Pirates blast Brewers 6-2; Milwaukee drops five straight

Milwaukee has lost five straight games and six of their past seven after a 6-2 loss in the second game of a doubleheader to Pittsburgh on Saturday. The Pirates hit five home runs in the second game and seven on Saturday total to beat the Brewers.

Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco hit home runs in both of Saturday's contests for the Pirates, while Jordan Luplow blasted two in the second game and Max Moroff also went yard for Pittsburgh.

Milwaukee's only scoring came in the top of the ninth inning, when Jesús Aguilar drove in Jacob Nottingham and ‎Hernán Pérez.

The Brewers have fallen a game out of first place in the NL Central, with the Chicago Cubs still to play their game against Los Angeles on Saturday night.
