Milwaukee had a brief 1-0 lead in the first inning, but it quickly disappeared as the Pittsburgh Pirates pounded the Brewers for a dozen runs and 17 hits en route to a 12-2 win on Saturday evening.
Adrian Houser, Freddy Peralta, and Burch Smith all gave up multiple runs as the Brewers fell behind quickly and never recovered.
During the game, a collision between Orlando Arcia and Keston Hiura resulted in Arcia being carted off the field, and according to manager Craig Counsell, trainers are evaluating Arcia's collarbone.
The series finale, and final game before the All-Star break, is Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh.
