McCutchen homers again as Pirates beat Brewers 6-4

Posted:

 

 MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run shot for his fourth homer in the last three games and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-4 on Saturday night.

   Casey McGehee also went deep and Kevin Correia pitched six effective innings as the Pirates remained tied with the Cincinnati Reds for the NL Central lead. Correia (6-6) allowed four runs, two earned, and four hits while improving to 4-0 with a 3.81 ERA in his last five starts.

   McCutchen hit his 20th homer in the third and also made a nice sliding catch on a sinking line drive by Martin Maldonaldo with two runners on to end the eighth. The All-Star center fielder is batting .447 with 10 homers and 30 RBIs in his last 28 games.
