"He couldn't get loose," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "Little bit of a cuff irritation, but that should be day to day. He's got a little weakness there and a little irritation. I don't think he'll have to be shut down."

Alfredo Figaro came on, and immediately gave up a single to Jose Tabata and a three-run home run to Neil Walker, extending the Pirates' lead to 5-1. One of the three runs was credited to Gorzelanny.
