Brewers cruise past Pirates, move closer to playoff berth

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Milwaukee Brewers used their power to put the Pittsburgh Pirates on the ropes. Some heads-up baserunning - and more than a little help from the mistake-prone home team - pushed the Brewers closer to the club's fifth playoff berth in franchise history.

Christian Yelich, Travis Shaw and Mike Moustakas all hit homers and Milwaukee scored three times on one wild pitch in the sixth inning to break it open as the Brewers cruised to a 13-6 victory on Sunday.

Yelich finished 2 for 3 to boost his batting average to an NL-leading .322 as Milwaukee won for the third time in four games to bolster its chances of reaching the postseason for the first time since 2011.
