The Pittsburgh Pirates lost to the Milwaukee Brewers last night by a score of 9-1.
Derek Holland gave up eight earned runs over five innings. Although he struck out eight batters, he walked four and gave up three home runs to Jedd Gyorko, Ryan Braun, and Jacob Nottingham.
After Holland’s outing, Nick Mears, Sam Howard, and Dovydas Nerverauskas combined to give up one run over three innings. At that point though, the game was well out of hand.
The Pirates offense was quiet tonight as they tallied just four hits. Their only run came in the seventh inning when JT Riddle hit a home run to break the shutout.
The Pirates are now 9-20 on the season.
Later tonight, JT Brubaker will take the mound and oppose Brett Anderson. First pitch is 7:10.
