The Milwaukee Brewers (7-6) have no answers on offense in a 6-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates (6-8).
Adrian Houser had a rough outing, only last 4 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk.
Brent Suter replaced Houser and went 1 2/3 innings, allowing one run on two hits and a walk.
After a sensational rookie season in 2020, Devin Williams has struggled mightily so far in 2021. Tonight he went one inning and allowed two runs.
Milwaukee’s offense wasn’t any better. They left nine runners on base tonight and only had five hits.
If there is a silver lining….at least Jace Peterson got on the board with his first hit of the season. Hopefully that’ll get him going a little bit.
The Brewers and Pirates will play game two of the three-game series tomorrow, April 17. First pitch is set for 6:10 PM (Central Time).
Brett Anderson (1-1, 4.50 ERA) will get the start for Milwaukee. Trevor Cahill (0-1, 8.00 ERA) will get the start for Pittsburgh.
