Milwaukee Brewers Highlights
Josh Johnson ends personal skid, leads Marlins to victory
After having a rough start this season, Josh Johnson ended his career-worst four-game slide and pitched a great game for the Miami Marlins, leading them over the Milwaukee Brewers 6-2.
On Thursday, Johnson finally picked up steam as he pitched a solid seven innings by using a combination of curveballs and fastballs right when it was needed blanking out several opponents.
Johnson allowed two runs and struck out seven. Greg Dobbs had two runs for Miami, who had 12 hits, three of them by Donovan Solano.
A day after pulling to within 6.5 games of the second NL wild-card slot, the Brewers found themselves losing for just the fourth time in 17 games, which makes it even more important for them to win in the succeeding games.
The Brewers had an average of 7.7 runs in the last seven games but were unable to do anything about Johnson. They pulled to 4-2 in the seventh on a sacrifice by Norichika Aoki but were unable to move forward from there.
Gallardo strikes out a career high to sink Pirates
With the team headed into a week of important games against divisional rivals, Yovani Gallardo gave delivered for the Milwaukee Brewers what they needed most, a win.
Gallardo had a career-high 14 strikeouts in seven innings on Sunday as the Brewers used four runs in the sixth to defeat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-1. He struck out two in every inning except in the sixth where he fanned out just one and the side during the seventh.
But Gallardo also gave up four hits including a home run by Andrew McCutchen in the fourth.
McCutchen had three of the Pirates’ five hits, he got his 21st homer and fifth in the past four games as well as two singles. In the last twelve games, he is batting .560 and has seven home runs, 19 runs scored and 16 RBIs, leading the major league with an average of .371
A.J. Burnett had his career-high nine-game winning streak ended as he allowed four runs and nine hits and struck out seven in seven innings.
