Pirates Vs. Brewers Recap: 3rd Inning Rally Leads To 8-2 Bucs Win

The Pittsburgh Pirates opened their weekend series against the Brewers with an 8-2 win. The Bucs put together a big third-inning rally, batting around and stringing together six hits and scoring six runs off Milwaukee starter Randy Wolf. The inning started with back-to-back triples by Josh Harrison and Andrew McCutchen. After RBI singles by Neil Walker and Rod Barajas, Jose Tabata came through with a huge bases-loaded double to deep center that scored three runs and blew the game open.

Kevin Correia was solid in 5.2 innings of work. He allowed just two earned runs, both coming on solo shots and he settled in nicely to protect the big lead. The Bucs are now over .500 and will look to clinch the series on Saturday with Erik Bedard on the hill.
