MILWAUKEE — Michael Morse and Pablo Sandoval each drove in three runs to lead the San Francisco Giants to a 7-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night.

Ryan Vogelsong (7-8) gave up one run on seven hits in six innings for the Giants to win consecutive starts for the first time since May.

On Friday, Vogelsong allowed two hits in a complete game against the Mets.

Milwaukee’s Yovani Gallardo (6-6) had a streak of 16⅔-innings without giving up a run snapped in the first when he allowed three of them.

Gallardo, a right-hander, gave up four runs on nine hits and walked four in four innings. His only shorter outing this season was May 20 at Atlanta when he left after 3⅓-innings with an ankle injury.

Morse hadn’t had more than one RBI in a game since June 13 against Colorado, and he only had eight RBIs in his previous 50 games.

But after a run-scoring single by Sandoval in the first, Morse’s snapped a 1-for-11 skid with a two-out, two-run single to center for a 3-0 lead.

In the fourth, his single to right with two outs gave San Francisco a 4-1 lead.

The last time Morse had three RBI was May 29 for the Giants, who won for the fifth time in the last seven games.

Sandoval smashed a two-run homer to left for a 7-3 lead in the eighth, one day after the third baseman hit a three-run shot. Carlos Gomez homered in the first for Milwaukee, Aramis Ramirez added a two-run single in the seventh and Khris Davis hit a solo homer in the ninth, but the Brewers fell to 3-6 in their last nine games
