It’s way early, but the Brewers sure look good.
Star center fielder Carlos Gomez hit his fourth home run of the season, staff ace Yovani Gallardo put together his third straight quality start, and closer Francisco Rodriguez earned his fourth save in as many chances as the Brew Crew topped the Pirates 3-2 on Saturday night at a sold-out Miller Park.
It was the eighth consecutive win for the Brewers, who now boast a three-game lead over the Bucs and Cardinals in the National League Central standings.
Milwaukee currently owns the best record and run differential (+25) in the major leagues. Kyle Lohse will try to keep it rolling Sunday.
