PNC Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
• Summary: Tony Armas and the Pirates four-hit the Brewers en route to a 9-0 drubbing.
• Bouncing back: Armas allowed just three singles and has now won four of his last six decisions after going 0-3 during the first half of the season.
• Unsung hero: Nate McLouth's two-run homer in the fifth proved to be the only offense Pittsburgh would need.
• Figure this: Milwaukee has lost 41 of 60 games at PNC Park since it opened in 2001, even though the Pirates have yet to have a winning season since the ballpark opened.
• Hunt for October: The Brewers fall back into a first place tie in the NL Central with the Cubs, who beat the Cardinals 12-3.
