The Milwaukee Brewers All-Star Helper took the hill for the first time since his apology for past racist, homophobic tweets.
SAN FRANCISCO – It was better late than never for the Milwaukee Brewers offensive on Thursday night at AT & T Park.
The Brewers scored twice in the eighth inning to take the lead and three times in ninth, finishing the game against the San Francisco Giants 7-5.
Christian Yelich had a big night, missed three times and drove three runs and two more. Travis Shaw heaved himself up in the ninth as well as the Brewers a six-game-straight losing streak in the opener of an eight-game West Coast swing.
Reliever Josh Hader also made his first appearance in a street game since his controversial tweets from 2011 were dug up. It was a moment that produced surprisingly little vitriol from the crowd of 40,643, which buckled its entrance briefly in the sixth inning.
"Like I said, I can not control what you're going to tell me made mistakes in my previous years, "said Hader. "I just have to go out and focus on what I have to do, and this is to make an exit and help this team win, I can not let my mistakes distract me from my current job I do not like what I said then, and I obviously regret what came out, but we live and learn as human beings, we are not perfect, so you learn what you are doing and just become a better person. "
Hader put in 1ª innings of work and was credited with the win.
"Pitching is the same," Hader said. "My job is to get out there and help the team, I will not be distracted from my job and stop myself from helping the team."
The Brewers took the lead in the eighth with Yelich The beginning was inning with a hard shot to first base, which Austin Slater could not handle.
Two batters later, Shaw hit a single left against the shift, which moved Yelich to the third. Ryan Braun, who hit with a pinch, followed with his own left-back, who secured Milwaukee's first lead since the 2: 3.
Erik Kratz scored the first goal to score Shaw 4-2
Jeremy Jeffress took charge of the round of 16 and found immediate trouble by hitting both Austin Slater and Andrew McCutchen. Slater eventually climbed to third place in a wild field and met one who should have been a double-play grounder from Buster Posey.
But Tyler Saladino – already with a mistake on his account in the evening – clung twice to Ball before the throw and Posey reached. Jeffress recovered to beat Evan Longoria just to see Brandon Crawford single who could lure the runners for Hunter Pence into the corner.
Manager Craig Counsell called Corey Knebel at that time, and he got Hunter Pence. It was a nasty turn ball to keep the Brewers at the top.
They filled her with an RBI single by Jesús Aguilar and a two-headed Homer to the right of Shaw at the head of Ninth.
Knebel made things interesting in the bottom of the ninth by allowing a few runs, but he beat Nick Hundley, the possible tie run, to end the game.
Milwaukee snatched a quick 1-0 lead in the first against Dereck Rodriguez after Eric Thames led away with a double and scored on a pair groundouts by Lorenzo Cain and Yelich.
San Francisco won a 2-1 lead against Wade Miley in the second after a walk and a trio of singles, with a run scored at a pence double -play grounder and a Steven Duggar single  neither Offensive players put the remainder of the match against one of the two starters, but Yelich opened the sixth by hauling a first-pitch homer 2-2 into the net.

Rookie Corbin Burnes replaced Miley after throwing only 74 games and recording the first two outs before Counsell went to Hader to play Crawford.
Hader plodded from the Bullfield to the Fields of the Hills to mild boils, which lasted only about 10 seconds, then completed his warm-ups with no problem, before he broke Crawford's bat on his first throw and pulled him back on a cornerstone to Shortstop.
After the Brewers failed in the seventh, Hader again took the hill and threw a goalless bottom half with a pair of strikeouts.
"The approach we've tried with Josh is, let's move forward, in our view, it's important that we love him and we support him and make his days as normal as possible," Counsell said.
"It hurts, I do not think that's going away today."
