It was all about the home runs today. Unfortunately, most of those won't on the Brewers side.

All the offense for both teams today came from home runs. The Pirates hit four home runs to score five runs, three of those coming off of Brewers starter Mike Fiers. On the other side, the Brewers only managed two home runs (both from Carlos Gomez) to account for their offense, and neither of those came until after starter Jeff Locke was out of the game.

Mike Fiers was pressed into duty as a starter today, and his audition to stay in the rotation didn't go very well. He allowed four runs on five hits, and three of those hits were home runs. He didn't walk anyone, and struck out five. Jeff Locke was strong on the other side, allowing a total of three hits and three walks, while striking out seven.

The Brewers have another chance to actually win a series tomorrow afternoon. Yovani Gallardo starts for the Brewers, and Wandy Rodriguez starts for the Pirates. First pitch is at 1:10 pm.
