Is the Brewers' magical run against the Pirates over? Maybe. They're now 4-7 against their rivals from Pittsburgh in 2013 following a 10-3 series-opening loss tonight.

Johnny Hellweg's major league debut was not a positive experience, as the Brewers staked him to a 3-0 first inning lead but he responded by giving up seven runs (five earned) over just 1.2 innings en route to his first loss.

I've already mentioned that the Brewers ran out to a 3-0 lead against former #1 overall pick Gerrit Cole tonight, but that was the extent of their offensive output. Rickie Weeks and Jean Segura both got hits, though, to extend their career-long hitting streaks to 12 and eleven games, respectively.

Carlos Gomez also went 2-for-4 tonight in his first appearance since leaving Sunday's game with a strained shoulder.

This series continues with a nationally televised game tomorrow night. Donovan Hand takes on Francisco Liriano at 6:15.
