Weeks powers Brewers in 12-8 win

MILWAUKEE -- Rickie Weeks broke out of a deep slump with 3 hits and 5 rbi, including a 3 run homer, as the Milwaukee Brewers overpowered the Pirates again, 12-8 on Tuesday night.
The Crew have won 46 of the last 53 games over Pittsburgh at Miller Park since 2007.

With the roof open, both teams left the yard with frequency; the visitors hit 4 homers, the host 3. Ron Roenicke's team has smacked 8 in winning the first 2 games of the 3 game series, which wraps up with a 12:10 first pitch Wednesday afternoon.

The Brewers overcame a blown call at first base that would have ended the 6th inning; instead, a Starling Marte 3 run homer gave the Pirates an 8-7 lead.

But Jean Segura swatted a solo homer to tie the game in the bottom of the inning; Yuniesky Betancourt hit a homer of his own in the 7th to make it 9-8, setting the stage for Weeks wallop in the 8th.
