Perez provided the punch, but Oneil Cruz and Jack Suwinski also hit back-to-back home runs in the second inning. Those home runs put the Pirates up 3-0, but the Brewers would fight back and that is when Perez took over.
Friday, they will look to get another win as they look to clinch at least a split of their series with the rival Brewers.
The Brewers, though, will be looking to even the series when they send ace Corbin Burnes to the mound.
Burnes has been a strikeout machine again this year and is currently third in the league with 119 punchouts.
The Brewers have won his last three starts and seven of his last nine. He has been great as he follows up his Cy Young season from last year.
Burnes has one other start against the Pirates this year as he went seven innings, giving up just two runs and striking out 10.
