Milwaukee’s Mike Moustakas launched a homer and Christian Yelich hit his major league-leading 24th home run and the Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 5-2, on Sunday for a three-game sweep.
The Pirates Jung Ho Kang, reinstated Saturday from the 10-day injured list after being out with a left side strain, hit a two-run homer in the first inning. The homer was Kang’s fifth home run of the season.
Pirates rookie Bryan Reynolds extended his hitting streak to 17 games with an infield single in the first. He also singled in the eighth.
Pirates GM Neal Huntington said Trevor Williams (right side strain) and Chris Stratton (right side discomfort) were ready for rehab starts, probably at Triple-A Indianapolis.
The Pirates are in Atlanta tonight to start a series with the Braves. Joe Musgrove will take the mound for the Bucs
