Hoffman Blows Another Save as Brewers Lose in 14 Innings

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Doumit got the best of Trevor Hoffman again and Garrett Jones' two-out, run-scoring double in the 14th rallied the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Milwaukee Brewers 6-5 on Wednesday.

Doumit homered off the all-time saves leader for the second straight day to start the ninth, tying it 4-4. Andrew McCutchen hit the second of his two homers in the 10th, but Milwaukee rallied for a run off Pirates closer Octavio Dotel on Casey McGehee's one-out single.

Akinori Iwamura singled to lead off the 14th inning and Jones delivered a double down the right-field line off Brewers reliever Manny Parra (0-1).

Pirates reliever D.J. Carrasco (1-0) got the victory with three scoreless innings.
