MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - A Corey Hart home run in the ninth inning gave Milwaukee a 3-2 walk-off win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday night. Hart was leading the inning off when he slammed his 26th homer of the season off Pirate closer Joel Hanrahan. The win was the 10th for Milwaukee in its last 12 games. The Pirates, struggling to stay alive in the race for a National League wild card playoff spot, have dropped nine of 12. Hanrahan took the loss, while Milwaukee’s closer, John Axford, picked up his fifth win. Starter Marco Estrada kept the Brewers in the game by stopping Pittsburgh on four hits in seven innings, allowing just one run and striking out 10. Pirates starter A.J. Burnett was even better, carrying a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Rickie Weeks broke it up. Carlos Gomez produced Milwaukee first two runs. In the third he walked, stole second and third, then scored on a wild pitch. In the seventh, Gomez broke a 1-1 tie with an RBI double. The Brewers go for the series sweep this afternoon.
