The Milwaukee Brewers have been off to a hot start this season.
11 games into the new season, the team is 8-3 and leads the NL Central over the Pittsburgh Pirates by a game.
They are also ahead of the defending division champion St. Louis Cardinals by four games.
On Tuesday, they continued their trend of dominance with Corbin Burnes on the hill.
The right-hander and former Cy Young gave the Brew Crew eight innings of scoreless baseball.
He also allowed just three hits, struck out eight batters, and did not allow a walk.

Burnes is off to a bit of a rough start, having posted a 5.19 ERA in his first three outings.
Fortunately, Tuesday was his first win of the year, and he led the Brewers to their eighth win of the regular season.
Milwaukee won 86 games in 2022, missing the playoffs by just one game, even after trading away Josh Hader.
Their starting rotation, led by Burnes, is their biggest strength.
And it was on full display on Tuesday night as the right-hander stuck it to the Arizona Diamondbacks for eight innings.
The Brewers lost the opener of the three-game series, but were able to turn to Burnes in a key spot to get them back in the win column.
The right-hander went 12-8 with a 2.94 ERA in 2022 on the heels of his Cy Young campaign the year before.
The Brewers will attempt to go for a series win on Wednesday at Chase Field.NEXT: The Brewers Bullpen Is Off To A Must-See Start
