San Francisco’s six pitchers joined four hitters to accelerate the visiting Giants to a 5-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday night, undermining Julio Tehran’s return to the major leagues.

Tehran (0-1), who signed earlier in the day, allowed one round of four hits in five innings in his first start at the majors since April 2021, when he was with Detroit.

The Giants added four runs in the eighth inning from Tyson Miller to take a 5-0 lead

Michael Conforto opened the eighth with his 11th homer, a 424-foot shot down the middle to make it 2-0. Mike Yastrzemski picked and Blake Sabol bowled with two outs. Casey Schmitt followed with a double run, and Patrick Bailey added an RBI double.

Conforto hit the fifth time, adding three singles and a walk.

Jakob Junis (3-2), Giants third pitcher, allows two hits in 2 1/3 innings for win

Tehran, an All-Star with Atlanta in 2014 and 2016, split last season between the independents and the Mexican League. He was 4-2 with a 5.63 ERA in eight starts this season with Triple-A affiliate San Diego in El Paso before opting out of his contract Monday.

The Giants ended scoreless with the only run off of Tehran in the fifth set. Schmitt chose with one out, stole his second and went home with a LaMonte Wade Jr. single.

The Brewers put two players against Junis in the bottom half when Rowdy Tellez picked one and Joey Wiemer walked. Sean Manaea felt relieved and attacked Tyrone Taylor who pinch-hittered

Scott Alexander, Taylor Rogers and Junis kept the Brewers from bottom until Willy Adames’ two-out double in the fourth. After Christian Yelich was fouled on purpose, Junis ended the threat by dropping Adames for second

Taylor doubled in eighth and Yelich in ninth for another two Milwaukee hits.
