PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (Reuters) - The Milwaukee Brewers handed Pittsburgh their worst ever loss on Thursday, crushing the Pirates 20-0.

The Brewers batted around for 25 hits to record the first 20-0 game since 1900, and the fifth largest shutout in the Major League.

"It's rare, it's special," Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun told reporters after finishing with three hits and five RBIs.

"Everything that could possibly go our way did, and everything that could possibly go against (the Pirates) did."

It was the fourth straight win for the Brewers (8-7) who exploded to torture six Pittsburgh (7-8) pitchers.

Randy Wolf pitched six scoreless innings to get the win for Milwaukee while Jim Edmonds finished with four hits and three RBIs and Prince Fielder also added three RBIs.
