By JOHN PERROTTO Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Rookie Aaron Ashby and three relievers combined on a four-hitter, Rowdy Tellez hit a long home run and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-0 to split a day-night doubleheader.

Ashby pitched four innings in his third career start, falling one inning shy of qualifying for his first major league win.

Kevin Newman tied a major league record with four doubles and the Pirates rolled over the Brewers 14-4 to snap their eight-game losing streak in the opener.

Newman doubled in each inning from the third through the sixth in the seven-inning game.
