Brandon Woodruff pitched six-and-two-third innings and struck out ten batters as the Brewers shut out the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-0 in the series finale.
Ben Gamel hit a two-run homer in the third inning and Keston Hiura had a solo shot in sixth to back Woodruff’s one-hit performance for the Crew.
Milwaukee relievers David Phelps, Devin Williams and Josh Hader limited the Pirates to a lone single. Hader picked up his first save.
Pittsburgh starter Joe Musgrove allowed three runs on four hits over five-and-two-thirds innings for the loss.
