McCutchen, Pirates win in 10th, end 9-game skid at Milwaukee

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Andrew McCutchen hit a home run and a pair of RBI singles, including the tiebreaker in the 10th inning as the Pittsburgh Pirates stopped a nine-game skid at Miller Park, beating the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 Thursday night.

McCutchen has 44 RBIs in 56 career games at Miller Park, his highest total at any opposing park.

McCutchen homered into the second tier of seats in left field off Wily Peralta in the first for his 18th home run of the season. He then hit an RBI single that beat the shift in the third.

Pinch-hitter John Jaso blooped a single off Carlos Torres (2-3), advanced on a sacrifice, took third on a ground out and scored on McCutchen's liner through the right side of the infield.

Antonio Bastardo (2-0) picked up the win in relief and Tony Watson pitched a scoreless 10th for his eighth save in 11 chances.
