The Milwaukee Brewers swept the Pittsburgh Pirates in their 3-game series with a 1-0 win at Miller Park this afternoon. It was all Yovani Gallardo, who homered for the Brewers only run on offense and pitched 8-scoreless innings of 2-hit ball for his 3rd win (3-1) of the season.
The Brewers have now won 3-straight, 15 in-a-row against the Pirates and 18-straight against Pittsburgh at Miller Park. Carlos Villanueva worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his second save.
After a slow start this season (4-9), the Brewers have gone 7-1 in their last 8 games to move past the .500 mark (11-10) for the first time this season.
