Lohse nearly gets CG; Brewers win 9th straight

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Kyle Lohse came within one out of a complete game and the Milwaukee Brewers won their ninth straight contest, 4-1, over Pittsburgh to complete a three-game sweep at Miller Park.

Lohse (2-1) fanned nine and allowed one hit and one run without walking a batter. Will Smith struck out the lone batter he faced to pick up his first save of his career.

Carlos Gomez and Aramis Ramirez each picked up an RBI for the Brewers.

Andrew McCutchen drove in the lone run for the Pirates, who have lost four of five.

Pirates starter Charlie Morton (0-1) surrendered four runs -- two earned -- on six hits through seven frames, while walking and striking out three apiece.
