Chad Kuhl had the Brewers puzzled through three innings on Friday night but a long rain delay ended his outing prematurely.
Nothing changed after that, though. Wade LeBlanc shut it down for three innings and three Pirates took an inning in the seventh, eighth and ninth to complete the five-man shutout.
Eric Thames went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts as his numbers continue to normalize. He’s hitting .310 with a .710 slugging percentage.
Matt Garza starts on Saturday for the Brew Crew, 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA in two starts on the year.
Gerrit Cole will be his opponent.
Cole has been consistent this season. His last five starts have all lasted at least six innings (four of them have lasted exactly six) and he hasn’t given up more than three runs (he’s given up exactly two three times).
That steadiness has his ERA at 3.50, yet he is just 1-3 because of some unearned runs and the Pirates have failed to support him.
First baseman Josh Bell homered on Friday, his fifth of the season.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction: another one goes under.
The under seems to be the word on Saturday. Garza is highly competitive and Cole should respond, too. These are two guys who seem like they will enjoy going at one-another.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 8.0 (-115)
Both pitchers will give up home runs. The key is to do it when no one is on base.
