Brewers-Pirates Preview

(AP) -- The high-powered offense that was expected to be a strength for Pittsburgh has eluded the Pirates. That is, except when they play the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Pirates look to beat the Brewers for a fourth time in five tries and send Kyle Lohse to a third loss in as many starts to open a season for the first time in his 15-year career on Saturday night.

After totaling five hits in back-to-back shutout losses to Detroit, Pittsburgh (4-6) had 11 in Friday's 6-3 home win over Milwaukee. Gregory Polanco had three hits and Starling Marte went 2 for 4 with a two-run homer. Marte was 0 for 11 with six strikeouts in his previous three games.
