Final Score: Milwaukee 4, Pittsburgh 3
Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Khris Davis' game-winning two-run single
in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-3 win
over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the rubber match of a three-game set on
Ryan Braun led off the ninth with a single before Mark Melancon (1-2) walked
Jonathan Lucroy and Mark Reynolds to load the bases with none away. Davis
stepped up next and his broken-bat flare into shallow center plated
Braun and Lucroy.
"I was just looking around and all of a sudden my teammates were running at
me," Davis said of the hit.
Rob Wooten (1-1) fired 1 1/3 scoreless innings to notch the win.
Rickie Weeks smacked his first homer since July. His solo shot highlighted his
3-for-4 day at the plate. Martin Maldonado also belted a solo blast for
Milwaukee, which has won four of its last five games.
Tony Sanchez cracked a two-run homer and Gaby Sanchez added a solo shot for
the Pirates, who have dropped three of their last four games on the heels of a
four-game winning streak.
"He's a human being and just didn't have his best stuff today. The walks are
uncharacteristic," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said of Melancon.
Weeks' longball into the seats in right opened the scoring in the third
before Tony Sanchez's two-run shot in the fifth gave Pittsburgh a 2-1 edge.
Maldonado's leadoff homer in the fifth was answered by Gaby Sanchez's big fly
in the sixth for a 3-2 Pittsburgh edge.
Reynolds, who made a nice charging play on a slow roller by Jordy Mercer
to end the fourth, again showcased his leather in the seventh. He backhanded a
one-hop rocket to begin a 5-4-3 double play with runners on first and second
with no outs. Mercer struck out to end the threat.
Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo fanned six and allowed three runs on five hits
and two walks over 6 1/3 frames in a no-decision ... Wandy Rodriguez went the
first five innings for the Pirates and was charged with two runs on four hits
with a walk and four strikeouts ... Pittsburgh was 0-for-7 with runners in
scoring position and left seven men on base.
