Pirates win 2-0 to stop Brewers' 11-game run

By JOHN PERROTTO Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Tyler Anderson pitched seven sparkling innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates ended Milwaukee's 11-game winning streak with a 2-0 victory over the Brewers.

Kevin Newman homered and Wilmer Difo had an RBI double as the Pirates stopped a six-game slide.

Milwaukee managed just three hits off Anderson, who broke a personal five-game skid.

The left-hander struck out six and walked two while throwing 93 pitches.

Milwaukee's winning streak was the second-longest in franchise history.

The Brewers won their first 13 games in 1987.

David Bednar and Richard Rodriguez finished the four-hitter with one inning apiece.

Rodriguez earned his 11th save in 13 opportunities by completing the Pirates' third shutout of the season.
