Manny Pina homered twice, Rowdy Tellez also went deep and the visiting Milwaukee Brewers completed a three-game series sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates with a 12-0 win on Thursday.

Brewers right-hander Freddy Peralta (8-3) pitched six innings and combined with relievers Miguel Sanchez, Devin Williams and Jandel Gustave for a three-hit shutout.

Peralta struck out five and allowed three baserunners -- a walk to Ben Gamel in the second, a base hit by Gamel in the fourth and a single by John Nogowski in the sixth.

Tellez, Tyrone Taylor and Pablo Reyes each added an RBI double while Lorenzo Cain had a two-run single for the Brewers, who put together a five-run sixth and won for the fifth time in six games.

The Pirates have lost four straight and eight of 10.

Pittsburgh starter Chad Kuhl (3-6) pitched 5 1/3 innings, allowing three runs and six hits with one walk and five strikeouts.

In the second inning, Taylor hit a one-out double to left, moved to third on a wild pitch and was safe at home on Cain's fielder's-choice grounder for a 1-0 Milwaukee lead.

Willy Adames led off the sixth with an infield single. An out later, Tellez doubled off the fence in right to drive in Adames to make it 2-0. That chased Kuhl for Chris Stratton.

Taylor knocked in Tellez with a double to left for a 3-0 edge. Cain walked and Luis Urias flied out before Pina, batting .135, hit his sixth homer, to left, increasing the lead to 6-0.

With two outs in the seventh, Tellez lofted a shot beyond PNC Park's North Side notch in left-center for his four homer, stretching the Brewers' lead to 7-0 and chasing Stratton.

Cain reached on second baseman Rodolfo Castro's throwing error in the eighth ahead of Pina's second dinger of the night and seventh of the season, to right-center, making it 9-0.

Nogowski, a first baseman, pitched the ninth for Pittsburgh and gave up a two-run single to Cain and an RBI double to Reyes.
