Braun scored on A-Ram's Baltimore chop, and Rogers added a cherry on top with an RBI single to put the Brewers up 3-1. Ramirez delivered the coup d' grace with a ninth inning solo shot off Jared Hughes.
Frankie went eight innings, giving up three runs on five hits and a walk with six Ks, tossing 105 pitches.The Pirates, after all their road fireworks, fizzled at home again, collecting just four hits and unable to solve Jungmann's funky across the body delivery.. Charlie Morton will try to salvage a game of the set against Kyle Lohse tomorrow night.
- Not a surprise, but the only Buc to reach base twice tonight was Fran Cervelli - he was plunked in the back and walked. Jordy's seven game hitting streak was snapped with an 0-for-3 showing.
- Taylor Jungmann will remember his first MLB game - he tossed a three hitter over seven frames, and got the first whiff of his career in the first inning, catching none other than Cutch looking.
- Big John Holdzkom is back from the DL and on Indy's active roster. He's had a rough year at Indy, carrying over his control issues from spring camp. The rest must have done him some good; he struck out the side in his appearance tonight.
