The Milwaukee Brewers have a godsend in Mike Fiers.  He won his fourth straight start since getting called up from the minors and helped the Brewers avoid a sweep at the hands of the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday at Miller Park.   Milwaukee's 4-3 victory keeps them one and a half games in front of the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Central Division race.  Fiers (4-1) worked seven innings and allowed two runs on just two hits with seven strikeouts.  After Starling Marte hit a two run homer in the second, Fiers retired 16 of the next 17 batters.   In the four victories, Fiers has pitched 28 innings, posting an ERA of 1.29 and has struck out 32 while walking only four.   The offense used a pair of two out rallies to score two runs in each of the first two frames against Vance Worley.  Aramis Ramirez went three for four and Johnathan Lucroy smacked his league leading 43rd double.   Francisco Rodriguez locked down his 39th save but made life interesting allowing a solo home run to Andrew McCutcheon. The Brewers hit the road for a west coast swing opening a three game series in San Diego Monday night.  Kyle Lohse is expected back on the mound after missing a couple of turns with a bad ankle.  Pre-Game coverage begins at 8:35 PM on WTAQ.
