McCutchen returns to lineup, homes as Pirates rout Brewers

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) - - Andrew McCutchen homered in his return to Pittsburgh's lineup, Neil Walker also hit a three-run homer and the Pirates routed the Milwaukee Brewers 10-2 Sunday.

McCutchen took himself out of Friday night's game because of soreness in his left knee and didn't play Saturday.

McCutchen's three-run shot helped the Pirates take two of three from Milwaukee after they were swept in their season-opening series against Cincinnati.

Casey Sadler (1-0) earned his first major league win, going five innings in his first career start. He pitched in place of ace Francisco Liriano, who is on the paternity leave list.

Sadler gave up two runs and four hits, striking out five.

Kyle Lohse (0-2) allowed four runs and eight hits in 6 1/3 innings.

Pirates third baseman Jung Ho Kang got his first big league hit, a single in the seventh. He is the first player to go directly from the South Korea pro league to the majors.
