Pirates Vs. Brewers: Pittsburgh Remains Tied For Division Lead After 6-4 Win

Needing a win to stay even with the Cincinnati Reds atop the N.L. Central, the Pittsburgh Pirates got one on Saturday by a final count of 6-4 over the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park.

Kevin Correia, who lasted six innings and allowed just two earned runs, was credited with the win, his sixth on the season, thanks to two runs in the top of the seventh inning. Trailing 3-2 heading into the inning, the Pirates got on the scoreboard, as Clint Barmes scored off a throwing error from Milwaukee's Kameron Loe and Josh Harrison on a passed ball.

Closer Joel Hanrahan would come on for the ninth to record the save, his 24th.

The series rubber-match on Sunday is scheduled for 2:10 p.m. PST.
