Sogard’s 11th-Inning Double Gives Brewers 6-5 Win at Pittsburgh

A double by Eric Sogard in the 11th inning gave the Milwaukee Brewers a 6-5 win at Pittsburgh Monday.  The Brewers were down by a 5-1 score entering the ninth inning, but the Pirate bullpen couldn’t protect the lead.  Ryan Braun’s two-run double with two outs tied the score in the ninth.  Sogard’s hard-hit line drive down the left-field line knocked in Brock Holt with the winning run.

David Phelps fanned Pittsburgh’s Bryan Reynolds with a man on third to protect the lead and pick up his first victory.

The game was delayed an hour and 42 minutes by rain.

Thirty-three-year-old Josh Lindblom will make the second major league start of his career against his former Pirates team tonight. We’ll have the ballgame for you right here on 940 WFAW. Our broadcast starts at 5:30.
