Anderson, Pirates win 2-0 to stop Brewers’ 11-game run
PITTSBURGH (AP) – Tyler Anderson pitched seven sparkling innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates ended Milwaukee’s 11-game winning streak with a 2-0 victory over the Brewers.
Kevin Newman homered and Wilmer Difo had an RBI double as the Pirates stopped a six-game slide. Milwaukee managed just three hits off Anderson, who broke a personal five-game skid.
The left-hander struck out six and walked two while throwing 93 pitches.
Milwaukee’s winning streak was the second-longest in franchise history.
The Brewers won their first 13 games in 1987.
David Bednar and Richard Rodriguez finished the four-hitter with one inning apiece.
Rodriguez earned his 11th save in 13 opportunities by completing the Pirates’ third shutout of the season.
