Brewers Beat Bucs Again, Win 5-2 In Milwaukee

May 14, 2014

The Pittsburgh Pirates gave young ace Gerrit Cole (3-3) very little run production Tuesday night, losing 5-2 to the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

In their first matchup since a benches-clearing brawl on Easter Sunday resulted in several suspensions, the Pirates were outhit 13-to-9.  Jonathan Lucroy recorded two hits and two RBI’s for the Brewers (25-14), while Jean Segura, Mark Reynolds and Rickie Weeks also drove in runs.

Neil Walker homered for the Pirates (16-22), and Gaby Sanchez drove in a run with a pinch-hit double.  Jose Tabata went 3-for-4, while Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer contributed two hits apiece.

Cole lasted five-and-two-thirds innings, allowed three runs and seven hits, struck out six batters and walked three.  Brewers starter Marco Estrada (3-1) threw 112 pitches over six innings, but earned the win.  Francisco Rodriguez picked up his 16th save in 17 opportunities.

The only echo to the Easter melee came when Cole hit Carlos Gomez with a change-up pitch.  Gomez reacted only with a smile.

In the second game of a three-game series on Wednesday night, the Pirates are scheduled to start Francisco Liriano (0-3) against Milwaukee’s Wily Peralta (4-2).
