Brewers knock off Pirates for 21st straight time at Miller Park 4-1

Posted:
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Shortstop Craig Counsell helped Milwaukee turn a season-high four double plays and drove in two runs as the Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates for the 21st straight time at home, 4-1 Sunday.

The Brewers' streak is the longest such string in the majors since the Indians beat the Baltimore franchise 27 times in a row at Cleveland Municipal Stadium from 1952-54.

Jeff Suppan (6-8) earned his first win since June 12 with six solid innings on his bobblehead day. He'd been 0-4 with a 6.70 ERA in his last nine starts and spent nearly a month on the disabled list with a strained oblique muscle.

Suppan also drew a go-ahead walk after the Pirates issued an intentional walk to load the bases.
