Ryan Braun's ninth-inning homer carries Brewers past Pirates

With boos cascading down from every angle of PNC Park, Ryan Braun let his bat do the talking Saturday night. The embattled rightfielder went 3 for 5, scored four runs and homered twice, with his second — a two-run shot off all-star closer Jason Grilli with one out in the ninth inning — lifting the Milwaukee Brewers to a dramatic 8-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Brewers 8, Pirates 7

Crushing loss. The Pirates dug out of an early hole and looked to be on their way to a nice, much-needed victory, but arguably the most hated man in baseball changed all that. Ryan Braun is a terrible person. Yes, he cheated, but this is what makes him hate-able. And this. And this. Etc. Obviously the boos don’t bother him, but they are well-deserved. Watching a guy like that single...

Brewers pull one from the fire late

For two straight nights, the Milwaukee Brewers have made the kind of mistakes that usually lead to losses, yet they have found a way to take both games from a division foe. Instead of the storyline being a couple of defensive miscues leading to a five-run fourth inning for Pittsburgh, Ryan Braun homered twice in the final three innings to help the Brewers steal a victory from the...

The Milwaukee Brewers are for real

A nine game winning streak. A 10-2 overall record. The best pitching ERA in baseball. The fifth-best team batting average in the league. Oh yes, the Milwaukee Brewers are red hot.

Perhaps the most impressive part of their hot start is that...
