Ryan Braun was 0-for-3 with a walk and the Milwaukee Brewers (65-61) mustered only four hits in a 2-0 loss to the host San Francisco Giants, 2-0.

In one of his best performances since being called up in early June, Brad Goldberg allowed one hit in 1.1 innings as the Chicago White Sox (48-75) lost the second game of a doubleheader to the visiting Minnesota Twins, 10-2.

Richard Bleier, Max Fried, and Danny Valencia did not appear for their ball clubs.

Pardon the Interruption continued their coverage of the Ian Kinsler-Angel Hernandez feud, again seeming to back up the Detroit Tiger as umpires wore wrist bands in protest of MLB’s fine-but-no-suspension punishment. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus was not amused.
