run third inning, started by JD Davis’ RBI double that drove in Blake Sabol.

After Haniger doubled in another run and rookie Patrick Bailey drove in a run with an infield single, Brett Wisely capped the score in the third inning with a massive three-run homer.

The Giants moved in two more runs in the sixth inning on RBI singles by Michael Conforto and rookie Casey Schmitt.

In the seventh, Davis scored his ninth homer of the season, a two-run shot that put the Giants ahead 14–1.

Bailey ended his first career four-game game with a ground rule double in the top of the eighth inning to bring in his third run of the game.

Alex Wood had his best game of the season, throwing 5 2/3 innings while allowing only three hits and one earned run. He walked five batters and struckout five batters on 95 pitches.

Rookie Tristan Beck went the rest of the way, allowing only one hit in 3 1/3 innings as he struckout two Brewers batters. He got his first career credit, except for the trouble.

The Giants are on a roll, winning four of five games on the road trip and nine of their last 11 games to get to this point.
