Brewers Rally Falls Just Short in Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pedro Alvarez hit a grand slam in Pittsburgh's nine-run first and a solo drive in the second for his first career multi-homer game, helping the Pirates beat the Milwaukee Brewers 11-9 on Tuesday night.

Fellow rookie Neil Walker had a career-high five hits for the Pirates, who got 3 2-3 scoreless innings from four relievers after the Brewers got within one.

Jim Edmonds and Ryan Braun went deep for the Brewers. Edmonds finished with four hits.
