PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Ryan Braun hit two homers, including a two-run shot with two outs in the ninth inning that sent the Milwaukee Brewers over the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-7 Saturday night.
Braun has five home runs this season after being suspended for the final 65 games last year in the Biogenesis drug scandal. The other three homers came in one game on April 8 at Philadelphia.
The go-ahead drive came off Pirates closer Jason Grilli (0-1), his second blown save in six opportunities. Jean Segura's two-out single kept the inning going for Braun, who had three hits and three RBIs.
Jonathan Lucroy hit three doubles and drove in two runs for the Brewers. Mark Reynolds hit his fourth homer.
Ike Davis doubled, singled and walked a day after the Pirates got him in a trade with the Mets.
Jim Henderson (2-0) pitched a scoreless eighth and Francisco Rodriguez got his sixth save.
