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.
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.
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.
