Hart's walk-off homer vs. Pirates gives Brewers sweep heading into break

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Corey Hart hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning to give the Milwaukee Brewers a dramatic 6-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday.

The Brewers trailed 5-4 when pinch hitter Jim Edwards led off the ninth with a ground-rule double off Octavio Dotel (2-2). Rickie Weeks flied out and then Hart belted a 2-0 pitch over the wall in left for his second game-ending home run of the season.

John Axford (5-1) allowed a run in the ninth but picked up the win for Milwaukee, which swept the three-game series and handed Pittsburgh its sixth straight loss.

Pittsburgh was also swept by Houston and hasn't won since beating Philadelphia last Sunday.
