Brewers Shut Out Pirates

by

Pittsburgh, PA (WHBL-Learfield) - Shaun Marcum and three relievers combined for a four-hitter last night, as the Milwaukee Brewers blanked the Pirates in Pittsburgh 6-nothing. Marcum took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, when ex-Brewer Lyle Overbay hit a lead-off single. The Pirates only had three other singles on the night, two by Matt Diaz. All those hits came off Marcum, who improved to 2-and-1. Milwaukee has pitched three shutouts in its first 11 games – the most in that stretch since 1990. Prince Fielder hit a three-run homer, extending his hitting streak to six games with 14 R-B-I’s during that string. Yuniesky Betancourt hit an R-B-I double for Milwaukee, which has won six-of-seven after an 0-and-4 start. Kevin Correia took the loss for Pittsburgh, falling to 2-and-1. He got tagged for six runs in six-plus innings, as he failed to become the first Pirate to win his first three starts since ex-Brewer Jeff Suppan did it in 2003. Pittsburgh has now lost three straight. The two teams will wrap up their rain-shortened two-game series tonight at P-N-C Park. Left-hander Randy Wolf will face Pittsburgh lefty Paul Mahol.
