Brewers beat Pirates to delay winning season

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Pirates ace Francisco Liriano lasted only three innings and the Milwaukee Brewers pounded out a 9-3 victory Wednesday night to delay Pittsburgh from clinching its first winning season since 1992.

Liriano (15-7), who had allowed five earned runs in his previous four starts, was rocked for seven runs on seven hits, with two walks and two costly wild pitches. The Pirates, aiming for their 82nd victory, twice left the bases loaded and stranded 12 runners.

The Brewers tagged Liriano for five runs on five hits in the third inning to open a 7-2 lead.

Peralta (9-14) allowed three runs on nine hits in six innings, striking out six and walking one.

Pirates All-Star Jason Grilli, who had been sidelined with a right forearm strain, pitched the eighth for his first appearance since July 22.
