Once again, Kevin Correia turned in a solid start. He got knocked around a little bit, but settled down and kept the Bucs in the game.
Corey Hart tripled in a run in the second and scored on an RBI-groundout as Milwaukee went up 2-0 early. Cutch tied the game with a two-run blast off of Marco Estrada in the third. An E-5 allowed a run to score in the bottom half, and a sac-fly tacked on another.
That would be all the Brewers would get offensively, as it was all Bucs from there. Casey McGehee drove in a run in the sixth, but the Pirates left runners on second and third, still down a run. A few blunders by the Brew Crew allowed the Bucs to take the lead in the seventh. Josh Harrison laid down a sac-bunt, but it was thrown away and Clint Barmes scored all the way from first. Then, with runners on the corners, Cutch drew a walk, but ball four was a passed ball, and a run scored to make it 5-4. McGehee hit a solo home run for some insurance in the eighth, as Jason Grilli and Joel Hanrahan went on to close it out (although both allowed a few baserunners.)
