Pirates rally from four runs down, top Brewers 9-6

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Pinch-hitter Gregory Polanco had a tiebreaking three-run double and the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied from four runs down to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-6 on Saturday night.
   Polanco doubled off reliever Blaine Boyer (1-3) with one-out in the sixth, giving the Pirates a 9-6 lead that stood.
   Hernan Perez homered twice for Milwaukee, with a three-run homer during a four-run first, and a solo shot leading off the third that put the Brewers ahead 5-1. It marked the first time since June 24 that Pirates starter Jameson Taillon allowed more than three earned runs.
   Pittsburgh scored five runs in the fourth against Jimmy Nelson to take a 6-5 lead. However, Brewers reliever Tyler Cravy homered off Jeff Locke (9-7) to open the bottom of the inning for his first major league hit.
   Neftali Feliz got the last three outs for his second save in four attempts.
