Brewers 3, Pirates 1
Starter Dave Bush improved to 3-6 on the road with a win Friday night. (Gene J. Puskar/AP)
After struggling for much of the season on the road, starter Dave Bush was solid, limiting the Pirates to just one run in 6 2/3 innings. Ryan Braun gave Bush all the offense he would need with a three-run homer in the first, as the Brewers improved to 9-1 against the Pirates this year.
