Powerful Pirates Break Game Open Late

W: Volquez (1-0) 1.71 ERA

L: Wooten (0-1) 27.00 ERA

The number one bullpen in baseball suffered its first laps of the year in the 11-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday. It was the first loss on the road this season for the Milwaukee Brewers who are now 11-5 on the season.

It was a pitchers dual for the first seven innings between Yovani Gallardo and Edinson Volquez. Gallardo left after going six innings being chased with a high pitch count. Gallardo picked up a no-decision and Volquez picked up the win pitching into the seventh inning.

Gallardo finished giving up three hits, two runs and recorded six strikeouts for his fourth consecutive quality start.

In the bottom of the seventh inning Rob Wooten, called up when Brandon Kintzler went on the disabled list, came on in relief and gave up three runs. The big blast came when pinch hitter Josh Harrison hit a two-run home run to break the 2-2 tie. From that point on, the Pirates never looked back. Zach Duke came on in relief of Wooten and was able to get the Brewers out of the jam.

In the eighth inning, the Pirates busted the game open batting around and scoring six runs all off reliever Wei-Chung Wang. Wang gave up two home runs in his second appearance of the season.

Offensively, the Brewers got on the scoreboard first when Aramis Ramirez singled home Carlos Gomez in the opening frame to take 1-0 lead. After a two-run home run by Andrew McCutchen in the bottom of the first, the Pirates took the lead until Jonathan Lucroy tied the game on a run scoring single that scored Ryan Braun in the third inning. That would be the only offense the Brewers could muster ending the game being retired 24 in a row.

Scooter Gennett and Jonathan Lucroy each had two hits in the loss.

Game two of the series is tonight when Kyle Lohse will rematch against Charlie Morton. Lohse pitched a near complete game last time for his second win of the season. First pitch is scheduled for 6:05PM.
