The Milwaukee Brewers found themselves losing another game late on Thursday, this time by a 5-4 margin to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Pirates struck first with a bases-loaded walk, but home runs by Victor Caratini and Mike Brousseau made it 3-1 after five innings. Two RBI singles tied the game in the seventh inning at three runs apiece before the game eventually went to extra innings. Kolten Wong scored the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th on a base-loaded hit by pitch, but reliever Matt Bush could not hold the lead. He gave up a ground-rule double to Bryan Reynolds, who would later score on a wild pitch.
The game wasted another strong start by Brandon Woodruff, who pitched into the seventh inning, allowing three runs (two earned) while striking out three.
The Brewers head home for the weekend as they host the Cincinnati Reds beginning at 7:10 p.m. Friday.
