Homers a plenty as Brewers blast Pirates 10-0 in series finale

Posted: Updated:

 PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Domingo Santana had his first career two-home run game, Jonathan Villar hit his first grand slam and Chris Carter connected for his 32nd homer as the Milwaukee Brewers rolled to a 10-0 victory over the sputtering Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
   The Pirates have lost six in a row since sweeping a four-game series at Milwaukee last weekend, falling 3 1/2 games behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second National League wild card. The Pirates host the Cardinals in a three-game series beginning Monday.
   Santana hit a solo shot off starter Steven Brault (0-2) to open the scoring. The third-year outfielder hit the second of back-to-back homers with Carter, who had a three-run drive, off Kelvin Marte during a five-run ninth.
   Villar connected as a pinch-hitter with two outs in the sixth.
   Chase Anderson (8-11) scattered five hits over five innings while striking out two and walking none.
