Brewers' 'fun' is Pirate misery

PITTSBURGH — Ryan Braun, Jim Edmonds and the Brewers piled up 25 hits in a 20-0 win Thursday, handing the Pirates their most-lopsided loss in their 124-year history.

"It was fun, and it was special," said Braun, who homered, doubled, singled and drove in five runs. "This game is really so much about failure, particularly as a hitter, that you rarely get a day where everyone is enjoying so much success at the same time."

Milwaukee matched a club mark for margin of victory and set a record for its biggest shutout win. According to STATS LLC, it was the fifth-most lopsided shutout in modern major-league history, which began in 1900. The Indians beat the Yankees 22-0 in 2004, and the Pirates beat the Cubs by the same score in 1975.

Prince Fielder, Edmonds and George Kottaras hit homers, and 10 Brewers had at least one RBI.
