Keston Hiura and Luis Urías each hit an RBI single during Milwaukee's four-run seventh inning, and the Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1 on Wednesday.

Willy Adames had a run-scoring double as Milwaukee won for the fourth time in five games. Freddy Peralta pitched five effective innings, and Taylor Rogers (3-6) got four outs for the win.

Ben Gamel homered for last-place Pittsburgh, which had won two of three. Kevin Newman had two of the Pirates' five hits.

Pittsburgh jumped in front on Gamel's two-out drive to right-center in the fourth. It was his seventh homer of the season.

But Adames doubled home Tyrone Taylor in the fifth, and Milwaukee went ahead to stay on Omar Narváez's run-scoring groundout against Miguel Yajure (1-1) in the sixth.

Hunter Renfroe sparked Milwaukee's big seventh with a one-out single. Renfroe advanced on Kolten Wong's walk and scored on Hiura's single. Urías followed with an another run-scoring single for a 4-1 lead.

Pirates manager Derek Shelton then replaced Yajure with Yohan Ramirez. But the Brewers extended their rally with a little patience. Consecutive walks for Narváez, rookie pinch-hitter Garrett Mitchell and Christian Yelich brought home two more runs.

Peralta allowed two hits, struck out three and walked none. Rogers, Brad Boxberger and Adrian Houser then combined for four innings of three-hit ball.
