Pirates pound Wolf, beat Brewers 8-2

Posted:

 

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates scored six runs off Randy Wolf in the third inning, then went on to pound the Milwaukee Brewers 8-2 on Friday night.

   Ryan Braun left the game with a right hip strain, after sitting out Thursday night's game because of lingering tightness in his right Achilles tendon.

   Kevin Correia (2-5) gave up two runs and five hits in 5 2-3 innings for the Pirates, who have won six of their last seven games. The Pirates came into Friday's game with a 4-38 record at Miller Park since the start of the 2007 season.

   Nyjer Morgan hit a solo home run in the first inning for Milwaukee, snapping his Major League record of 138 straight plate appearances without an RBI to start the season. But Morgan's misplayed ball in the outfield played a critical role in the Pirates' big inning.
