The Milwaukee Brewers ran their win streak to 3-games, rolling to an 8-0 shutout win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night.
The Brewers improved to 7-7 as Yovani Gallardo tossed 5 shutout innings, striking out 10. Nine of the first 11 Pittsburgh batters retired by Gallardo, came via the strikeout. Gallardo said luckily he was able to overcome a high pitch count to win.
Ryan Braun, Rickie Weeks and pinch-hitter Jody Gerut all homered for the Brewers. Milwaukee goes for the sweep today, wrapping up a 3-city, 9-game road trip.
