Milwaukee starter Freddy Peralta, who just came off the injured list, pitched 3 2/3 innings, giving up two runs and four hits, with three strikeouts and two walks.

The Brewers took a 1-0 lead in the first on Wong's RBI single and increased it to 4-0 in the second on Adames' two-run base hit and Tellez's first RBI single.

In the third, Hayes' two-out, two-run single cut it to 4-2.

The Pirates tied it 4-4 in the sixth. With one out, Cruz singled. Pinch hitter Michael Chavis doubled to drive in Cruz and went to third on right fielder Hunter Renfroe's throwing error. An out later, Tucupita Marcano singled to bring Chavis home.

In the Pittsburgh seventh, Kevin Newman singled and went to third on Reynolds' single. Ben Gamel grounded into a fielder's choice, with Newman getting thrown out in a rundown while the runners went to second and third.

Hayes followed with an RBI single to make it 5-4 but was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double. Cruz's eighth homer then upped the advantage to 7-4.
