• The Pirates took a season-best 57-inning errorless streak into Wednesday's game. Overall, the Pirates have the fourth-most errors in the National League (90). The Brewers have the most (98).

• Going into Wednesday's game, Andrew McCutchen was hitting .529 with eight multi-hit games in his past 10 home games. Through Tuesday the Pirates are 25-4 when McCutchen gets two or more hits at PNC Park. The center fielder was 14 for 35 (.400) in his past eight games against Milwaukee and entered the night one home run shy of 100 in his career.

The Buzz

Outfielder Marlon Byrd admitted that while he'd seen Pirates players flash the Zoltan “Z” after getting a hit, he was going to need one of his new teammates to show him how it's done.

“Someone's going to have to teach me,” he said. “I plan on being on base at some point while I'm here, so I'll learn at some point.”
