The Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 at Miller Park Tuesday night as Travis Snider smacked a pinch hit home run in the top of the ninth inning off Jim Henderson. The victory is the 81st of the season for the Pirates, ensuring a non-losing season for the first time since 1992. The run of losing seasons was the longest in pro sports in North America. Pittsburgh also increased its lead in the NL Central race to two games over St. Louis which lost to Cincinnati 1-0. The game was hotly contested throughout. Jonathan Lucroy delivered a two run single in the first inning to give Yovani Gallardo a lead. The Pirates moved back in front 3-2 until Jean Segura's run scoring single in the bottom of the 8th tied the game. Gallardo worked seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits with six strikeouts. Henderson took the loss to fall to 3-5. The Brewers have now dropped five straight, all at home. Wily Peralta faces Francisco Liriano in the series finale Wednesday night.
