Snell shuts down Braun

Snell shuts down Braun
? Milwaukee Brewers All-Star outfielder Ryan Braun, who publicly griped about being plunked by Pirates pitcher Jeff Karstens in the series opener, didn't fare well against Pirates starter Ian Snell on Wednesday. Snell became the first pitcher to strikeout Braun three times in one game since the Arizona Diamondbacks' Brandon Webb accomplished the feat Aug. 22, 2007. Braun has been outspoken in recent days, saying that Karstens hit him intentionally in a post-home run at-bat Monday. "We've been hearing all types of mess," Snell said of Braun. "I know he doesn't mean anything by it. He's a great person. Maybe he was a little fired up. But you shouldn't say stuff like that. Keep it to yourself. Don't go out in the papers with it. I've been there myself. It's not good, because karma comes back and bites you right in the butt."

? Pirates center fielder Nate McLouth is "100 percent" certain he will play in Friday's game against the Cincinnati Reds -- provided he doesn't have a setback with his strained right oblique. McLouth, who's missed the past six games, had a second consecutive day of activity yesterday, hitting off a tee at Miller Park. "I can't wait," McLouth said

? The Pirates will open their 46-acre, state-of-the-art Latin American headquarters today in the Dominican Republic. Attendees will range from virtually every top Pirates front office executive to the president of the Dominican Republic. The Pirates are one of only seven major-league teams with its own facility in the Dominican.

? The Pirates are off today before returning to play the Reds in a three-game series at PNC Park. Zach Duke (3-1) is scheduled to face Bronson Arroyo (3-1, 6.48) in the opener Friday.


21 -- Batters walked by Pirates pitchers in 24 innings against the Brewers this week.
