Pirates Pummeled By Brewers, 11-4

PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) — The Pirates managed just 11 hits in their 11-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday night.

Ross Ohlendorf, returning for the first time since April, lasted five innings, giving up seven runs – four earned – and striking out three.

Milwaukee took a 7-0 lead in the second inning which included RBIs from Jonathan Lucroy, Marco Estrada, Nyjer Morgan and Ryan Braun, who drove in two runs.
A throwing error by Ryan Doumit allowed a run to score.

Casey McGehee also had a two-run homer in the inning – his 10th of the season.

The Pirates made it 7-1 when Xavier Paul batted in Ronny Cedeno on a single fly ball in the third. Josh Harrison hit his first major league homer in the fifth to make it 7-2.

The Brewers added two runs after Prince Fielder’s RBI double in the sixth and McGehee’s sacrifice fly in the eighth.

Neil Walker and Garrett Jones each drove in a run at the bottom of the eighth.

Marco Estrada allowed two runs over seven innings, beating the Pirates for the second time in 11 days.

The Brewers (78-53) surpassed last season’s win total and topped Pittsburgh for the 14th time in the past 15 meetings.

    If you want to witness some good baseball, you should watch the Little League World Series. There is a team from PA that is competing really well. They played Georgia last night, and won. It was amazing to see the effort of these boys, who truly take the game of baseball seriously. These guys truly give their all, and guess what, they aren’t getting paid anything!

      Its pretty pathetic when a PROFESSIONAL baseball team (Pirates) are being shown up by a group of kids. These kids make the Pirates look like kids!! The Pirates should all be very ashamed and embarrassed.
