Notes:

-The Brewers lost in Marco Estrada's last start but he still was pretty good. He went 6.1 innings against the Padres and gave up five hits and only one earned run.

-Last season Estrada made three starts against the Pirates and posted a 1.83 ERA in 19.2 innings. He struck out 25 and only walked three while surrendering only four runs and 13 hits.

-James McDonald has been pretty up and down this season and hopefully he bounces back after a below after outing the last time out against the Phillies. In his last start he went five innings and gave up three runs on five hits and struck out four.

-Before the game the Pirates said they had released Jonathan Sanchez. He was awful. In four starts (five appearances) here was his line: 13.2 innings, 25 hits, 18 runs, eight walks, 15 strikeouts. 11.85 ERA. Yikes.

-Pirates called up Bryan Morris to take the place of Sanchez.
