The Milwaukee Brewers now own a 9 game winning streak, finishing off their third straight series sweep, this one at Miller Park, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-1 Sunday afternoon. Kyle Lohse missed a complete game victory by one out, working eight and two thirds, giving up just four hits. At one point, he retired 14 consecutive batters, striking out five in a row over the 7th and 8th innings. With the game tied at one, the Brewers took the lead for good in the bottom of the fourth when Ryan Braun doubled and Aramis Ramirez drove him in with a single. The Brewers picked up two unearned insurance runs in the 6th against Pirates starter Charlie Morton. With runners on second and third, Morton struck out Scooter Gennett swinging but the ball got away from Tony Sanchez. His throw sailed down the right field line allowing two runners in. Will Smith recorded the final out. The Brewers are off to their best start since team streak in 1987 which opened with 13 consecutive victories. Milwaukee (10-2) has the best record in baseball and the Brewers will resume the home stand Monday welcoming the St. Louis Cardinals to Miller Park for a three game set.
