The Milwaukee Brewers batted around and scored four runs in the eighth inning, setting the stage for an eventual 7-4 win at PNC Park.
Orlando Arcia, Manny Pina and Keon Broxton all drove in runs against the Pirates bullpen. Arcia finished the game a home run shy of the cycle.
The Pirates got two runs back in the bottom of the eighth, but the Brewers would score one more time in the ninth to close out the scoring.
Tyler Thornburg closed out the ninth, retiring all three hitters to collect his 8th save of the season.
It was the first three-hit game of Arcia’s career. His average climbed from .184 to .204.
Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson went 5 1/3 innings and allowed a career high six walks, but still held the Pirates to just one run and four hits.
