Saturday’s game was a much more like a typical night in Milwaukee for the Pirates. Maybe it was a good thing that it wasn’t visible on TV. In fact, let’s just pretend it never even happened.

Erik Bedard had a poor outing, allowing all five runs in just 3.2 innings. He walked three and allowed five hits, and the Brewers were got him into some serious trouble in the second and fourth. Erik was able to work out of a bases-loaded/no-out jam in the second with only one run, but surrendered four more in an ugly fourth. The inning was capped off by a Brooks Conrad homer. Conrad had been hitless all season up until that point.

Garrett Jones (hitting second for some reason) homered to briefly tie the game at one, but the Pirate offense didn’t do much else against Shaun Marcum. The Bucs had just five hits, one walk, struck out nine times, and had no extra base hits besides the homer. Pedro Alvarez, Michael McKenry, and Clint Barmes all went hitless on the night, dropping their averages to .194, 185, and .167 respectively.

Chris Resop, Jared Hughes, and Doug Slaten all pitched scoreless innings out of the bullpen, although Slaten walked three in one inning.

The Pirates moved into second place before the game when the Cardinals lost, but fell back to third after dropping this game. The Reds won, so the Bucs sit four back of Cincinnati entering Sunday.

Brewers 5, Pirates 1 / Box / 2012 Record: 26-26 / Next: Sunday, at Brewers, 2:10

MVP: Jones (+.160) / LVP: Bedard (-.352) / Key play: Conrad’s HR
