Brewers beat Pirates 6-0 for first win of season

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) - - Jimmy Nelson struck out a career-high nine in seven innings, Jean Segura hit a two-run homer and the Milwaukee Brewers became the last team in the majors to win this season by beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-0 on Saturday.

Hector Gomez added a two-run single for Milwaukee, which stopped a four-game losing streak by tagging Vance Worley (0-1) for six runs and seven hits in 6 1-3 innings.

Pittsburgh played without All-Star outfielder Andrew McCutchen, who sat out as a precaution with left knee soreness.

Pitching was just as much of a problem for Pittsburgh.

Offseason acquisition Adam Lind had his ninth hit in his fifth game with his new team, tying a club record. Khris Davis led off the fourth with a double that set up Segura's deep homer to left-center for a 5-0 lead.

Nelson (1-0) allowed two hits, and the sinkerballer benefited from two double plays.
