Road trip ends with a sweep thanks to Hiura

Devin Williams makes his debut

The Milwaukee Brewers completed their nine-game road trip on a positive note with a sweep against the Pittsburgh Pirates.  

Drew Pomeranz made his first start with the Brewers on what would be a bullpen night.  In three innings, Pomeranz struck out three batters and only allowed one earned run on a home run to Jacob Stallings.

Keston Hiura was the player of the night, going 3-4 with two home runs and a double, driving in three runs too. 

Eric Thames got the start at first base and hit ahead of Ryan Braun in the batting order.  Thames would break the game open in the third inning by driving in two runs on a single.

After taking a foul ball off of his knee last night, Lorenzo Cain was only available for a pinch-hit role.  He ended up making the most of it by driving in two runs in the sixth inning as well.

Former 2013 second-round pick, Devin Williams made his MLB debut in the bottom of the sixth inning.  Williams recorded his first big league strikeout against the first batter he faced, Bryan Reynolds.  Williams ended his debut after 1 2/3 of an inning with three strikeouts, only allowing two unearned runs on three hits.  


The Brewers will return to Miller Park on Friday to begin a three-game series against the Texas Rangers.
