No relief for Crew in 4-3 loss to Pirates
The Brewers ran their winless streak on the 6 game homestand to 5 with a 4-3 loss to the Pirates Tuesday night at Miller Park.
Continuing a pattern of poor performances by the bullpen–Jim Henderson allowed the game-winning homer to pinch-hitter Travis Snider in the top of the 9th.
Jonathan Lucroy’s 2-rbi single put the hosts ahead 2-1 in the first inning; the Crew tied the game at 3 on an rbi single by Jean Segura.
Yovani Gallardo worked 7 innings, allowing 2 runs and striking out 6.
With the victory, 1st place Pittsburgh clinched a 500 record, thus snapping a streak of 20 straight losing seasons.
