MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Yuniesky Betancourt hit a grand slam, and Carlos Gomez and Norichika Aoki also homered as the Milwaukee Brewers used an eight-run third inning to beat Barry Zito and the San Francisco Giants 10-8 on Tuesday night.

Betancourt's fifth career grand slam highlighted the seven-hit inning that chased Zito. Rickie Weeks doubled home two runs and Jonathan Lucroy added a two-run single as the Brewers sent 12 batters to the plate. Zito faced 11 of them.

Zito (2-1) had opened the season with consecutive scoreless seven-inning games. He struck out five and walked two in 2 2-3 innings and his 0.00 ERA ballooned to 4.86 ERA.

Brandon Kintzler (2-0) got the win in relief for the Brewers.
