MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - Rookie Mike Rogers won his third straight start Friday night with five and a third impressive innings of work against Pittsburgh. Bolstered by a four-run cushion after the first inning, Rogers held the Pirates to just one run and Milwaukee went on to take a 9-3 win. Pittsburgh stayed a half-game behind the equally-struggling St. Louis Cardinals in the battle for the second National League wild card slot. A two-run single by Aramis Ramirez, followed soon after by Corey Hart’s two-run homer got the Brewers off to a strong start. The Brewers scored a run on a wild pitch in the fourth inning, then crossed the plate four more times in the eighth. Ramirez’s two-run home run was the big blast that send the Pirates reeling. Jeff Karstens took the loss, leaving the game in the first inning with pain in his hip.
