Correia’s no-hitter was broken up by Jonathan Lucroy’s double to lead off the sixth. Marcum followed by attempting to sacrifice him to third but ended up reaching and was credited with a single.

With one out, Carlos Gomez’s sacrifice fly scored Lucroy, and Ryan Braun followed with a single, setting up Fielder’s homer on an 0-1 pitch into the bullpen in left-center.

“I was pitching well, and then I had one bad inning,” Correia said. “But a lot of times, all it takes is one bad inning to lose a game.”

The reigning NL player of the week, Fielder has at least a hit and an RBI in each of his past six games, totaling three home runs and 14 RBIs in that time.

Traditionally a pull hitter, none of the left-handed hitting first baseman’s three home runs this season have gone to right field. Twenty-two of his 194 career homers have come against the Pirates, most of any opponent.

“When he’s driving the ball the other way like that, that’s bad news for the opposing pitchers because there’s really not much they can do with him,” Roenicke said.”

Yuniesky Betancourt added an RBI double in the seventh _ ending Correia’s night not long after his bid for a no-hitter ended _ and Betancourt would score on a Marcum groundout.

Correia’s final stat line belied his impressive first five innings: Six-plus innings, six runs _ four earned _ five hits, two walks and a strikeout.

“He threw a breaking ball up in the zone that we wanted down, and he paid for it on the home run to Fielder,” Hurdle said. “Other than that, I thought he pitched well.”
