Shaun Marcum pitched seven shutout innings to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 6-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night. Marcum was perfect through four innings and kept the Pirates off-balance with his change-up, allowing only four singles with four strikeouts and a walk.
Marcum lowered his ERA to 2.55 through three starts.
Zach Braddock, Kameron Loe and Mitch Stetter finished up for the Brewers 3rd shutout of the season. Pittsburgh starter Kevin Correia took a no-hitter into the sixth, but his outing quickly unraveled from there, including Prince Fielder’s towering home run, his 3rd in the last 4 games.
Tuesday’s rained out game in Pittsburgh has been rescheduled as part of a standard doubleheader, on August 22nd at PNC Park. First pitch is set for 4:05 pm.
