BY foxsports • September 4, 2016

PITTSBURGH (AP) Struggling rookie Jose Arcia had three hits, including a tiebreaking single in Milwaukee's four-run eighth inning, and the Brewers beat Pittsburgh 7-4 on Saturday night to extend the Pirates' losing streak to five games.

Arcia grounded a bases-loaded single into right field against Felipe Rivero, lifting the Brewers to a 3-2 lead. Pinch hitter Manny Pina followed with a two-run single and Keon Broxton capped the big inning with an RBI single as Milwaukee won its third straight following a six-game losing streak.

Pittsburgh's Neftali Feliz (4-2) was charged with two runs, retiring only one of the three batters before leaving with right arm discomfort.
