MILWAUKEE (AP) Zach Davies couldnt hold an

early lead and it proved costly to the Milwaukee Brewers.Davies gave up a go-ahead double to Francisco Cervelli in the fourth inning that lifted the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 3-2 win over the Brewers on Saturday night.Milwaukee lost for just the fourth time in 15 games and dropped 2 1/2 games behind the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs. The Brewers lead for the NLs top wild card was cut to three games over the Los Angeles Dodgers.The team was there till the end of it http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-jersey , Davies said, even though he was finished after five innings. The fights still there. Its going to be fighting till the end of the season.Christian Yelich reached 30 homers for the first time when he connected in the first off Ivan Nova (9-9).You got to be careful with that guy, Nova said of Yelich. I went 1-1 trying to go in off the plate, missed off the plate and guy hit a homer.Nova wasnt worried, though.The game doesnt end in the first inning, Nova said. You got to move on.Nova gave up one run and four hits in six innings. He retired 17 of the next 20 batters after Yelichs homer.He got through six innings pretty easy, really, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. We didnt get much going on with him as the game progressed.Nova downplayed any suggestion of the Pirates playing the role of spoiler.No, you want to finish strong, he said after helping the Pirates improve to 10-5 against the Brewers this season. It dont matter who you are facing, you just want to finish strong. You want to get the job done.Colin Moran hit a tying RBI double in the second. Pittsburgh scored its final run in the sixth when Starling Marte doubled and came around when Josh Bell stole his first base since June 22 last year, and catcher Erik Kratzs throwing bounced into center field for an error.Davies (2-6), who had two stints on the disabled list this season caused by right rotator cuff inflammation, made his third start since his latest return to the majors and allowed two runs, three hits and a walk.Rookie Richard Rodriguez pitched the seventh, Kyle Crick followed in the eighth and Felipe Vazquez allowed a pair of singles in the ninth before retiring Mike Moustakas on a lineout and Domingo Santana on a flyout Yunel Escobar Jersey , and then striking out Jonathan Schoop. Vazquez has 33 saves in 37 chances, including the longest active streak in the major leagues at 23.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: Reliever Keone Kela wont pitch again this season. The right-hander worked a scoreless inning in his last appearance on Sept. 3 at Atlanta. His 52 innings are the most since a career-high 60 1/3 in 2015. Enough has been accomplished, Hurdle said of Kelas high-leverage situations and workload. C Elias Diaz has not played since leaving the game in Atlanta on Aug. 31 with right hamstring discomfort. He has begun running the bases.Brewers: RHP Jimmy Nelson, on the 60-day DL after right shoulder surgery, is to pitch batting practice at the Brewers complex in Phoenix.DOUBLE EJECTIONCervelli was at the plate at the time and reacted angrily to a called third strike by plate umpire Tripp Gibson. Both Cervelli and Pirates manager Clint Hurdle were ejected. Hurdle ran out of the dugout to separate Cervelli and Gibson, and crew chief Brian Gorman kept Hurdle away from Gibson as Cervelli finally left the field.STATS LINEYelich became the ninth player in Brewers franchise history to hit 30 home runs and score 100 runs in a season and the first since Ryan Braun did it in 2012.Yelich has reached in 30 consecutive games, the longest current streak in the NL.UP NEXTBrewers RHP Jhoulys Chacin (14-7, 3.54 ERA) is 0-2 with a 2.28 ERA in four starts against Pittsburgh this season. Pirates RHP Trevor Williams (12-9, 3.28 ERA) is 3-0 in his last four road starts going into Sunday and has not allowed a run in three of the four BALTIMORE (AP) During a season already littered with poor pitching performances and lopsided defeats, the Baltimore Orioles altered the script with an impressive display of pitching, offense and defense.Dwight Smith Jr. hit a three-run homer, one of four long balls off Ivn Nova, and Baltimore overpowered the Chicago White Sox 9-1 Tuesday night to end a four-game skid.Renato Nez, Chris Davis and Joey Rickard also connected for the Orioles, who improved their home record to 2-10 before a cozy, appreciative crowd of 8 Martin Maldonado Jersey ,953.Andrew Cashner (4-1) gave up one run, five hits and a walk over seven innings to win his fourth straight decision. Just as important, he provided much needed rest to a bullpen that was drained in a 12-2 loss to Chicago one night earlier.That was a veteran pitcher on the mound, knowing what our club needed and delivering, manager Brandon Hyde said.The defense was stellar, too.Returning from a one-day absence with a strained quad, Smith made a perfectly timed, high-flying catch at the wall in left field to rob Adam Engel of a two-run homer in the second inning. One inning later, right fielder Trey Mancini made a leaping, backhand grab of a liner by Jos Abreu.We played really well all three phases tonight, Hyde said. One of our better efforts of the year.Nova (0-3) yielded nine runs over four innings. Obtained in an offseason trade with Pittsburgh, the right-hander has an 8.42 ERA over five starts and has given up 11 hits in each of his last two outings.I missed location with all my pitches tonight, he said. I threw the ball out over the plate a lot and I got hit.After Nez hit a solo shot in the third, Rio Ruiz singled and Davis hit his second home run of the season the first at home since Aug. 24 for a 4-0 lead.In the fourth, Smith followed singles by Jonathan Villar and Mancini with a long drive to right , and Rickard connected one out later with a man on.That would be Novas final inning.We needed him to give us some innings http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-jersey , but it was a pretty offensive fourth for them, manager Rick Renteria said. He had driven his pitch count up and at that point we needed to settle everything down.Renteria remains hopeful that Nova will get on track.Obviously he got into a little trouble tonight, had quite a few misses, the manager said. A tough day, one Im sure he will put behind him.The White Sox offense wasnt much better. Chicagos lone run came on a sixth-inning RBI single by Tim Anderson.Coming into the game, Baltimore surrendered a major league-high 59 homers and hit only 26. On this night, the Orioles turned it around.Weve shown some flashes of being really good in some certain areas and I just think weve been really inconsistent, Cashner said. If we can be more consistent, well be a pretty good ballclub.LEARNING ON THE JOBHyde went to the postseason four straight years before becoming a rookie manager with the Orioles, and now hes trying to make something good happen in Baltimore. Were trying to develop winning players, Hyde said. Were just scratching the surface. Weve had a lot of guys who havent won in the big leagues and havent had a ton of success in the big leagues. But we believe in them and were going to stay with them.TRAINERS ROOMWhite Sox: Leadoff hitter Leury Garcia was rested by Renteria, who inserted Yoan Moncada atop the batting order.Orioles: RHP Nate Karns (forearm strain) threw a side session Tuesday and hopes to resume his rehabilitation stint with Triple-A Norfolk this week.UP NEXTWhite Sox: RHP Ervin Santana (0-1, 10.38 ERA) works the series finale Wednesday night. Hes seeking his 150th career victory and first with Chicago after signing as a free agent in February.Orioles: LHP John Means (2-2, 1.72) plays the role of an opener for the third time this season. He lost his previous two starts despite allowing only a total of two earned runs in eight innings.
