Brewers’ offense shows up in win over Pirates

The Milwaukee Brewers didn’t figure to score too many runs heading into yesterday’s matchup against Francisco Liriano and the division leading Pittsburgh Pirates.

Liriano entered the game with a 15-6 record and a 2.57 earned run average.  But he served up seven runs and seven hits in just three innings as the Brewers went on to a 9-3 win over the Pirates.

Wily Peralta struggled at times as well, but when he needed a big pitch, he got it.  Peralta made it through six innings, allowing nine hits and three runs, earning his 10th victory (10-14) of the season.

The Brewers are off today.  They’ll open a weekend series in Chicago against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.
