The Milwaukee Brewers continue to struggle to score runs, but they have their pitching staff to thank after yet another dominating performance.
Chase Anderson tossed six-innings of 5-hit, shutout ball to lead the Brewers to a 1-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park on Tuesday night. Domingo Santana homered in the fourth inning and the Brewers made it stand up.
Anderson struck out eight over his six innings. Anthony Swarzak worked the 7th and 8th and Corey Knebel came on in the 9th for his 37th save of the season.
