Brewers use home run barrage to gain ground in NL Central

PITTSBURGH (AP) A long rain delay did not dampen the Milwaukee Brewers' hopes of catching the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central.

Travis Shaw, Mike Moustakas and Erik Kratz homered during a six-run sixth inning, and the Brewers rallied for an 8-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night. Milwaukee trailed 3-1 in the top of the fifth inning when rain stopped play for two hours and 14 minutes.

The Brewers drew within 1 1/2 games of the division-leading Cubs, who lost 10-4 to the crosstown White Sox. Milwaukee leads the NL wild-card standings by three games over the St. Louis Cardinals.
