Brewers retake first after clobbering Bucs

The Milwaukee Brewers' 14-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates was made even sweeter Thursday night thanks to a little help from their neighbors to the south.


Sal Frelick and Bryce Turang hit three-run homers in back-to-back innings to lead the offensive onslaught that actually started with the Pirates scoring in the game's opening frame. Frelick helped the Brewers start the rout with a two-run double in the bottom of the first en route to his five-RBI day. Christian Yelich and William Contreas each drove in two runs and Joey Wiemer drove in another in the victory. Adrian House earned the victory, striking out five while allowing one run on four hits across six innings of work.


The Brewers received good news on two fronts later in the day. The Chicago Cubs finished off their series win against the Cincinnati Reds later in the evening to give the Brewers a slim lead in the NL Central. They also learned that Brandon Woodruff would make his return to the mound for the Brewers in Sunday's finale against the Pirates.
