Pirates secure five-game sweep of Brewers with walk-off win

PITTSBURGH, PA - JULY 15: Josh Bell #55 of the Pittsburgh Pirates celebrates after hitting a walk off two RBI double in the tenth inning against the Milwaukee Brewers at PNC Park on July 15, 2018 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Gregory Polanco also helped the Pirates offensively, collecting two hits, two runs, and two RBI in the doubleheader.

The Pirates have won the first four games of their five-game series against the Brewers. You can catch all of the action, starting with pregame coverage on WISR 680AM.

In his second major league start, Clay Holmes (1-1) allowed no runs on four hits with six strikeouts and two walks for his first win.

The Pirates enter the All-Star break with a 48-49 record after they topped the Brewers in five straight games this week, including a doubleheader sweep Saturday.

Nola (12-3) needed 31 pitches to get through the first.

Royals reliever Enny Romero surrendered five earned runs in one inning on the mound against the White Sox.

It was the 14th start of the season in right field for Thames. "I started attacking the zone and the results came".

A home run from Max Moroff, his third of the season, off Brent Suter (8-6) opened the scoring in the third inning.

Reynolds, 67, remained calm throughout the entire ordeal, with friends holding her hands and making calls, Zedeya said. Margaret Reynolds, 67, had to be freed with a bolt cutter, police in the United States said.

"That's something that not everybody, especially a pitcher gets to do", Woodruff said.

The fourth-place Pirates have won five of their last six. After loading the bases with no outs, Knebel got Jordy Mercer to ground into a double play that scored one run, but then pinch-hitter David Freese hit a two-out triple off the right-field wall to tie the game.

Bell, whose had a disappointing season after being a spark plug for the Bucs in 2017, needs to be a consistent run-producer for Pittsburgh if they hope to return to their winning ways in the second half. We hit a bunch of singles today.

Pirates: 2B Josh Harrison left the game with left hamstring discomfort. Cervelli went on the seven-day disabled list Saturday without a timetable for his return. C Jacob Stallings, who started the second game and hit seventh, was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis to replace him on the 25-man roster.

Following Friday's performance, Thames is batting a modest.250/.344/.556 with 13 home runs and five stolen bases through 183 plate appearances this year.

Wilmer Flores, Jose Reyes and Kevin Plawecki each had two hits as the light-hitting Mets scored seven runs for the first time since June 24.

Pirates: RHP Joe Musgrove (3-4, 3.77) will attempt to carry momentum from his previous two starts.
