Martin Maldonado knocked in Francisco with a warning track fly ball that left fielder Bryce Harper dropped — it was nevertheless ruled a double — and scored on Jeff Bianchi’s groundball single that got through the infield only because Maldonado was trying to steal third with an absurd jump off Storen.
The earned runs were the first allowed by Storen in 10 appearances, and they made Jim Henderson (3-2) the winning pitcher. Brewers starter Wily Peralta had his own shutout in the making until he left during the sixth inning with a strained left hamstring.
In other NL action, it was:

The White Sox ended a five-game skid and avoided falling a season-high 16 games below .500.
Danks (2-5) earned his first win since June 8 against Oakland, pitching seven-plus innings and allowing two runs and six hits while striking out four. Following that win against the Athletics, Danks had been winless in three starts while allowing 13 earned runs.
Addison Reed pitched a scoreless ninth for his 22nd save in 26 attempts. Jason Hammel (7-5) pitched seven innings and gave up five runs and nine hits for the Orioles.
