Braden Looper got just enough run support and he gave the Brewers seven innings of four hit ball as the Brewers were able to beat the Pirates by a 2-0 score. For Looper this win showed how far he has come as a pitcher and now maybe one of the better performers the Brewers have had on the mound in recent weeks.
Prince Fielder and Craig Counsell each had very good hitting games to help power the Brewers offense. Both players have been on fire of late and this game was just another indication of that. Trevor Hoffman picked up his 22nd save in the process as well. The Brewers needed this win and hopefully they can keep winning for a change instead of winning one then losing two in a row it seems.
