Zach Duke turned 24 on Thursday, but there was no gift waiting for him in Milwaukee, as the Brewers roughed him up for seven runs on 12 hits in four innings. The Pirates' offense managed five runs of support, powered mostly by Xavier Nady's three RBIs.
Jeff Suppan was victorious against the Pirates, his former team, allowing three runs in six innings while receiving plenty of support from his new squad. The Brewers gave him seven runs, with J.J. Hardy and Kevin Mench each contributing three hits.
