Pirates 6, Brewers 3: A long stretch of games and an early-morning arrival lead to a rough loss

PITTSBURGH - Until showing some life in the final inning, the Milwaukee Brewers played like a tired team Thursday night. The listless Brewers had good reason to look weary in falling to Pittsburgh, 6-3, at PNC Park. After losing in 12 innings the previous evening in Miami, the team didn't get to their hotel here until nearly 5 a.m. The Brewers also were playing on their 17th consecutive day, with three more to go – including a doubleheader Saturday – before finally hitting the all-star break. They knew this would be a grueling stretch and had done quite well until this final first-half trip, which has resulted in three losses in the first four games against losing reams.
