Brewers Blasted By Bucs

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pedro Alvarez had two home runs for the second consecutive game and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Milwaukee Brewers 15-3 Wednesday night.

The Pirates' prized rookie hit a two-run homer to center in the fifth and a solo shot off the right-field pole in the eighth.

Delwyn Young had a home run and a career-high five RBIs to help Pittsburgh win for the fourth time in five games. On Tuesday, Alvarez had a grand slam and a solo homer in the Pirates' 11-9 win over Milwaukee.

George Kottaras homered for the Brewers, who had a starting pitcher allow more then 10 runs for the third time in four games.
