This Weekend's Results

Pirates 6, Brewers 2

The Brewers fell to 0-4 on Friday after they took a 6-2 loss to the Pirates. Mike Fiers didn't have a good day, allowing five runs in five innings, allowing seven hits and a walk. he did have eight strikeouts though. Adam Lind provided the only runs of the game with an RBI single in the fourth inning, and Scooter Gennett got himself ejected in the eighth after a frustrating day.

Brewers 6, Pirates 0

It took five games into the season, but the Brewers finally got a win on Friday. They won behind Jimmy Nelson, who pitched seven shutout innings and only allowed two hits and two walks, while also striking out nine. For the offense, it was Hector Gomez who sparked them, hitting an RBI double in the second inning and added another double later. Jean Segura also added a home run in the game.

Pirates 10, Brewers 2

The momentum from Saturday didn't last. Carlos Gomez hit a two-run home to account for all of the offense in this game. The Brewers did hold a 2-1 lead for a few innings, but an Andrew McCutchen home run put the Pirates up 4-2, and they blew it wide open by scoring six unearned runs in the ninth inning.
