Brewers scores 6 in 7th inning to beat Pirates 7-2
Question of the Day
Escobar’s triple on a misplayed ball by right fielder Lastings Milledge scored two to give Milwaukee its first lead of the game at 3-2.
Chris Narveson pitched seven innings in his longest start since he went eight in a 3-0 win June 27 against Seattle. He allowed two runs on seven hits while striking out eight and walking one.
James McDonald (2-4) was cruising along in his 10th major-league start before the seventh.
Corey Hart doubled in a run before Ryan Braun added a two-run double.
Escobar also turned in a defensive gem in the sixth with a running, over-the-shoulder catch in short center. The shortstop quickly popped to his feet and fired to first to double off Jose Tabata, who had nearly reached second before retreating.
Chris Snyder’s solo shot to left in the fifth extended the Pirates‘ lead to 2-0. Ronny Cedeno singled for the first run of the game in the second inning.
Notes: Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo and clubhouse attendant Alex Sanchez were robbed at gunpoint early Friday, hours after Milwaukee’s ace pitched in a loss to the Dodgers. Gallardo did not take any questions after briefly discussing the incident outside the team clubhouse before the start of the Brewers‘ three-game series against Pittsburgh. … Milledge was nearly thrown out on Cedeno’s single. He took off from second on Cedeno’s line drive to right field. Hart fielded the ball cleanly and fired home to Lucroy. Milwaukee’s rookie catcher mishandled the throw on what could have been a very close call for umpire Bill Miller, allowing Milledge to score and give Pittsburgh an early 1-0 lead. … Pittsburgh took the final two games of a series at home against St. Louis before coming to Milwaukee.
