Milwaukee Brewers Win Series With the Pirates
Game 1, Milwaukee Brewers 3, Pittsburgh Pirates 1
Junior Guerra pitched another quality game as he went 8 2/3 innings and gave up just one run and retiring 21 of 22 of the Pirates at one point in the game. Jeremy Jeffress got the save, number 25 on the season. On the offensive side, Chris Carter hit a two-run dinger in the first.
On the potential of a complete game shutout Guerra had this to say:
“I really wanted it,” Guerra said. “I’m thankful [Brewers manager Craig Counsell] had confidence in me to get it. Unfortunately I didn’t get it. But that’s baseball for you. Sometimes it doesn’t go your way.”
