The Pittsburgh Pirates came to Milwaukee having lost nine-straight games at Miller Park. They left on Sunday with a four-game winning streak after knocking off the Brewers 3-1.
Chase Anderson tossed five innings of shutout ball, then surrendered solo home runs in the sixth to John Jaso and Gregory Polanco. Starling Marte added another solo home run in the eighth for the Pirates to close out the win.
The last time the Pirates swept the Brewers in Milwaukee was back in 2004 (3-game sweep).
The Brewers only run came on a Jonathan Villar solo home run. They managed just five hits against Pirates starter Ivan Nova and three relievers.
The home runs allowed by Anderson were the 24th and 25th of the season, which is the most on the Brewers pitching staff. Jimmy Nelson is next with 19.
Anderson allowed five hits and a walk while striking out five. He fell to 7-11.
Pittsburgh relievers allowed just two earned runs over 16 1/3 innings in the series.
The Brewers home stand continues tonight when they open a series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
