Just like last season, the Milwaukee Brewers ended the first half on a poor note at PNC Park. Milwaukee lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5 today. The Crew lost the final two games of the series and five of their last six. They enter the All-Star break with a 47-44 record.
Junior Guerra gave up a three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning to Bryan Reynolds which proved to be the difference in the game.
Chase Anderson allowed two earned runs on five hits in his four innings of work.
Offensively, Jesus Aguilar hit two home runs and Keston Hiura homered once. Aguilar’s second home run tied the game at 3-3 in the top of the seventh.
Kevin Kramer led off the bottom of the seventh with a walk, Adam Frazier followed with a single, followed by the Reynolds three-run dinger, thanks to Guerra.
The Brewers don’t play again until they host the San Francisco Giants on Friday at Miller Park.
The Brewers have been bailed out by the Cubs poor play as well. The Cubs (47-43) lead the Brewers (47-44) by a half game for first place in the National League Central Division.
