Jungmann wins debut as Brewers top Pirates

Jun 10, 2015 - 4:06 AM Pittsburgh, PA ( - Taylor Jungmann dazzled in his major- league debut, turning in seven quality innings to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday.

Jungmann (1-0), who owned a 6.37 ERA in 11 games with Triple-A Colorado Springs this season, was locked in against Pittsburgh from the first pitch. He allowed the lone run on just three hits while striking out five.

"He's here, and he did his job," said Brewers manager Craig Counsell. "He'll get the start on Sunday."

Aramis Ramirez and James Rogers each hit solo home runs and drive in two runs to back Jungmann, who outdueled veteran Francisco Liriano (3-5).

Liriano allowed three runs on five hits over eight innings for the Pirates, as he fell to 1-4 in six home starts this season.

"Couple ground balls found the hole, and that's just part of the game," said Liriano.

Both teams scored a run on solo homers in the second inning. With one away in the top of the frame, Rogers connected on a 0-2 off-speed pitch for the second long ball of his career. Starling Marte answered with his own blast to left with one out in the home half.

It remained 1-1 until Ryan Braun drew a leadoff walk in the seventh inning and advanced to third on Carlos Gomez's single. Braun came in to score the go- ahead run on a Ramirez grounder, and Rogers came through again with an RBI single to center that made it 3-1.

Jungmann and two relievers made the lead hold from there. Jungmann induced three ground-ball outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to cap his outing, Jeremy Jeffress took care of the eighth, and after Ramirez went deep to pad the cushion, Francisco Rodriguez nailed down his 12th save.
