Pirates Rally In Ninth, But Lose 3-1

Jeff Karstens took a perfect game into the fifth inning, but ended up allowing homers to Prince Fielder and Rickie Weeks that gave the Brewers all they needed to defeat the Bucs, 3-1. The Pirates managed to rally in the ninth, bringing the winning run to the plate against Milwaukee’s John Axford, but Axford struck out Ryan Doumit and Ryan Church and got Ronny Cedeno to ground out to end the game.
