Brewers still battling for division as they visit Pirates

The Milwaukee Brewers picked a good time to solve the Pittsburgh Pirates, and more of the same could make the upper reaches of the National League Central interesting over the final week-plus of the season.

The Brewers (88-66) moved to within 1 1/2 games of the first-place Chicago Cubs Friday with an 8-3 win in the opener of a weekend series at PNC Park. The game was a disaster in a few ways for the Pirates (77-75), who had won 11 of the first 16 meetings between the clubs.

Milwaukee got homers from Travis Shaw, Mike Moustakas, Erik Kratz and Keon Braxton Friday and used a six-run sixth to squash Pittsburgh's five-game winning streak.
