Three home runs were not enough to catapult the Milwaukee Brewers to the All-Star break on a winning note, losing to the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5 Sunday.
The Pirates had a 2-0 lead entering the fifth inning when Jesus Aguilar hit his seventh home run of the year. The Brewers would give that run right back when Brian Reynolds hit a ground rule double to drive in the Pirates' Adam Frazier. Aguilar and Reynolds would trade three-run homers in the seventh inning before Keston Hiura drove in the game's final runs on a two-run home run in the eighth to narrow the gap to 6-5.
A collection of Brewers will play in Tuesday's All-Star game before returning home to Miller Park to host the San Francisco Giants.
