The Milwaukee Brewers are clinging to a one-game lead in the National League Central Division standings, but their current road trip is off to a disappointing start. A 6-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday night gives the Brewers three losses in the first four games of the trip. All-Star first baseman Jesus Aguilar’s 24th home run wasn’t enough offense. Milwaukee bats were shut down by Pirate starter Jameson Taillon who went six innings, giving up just four hits and two walks, while striking out 10. Shortstop Jordy Mercer drove in four Pirate runs. Wade Miley struggled to find the strike zone in his first start after being activated from the disabled list. The lefty walked five in five innings, giving up two earned runs and taking the loss. Jeremy Jeffress will replace closer Sean Doolittle of the Washington Nationals on the N-L All-Star team. Junior Guerra goes for his fourth straight win when he starts Friday’s 6:05 P-M game at P-N-C Park.
