Braun helps Brewers snap skid with walk-off single in 10th

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Braun's two-out single scored Rickie Weeks from second base in the 10th inning and the Milwaukee Brewers snapped a five-game losing streak with a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

Milwaukee tied it at 4 with a run in the ninth off Octavio Dotel, who blew his fourth save in 23 chances.

The Pirates have lost four consecutive games and 22 of their last 24 on the road.

Pinch-hitter Jim Edmonds singled leading off the 10th against Evan Meek (4-3), the Pirates' NL All-Star representative. Dave Bush, slated to be the Brewers' starter Saturday night, pinch-ran and was erased on Weeks' fielder's choice groundout.
