Brewers edge Pirates 3-2 for 8th straight win

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Gomez hit a leadoff homer, Jonathan Lucroy drove in the tiebreaking run with an eighth-inning single and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Saturday night for their eighth consecutive victory.

Gomez got Milwaukee started with a 432-foot drive to center field off Edinson Volquez, and Khris Davis scored on a wild pitch to make it 2-0 in the second.

Pittsburgh tied it in the third on Starling Marte's groundout and Travis Snider's single, ending Yovani Gallardo's scoreless streak to start the season at 14 2-3 innings.

Lucroy singled to right in the eighth to drive in Ryan Braun, who beat the throw to the plate.

Jim Henderson (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning of relief for the win. Francisco Rodriguez got his fourth save in four attempts.
