Pirates Dominate Brewers; Win Second Game In A Row

The Bucs were on fire again in game two and blew out the Brewers 12-5. Just like last night, the Bucs showed up in every aspect. Their hitting was fantastic, and their pitching did a create job at slowing down Milwaukee. 

Derek Holland took the hill for the Bucs and had a good outing, although he had a few fielding errors. He was able to strike out five, in five innings. Holland also got out of a couple of jams early on to keep the Pirate in it.

Pittsburgh scored first on a Colin Moran homer to take an early lead in the 1st

Domination

The next run came in favor of the Brewers in the 4th as Jedd Gyorko went yard to tie the game, 1-1. In the bottom half, the Bucs broke the tie thanks to a Gregory Polanco two-run blast.

The Pirates rallied in the 5th inning started on an Adam Frazier homer. Then, Bryan Reynolds continued his hot streak with a double that scored Moran.

Jacob Stallings notched a two-run homer, his first of the year; in the 6th inning to give the Bucs a commanding 7-1 lead.

However, in the top of the 7th, Keston Hiura bombed a three-run homer to cut the Bucs’ lead 7-4.

Insurance

The Bucs answered and scored five runs in the bottom half of the 7th inning to take a 12-4 lead. Pittsburgh’s runs came with two outs with the bases loaded. Jacob Stallings walked a run in, Erik Gonzalez singled to bring in two runs. Then, Frazier doubled to score Gonzalez and Stallings.

The Brewers scored another run in the top of the 9th off a Ryan Braun double that scored Orlando Arcia. Pittsburgh got into a little bit of trouble later in the inning with two outs. However, they got out of the jam to win their second game in a row.

The Bucs come back tomorrow and try to get their first series sweep.
