The Pittsburgh Pirates were out hit by the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday night, but on the part on the scoreboard that mattered the Pirates were ahead 8-4 at the end of the game. Nice win for the Pirates as they avoided the three game sweep.
Jason Bay hit a two run home run and Xavier Nady had a solo home run to lead the Pirates at the plate. Bay and Chris Gomez both had two rbi in the game to lead the team. Nady, Raul Chavez, and Tom Gorzelanny all had a rbi in the game.
Gorzelanny ended up getting the win and improving to 4-4 on the season. He tossed five innings and allowed eight hits but only two runs. Damaso Marte and John Grabow both gave up one run in relief.
