Pirates Vs. Brewers: Pittsburgh Totals Just Five Hits In 5-1 Loss To Milwaukee

The Pittsburgh Pirates, again, had trouble at the plate. Compiling just five hits, Pittsburgh (26-26) dropped the second game of its weekend series against the Milwaukee Brewers, 5-1 on Saturday night at Miller Park.

The lone run for the Pirates came in the top of the fourth inning -- a solo home run from right fielder Garrett Jones, who finished 2-for-4. It was Jones' sixth homer of the season.

Meanwhile, the Brewers (24-29) did a bit of damage hitting-wise in the fourth, as well. With the game knotted at one, they grabbed four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning as the result of a two-run single from shortstop Cody Ransom and a two-run home run from Brooks Conrad. Pitcher Erik Bedard, who got the start for the Pirates, was pulled afterwards.

The rubber-match finale is schedule for tomorrow at 2:10 p.m. EST. Pittsburgh won the first game of the series on Friday, 8-2.
