The Pittsburgh Pirates swept their three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers with a decisive 5-4 win thanks to a wide receiver error Thursday at PNC Park.
Pitcher Matt Bush and receiver Victor Caratini can blame each other since their club had never trailed in this meeting. The gunner completely missed his shot, which hit Caratini in the shoulder after a rebound. From third base, Bryan Reynolds only had to jog to home plate.
Bush (2-2) was not very confident during this 10e round since it had allowed Reynolds to create equality a few moments earlier on a double. He also gave intentional walks to Ben Gamel and Oneil Cruz.
At the start of this overtime batting, it was the Brewers who had luck when Kolten Wong was hit by a pitch from Duane Underwood Jr. (1-3) while the bases were loaded.
