Milwaukee right-hander Yovani Gallardo pitched seven shutout innings to lead the Brewers to a 4-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park last night.
Gallardo allowed 6-hits, walked only one and struck out five as he improved to 10-9 on the season. Gallardo has now allowed just two earned runs in his last 19 1/3 innings.
Aramis Ramirez clubbed his second home run of the series in the 4th inning.
Reliever Brandon Kintzler worked the final two innings to preserve the victory and the shutout, which was the 12th of the season for the Brewers.
The Brewers return home to host the Angels tonight. Wily Peralta (8-13, 4.51) pitches for the Brewers. The Angels counter with Jered Weaver (8-7, 3.46).
