Pirates Beat Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (AP) – JT Brubaker struck out eight in six impressive innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates extended their recent surge by beating the Milwaukee Brewers 6-1. Colin Moran and Gregory Polanco homered for the Pirates, who have followed a six-game skid by winning five of seven. Adam Frazier added a two-run triple. Brubaker yielded one run and four hits, lowering his ERA to 1.76 in three starts this season. The right-hander didn’t walk anybody, though he did hit three batters. Adrian Houser allowed three runs in 4 1/3 innings, ending Milwaukee’s franchise-record streak of eight straight games in which its starting pitchers worked at least five innings while allowing no more than one run.

Pirates Place Feliz On Injured List

The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed RHP Michael Feliz on the 10 day injured list. Feliz cracked a nail on his right middle finger. In a move to fill Feliz’s spot on the roster, RHP Sean Poppen has been recalled to the active roster. Poppen was claimed off waivers from Minnesota in October of 2020. Poppen made six relief appearances for the Twins in 2020.

Lawyer For Donald Says He Tried To Help

PITTSBURGH (AP) – The lawyer for Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald says witnesses and surveillance video refute a man’s claim the player assaulted him at a Pittsburgh nightclub last weekend. Attorney Casey White said Friday the video indicates Donald didn’t assault anyone but was trying to save the victim, De’Vincent Spriggs. The station aired black-and-white video that shows about a dozen men and a melee. White says five witnesses say Donald helped pull people away. Spriggs’ lawyer Todd Hollis has said Donald and others assaulted Spriggs, causing multiple injuries that required hospital treatment. Police are investigating but no charges have been filed.

Cink’s 63 puts him on top

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) – Two-time champion Stewart Cink has moved into position for a third RBC Heritage title, shooting a second straight 63 to set the 36-hole scoring mark at Harbour Town. The 47-year-old Cink has played his first two rounds at 16-under 126, five strokes better than Corey Conners. The previous best midway score was 129, set by Jack Nicklaus en route to victory in 1975 and matched by Phil Mickelson, who wound up third in 2002. Conners and Emiliano Grillo each fired 64s on Friday. Grillo is six back.
