Brewers Lose 10-11, Fail to Sweep Pirates

Pittsburgh manager Lloyd McClendon called it "a wacky game." The Pirates will take any victory they can get these days.

Matt Lawton had four singles and snapped an eighth-inning tie by scoring on a wild pitch as the Pirates rallied from a six-run deficit to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 11-10 Sunday.

Pittsburgh was leading 2-0 in the third when the game was delayed for about 10 minutes while both managers met with umpires. The Pirates then played the game under protest.

McClendon contended that Milwaukee starter Doug Davis was stopping twice during his delivery.

"My contention is it was an illegal windup," McClendon said.

Brewers manager Ned Yost said Davis wasn't doing anything different than he has previously.

"He wasn't deceiving any runners," Yost said.
