The Brewers 7 stolen bases were the most by the franchise since it moved to the National League in 1998.  Carlos Gomez and Jonathan Lucroy had three hits each as the Brewers keep pace with the St. Louis Cardinals, who beat Houston 4-1 last night.

Yovani Gallardo allowed just 2-hits in 6 2/3 innings of work for his 16th win (16-8) of the season. 

That’s 5-straight wins for the Brewers, who will send Marco Estrada (3-6) to the mound against the Pirates tonight.
