Final: Brewers 6, Pirates 0
The Brewers were eight for eight in stolen base attempts, including three by Ryan Braun as they ran their way to a 6-0 shutout victory in game one of a pivotal three game series.
A.J. Burnett started for the Pirates and allowed just two runs over six innings, but Milwaukee’s Yovani Gallardo was better, pitching 6 2/3 scoreless innings before giving way to his bullpen.
Neil Walker was 2 for 4, which accounted for all but one of the Pirates hits.
