Brewers 6, Pirates 0: Tonight's Turning Points

1) Jean Segura's RBI single in the sixth inning: +.110 WPA

2) Norichika Aoki's RBI single in the second inning: +.098 WPA

All the Brewers big hits in this game were singles because all 13 of the Brewer hits in this game were singles. This one drove home the game's first run.

3) A.J. Burnett's third inning ground out: +.083 WPA

The Pirates loaded the bases on two walks and a single in the third but Yovani Gallardo got A.J. Burnett to ground out to Rickie Weeks to erase the threat.

Segura isn't exactly known for his plate discipline but his walk here loaded the bases in the second.
