Brewers 3, Pirates 1

MILWAUKEE — Junior Guerra limited Pittsburgh to four hits over 8⅔ strong innings and Chris Carter hit a two-run home run to lead the Brewers. The Pirates managed Andrew McCutchen's RBI groundout off Guerra, who departed with two on and two outs in the ninth. Jeremy Jeffress got Jung Ho Kang to ground out to third base on one pitch to record his 25th save in 26 chances. Guerra's scoreless streak was snapped at 20 innings. He struck out five and walked one. During one stretch, the 31-year-old rookie retired 12 straight Pirates. Making just his second major-league start, Pirates rookie Steven Brault gave up three runs and seven hits over six.
