Pirates fall under .500 in 6-0 loss to Brewers
Question of the Day
With one out, Carlos Gomez’s sacrifice fly scored Lucroy, and Ryan Braun followed with a single, setting up Fielder’s homer on an 0-1 pitch into the bullpen in left-center.
“I was pitching well, and then I had one bad inning,” Correia said. “But a lot of times, all it takes is one bad inning to lose a game.”
The reigning NL player of the week, Fielder has at least a hit and an RBI in each of his past six games, totaling three home runs and 14 RBIs in that time.
Traditionally a pull hitter, none of the left-handed hitting first baseman’s three home runs this season have gone to right field. Twenty-two of his 194 career homers have come against the Pirates, most of any opponent.
“When he’s driving the ball the other way like that, that’s bad news for the opposing pitchers because there’s really not much they can do with him,” Roenicke said.”
Correia’s final stat line belied his impressive first five innings: Six-plus innings, six runs _ four earned _ five hits, two walks and a strikeout.
“He threw a breaking ball up in the zone that we wanted down, and he paid for it on the home run to Fielder,” Hurdle said. “Other than that, I thought he pitched well.”
NOTES: After the game, the Pirates reinstated C Chris Snyder from the disabled list and optioned C Jason Jaramillo to Triple-A. … Pittsburgh OF Jose Tabata failed to have a hit for the first time in 11 games this season. … Milwaukee is 47-17 vs. Pittsburgh since 2007, the best winning percentage for any team against a divisional opponent. … Pirates RHP Evan Meek (shoulder) pitched for the first time in seven days, a perfect ninth.
