Brewers Shut Out Pirates

by

One of the big additions to the Milwaukee Brewers pitching staff put together his best start in leading the Crew to a 6-0 shutout victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates before a sparse crowd of 8755 at PNC Park.   Shaun Marcum improved to 2-1 by throwing 7 shutout innings, allowing only 4 hits, all singles, striking our four and walking one.  The bullpen sent out three relievers who pitched two hitless innings.  Milwaukee needed the strong arms because Pittsburgh starter Kevin Correia was just as sharp, holding the Brewers hitless through five innins.  In the 6th, Milwaukee pushed across a run and with two outs, Prince Fielder laced a three run home run over the center field wall to break the game open. The Brewers added two more runs in the 8th including pinch runner Nyjer Morgan's dash from first on a Yuienesky Betancourt double.  Moran crashed into Ryan Doumit at the plate to score Milwaukee's fifth run. It was the Brewers major league leading third shutout of the year.  Fielder, the reigning National League Player of the Week is now hitting .385 with homers in three of his last four games and he has driven in 14.  After an 0-4 start, the Brewers have won 6 out of 7 to move into second place in the Central Division, a game and a half behind Cincinnati.  Randy Wolf faces Paul Mahalom in the second and final game of the series Thursday night.
