A day after erupting for 12 runs, the Pittsburgh Pirates’ offense was silenced in a 9-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at American Family Field on Wednesday night. 

Brewers starter Tobias Myers held the Pirates (44-48) to one run through the first six innings of his outing. 

The Pirates’ first hit of the game came on a Bryan Reynolds leadoff single in the fourth inning. After that, Myers retired nine batters in a row.

In the top of the seventh inning, Rowdy Tellez led off with a double and Joshua Palacios singled the other way to give the Pirates runners on the corners with one out, but Ke’Bryan Hayes bounced into an inning-ending double play. 

Myers (6-3) matched a career-high eight innings and allowed three hits. He walked one batter and struck out six. 

The Brewers (54-39) scored four runs against Martín Pérez in his 4.2 innings and all four came with two outs. 

In the bottom of the first, Pérez came within inches of a 1-2-3 innings but Christian Yelich barely beat out an infield single. Yelich came around to score on a Willy Adames double and Adames scored on a Sal Frelick single to left.

With two outs in the fourth, William Contreras doubled off the base of the wall to put Milwaukee ahead 4-0. 

In the bottom of the fifth, Rhys Hoskins connected on a long solo home run to left field to tack on another run. 

Pérez (1-5) allowed nine hits, walked three and struck out five. 

Andrew Monasterio put the Brewers ahead 6-0 in the seventh inning with an RBI-single against Brent Honeywell Jr. Honeywell allowed one run in 2.1 innings out of the bullpen for the Pirates.

Adames gave the Brewers three more runs in the bottom of the eighth with a three-run homer of of Ryder Ryan.

The Brewers outhit the Pirates 14-4.
