Taylor Jungmann not only held off the Pirates on Tuesday night and winning his Major League debut, the performance will lead to a second start on Sunday against the Washington Nationals at Miller Park.
Jungmann held the Pirates to a run on three hits in seven innings to pitch the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.
The 2011 first-round draft pick walked one and struck out five in his debut. He retired 13 hitters in a row during one stretch.
The Brewers got home runs from Jason Rogers and Aramis Ramirez in the victory.
The Pirates only run came on Starling Marte’s home run off of Jungmann in the second.
Francisco Rodriguez worked the 9th inning for his 12th save in 12 tries this season.
The Brewers send Kyle Lohse (3-6, 6.59 ERA) to the mound in the series finale tonight. He’ll face Charlie Morton (3-0, 2.84) of the Pirates. The Brewers are in search of their first series sweep of the season.
