Brewers stay tied for the Wild Card with wild finish

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ryan Braun delivered the game-winning grand slam in the 10th inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers finished a sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates with a 5-1 victory Thursday night to remain tied in the NL wild-card race.

Rickie Weeks led off the 10th with a single off Pirates reliever Jesse Chavez. Jason Kendall advanced Weeks to second with a sacrifice bunt, and the Pirates walked Ray Durham intentionally. Chavez (0-1) struck out Cameron, but walked pinch hitter Craig Counsell to load the bases.

Braun then clobbered a 2-2 pitch deep to left field, holding up his bat and hollering to the Brewers' dugout as he began to circle the bases.
