PITTSBURGH, PA (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Brewers ended a five-game losing streak to Pittsburgh with a 7-6 victory Tuesday night at P-N-C Park. Aramis Ramirez fell a triple short of the cycle by going 4-for-5 with four R-B-I’s. Ramirez hit a two-run double and his 350th career homer in his best game since returning from knee injuries that he’s dealt with for most of the season. Milwaukee broke a 6-6 tie in the eighth when pinch-hitter Caleb Gindl hit a sacrifice fly to right that scored Yuniesky Betancourt, who had doubled. The Brewers almost blew a 5-0 lead in the fifth, when Norichika Aoki tried making a running catch in rightfield with two outs and dropped the ball. That led to four Pittsburgh runs, including a three-run blast by Neil Walker that almost landed in the Allegheny River. Rob Wooten got the win in relief, improving to 3-0. Jim Henderson stranded two runners in the ninth for his 22nd save. He broke a team record by getting a save in his 12th consecutive appearance, topping Trevor Hoffman’s old mark from 2009. Brewers’ outfielder Khris Davis ended his 11-game hitting streak by going 0 for 5. Pedro Alvarez hit his National League-leading 32nd homer for Pittsburgh, which has lost three straight. The Brewers and Pirates will play again tonight. Former Pirates left-hander Tom Gorzelanny will start against right-hander Charlie Morton. Tune in for the pregame on WHBL at 5:30.
