Brewers complete sweep with 4-1 win over Pirates

Mike McGinnis

I didn't see this one, but it doesn't sound like I missed much. The Brewers took a 1-0 lead in the third when Martin Maldonado doubled, then came home on a bunt and a sacrifice fly. The Bucs then tied the game in the fourth on singles by Starling Marte and Jordy Mercer and a sac fly by Andrew McCutchen, but Ryan Braun led off the bottom of the inning with a double and came home on Aramis Ramirez's single.

In the sixth, the Brewers had two runners on when Charlie Morton struck out Scooter Gennett with a ball in the dirt. Tony Sanchez then completely blew the throw to first, tossing the ball into the outfield, and both runners scored. Sanchez has only played five games, but his defense has already probably cancelled out the offensive good he did in the first couple games.

Anyway, Morton's performance was reasonable (he got 11 ground-ball outs and might have escaped with only two runs if not for Sanchez's error), but the Pirates managed only four hits, all singles, as the Brewers completed a Miller Park sweep that was positively 2008-esque.
