Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Norichika Aoki went 3-for-5 with three RBI and Marco Estrada spun seven innings of one run ball as the Brewers snapped a four-game skid with a 5-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Milwaukee ran all over A.J. Burnett (3-4) in the opener of this four-game set, with Jean Segura recording three of the team's six stolen bases while also racking up three hits and an RBI.
Aoki swiped two bags and scored twice while Gomez added an RBI in the victory, just Milwaukee's second in the month of May.

Burnett allowed more than two runs for the first time in six starts, charged with four -- three earned -- on seven hits. He struck out seven as Pittsburgh saw its three-game win streak come to an end.
Pedro Alvarez plated the only run for the Pirates, who had just four hits.
