Bucs five-game sweep Brewers

Bucs five-game sweep Brewers

According to STATS LLC, Marte and Polanco are the third duo in Major League Baseball history - and second from the Pirates - to go back-to-back in both games of a doubleheader.

Bell might have turned the corner in that department on Friday, with two doubles and a triple as part of his four-hit night that helped Pittsburgh to a 7-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Overall, the Pirates have won three straight for the first time in more than a month, and they have won five of their last six games.

Marte, who extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a ground-rule double in the sixth, applauded while jogging outside of Pittsburgh's dugout as Polanco rounded the bases.

"No matter what, you can't control what's going to happen". Despite winning nine of their last 10, they're still 8 1/2 games out of first place in the Central Division and must jump six teams in the Wild Card race.

Pittsburgh second baseman Josh Harrison left with left hamstring tightness and was replaced by Max Moroff.

"We're 90 games in and we've got 70 games to go", he said. Both Phillips and Anderson had been recalled from Triple-A before the game.

Trump beholden to Putin? Summit does nothing to dispel impression
Even before the meeting, most Americans disliked Putin, while saying they believed Trump took a more positive view of him. For his part, Trump criticised the ongoing U.S. investigation into the allegations as a "disaster".

Indians infielder José Ramírez became just the fifth player ever to hit 25 home runs and steal 20 bases before the All-Star Break. In fact, he has just one decision - a win June 29 against Cincinnati - in his past four starts.

Milwaukee starter Jhoulys Chacin allowed one hit in 5 1/3 innings, but his throwing error allowed Musgrove to reach base ahead of Corey Dickerson's homer, which was the only damage against him.

With the Pirates leading 3-0 in the eighth, Marte hit his 13th homer over the left-field wall before Polanco hit his 16th to right-center to make it 5-0.

Suter is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA in eight career appearances, including three starts, against the Pirates. In the midst of this taxing schedule leading into the All-Star break, Brewers manager Craig Counsell joked about why he pegged Suter for the second half of the doubleheader.

"I thought it would be good to have the guy who works fast in the second game", he said.

Brewers: Have not announced a starter for Friday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. His first start came during a down stretch for the Pirates.

"There were some challenges there", said Holmes, whose fastball reached 99 miles per hour.
