Brewers sweep

Rookie second baseman Keston Hiura hit two home runs and drove in three runs as his Milwaukee Brewers completed a sweep in Pittsburgh Wednesday. The 8-3 loss means the Pirates have dropped 21-of-25 games since the All-Star break. Milwaukee scored the first five runs of the game, ran its winning streak to a modest three-in-a-row and retook possession of second place in the N-L Central Division, three games behind the Cubs. Junior Guerra got the win in relief. The Brewers are off today (Thursday), then play the Texas Rangers Friday night.
