PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Delwyn Young and Garrett Jones homered to help the Pittsburgh Pirates end a 17-game skid against the Milwaukee Brewers with an 8-5 victory Monday night.
Andrew McCutchen had three hits and scored two runs for Pittsburgh, which snapped the major's longest losing streak against a single opponent in 39 years. The Baltimore Orioles won 23 straight against the Kansas City Royals from 1969-70.
Felipe Lopez went 4 for 4 in his Milwaukee debut and Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer in the Brewers' three-run ninth. Lopez was acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.
