Yovani Gallardo was stellar early in a bid for his fourth win this season, but Wandy Rodriguez made things tough for the Brewers' batters as well. The Pittsburgh Pirates broke through for two runs in the sixth inning to chase Gallardo and eventually earn the 3-1 win. Pittsburgh added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth to seal Milwaukee’s fate.
Rickie Weeks jump-started the Brewers offense in the seventh inning with a solo home run to left field. It was Weeks' third homer of the season.
Gallardo was charged with two runs through six innings on the mound.
