Ryan Braun blasted his 25th home run late, a two run shot and the Brewers made it 13 straight victories over the Pirates. The second game started great as Corey Hart ripped his 19th homer of the year and Prince Fielder knocked in his 99th run in a 2 run first inning. Pittsburgh was able to tie the game against Zack Greinke as Pirate starter Brad Lincoln held the Crew's offense in check. The Pirates erupted for 7 runs in the 7th, their biggest inning of the season and wound up winning 9-2. Greinke falls to 12-5. It was PIttsburgh's first victory over the Brewers since July 21 of last year. Even with the split, the Brewers increased their lead in the NL Central as Los Angeles rallied for two runs in the top of the ninth to beat the Cardinals in St. Louis 2-1, Milwaukee (77-53) now leads the Cards by 9 full games.
