The Milwaukee Brewers (37-27) take down the Pittsburgh Pirates (23-40) this afternoon, 7-4, at American Family Field.

Trevor Richards (1-0) picked up the win after throwing two scoreless innings in relief of Burnes.
Josh Hader notched his 16th save of the season, and surprisingly didn’t strikeout a hitter.

Milwaukee is 16-4 in the last 20 games and 13-2 over the last 15 games to get to the season-high 10 games over .500 at 37-27.
