BREWERS-PIRATES

Brewers win in 14th after early brawl with Pirates

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Khris Davis delivered the biggest hit in a game interrupted by a punch-filled brawl, homering in the 14th inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers over the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Sunday.

Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez, Pirates outfielder Travis Snider and Milwaukee bench coach Jerry Narron were ejected after the third-inning fracas.

The problems started when Gomez paused at the plate and flipped his bat after hitting a two-out triple. Gerrit, who was near third base backing up the play, stormed toward Gomez and they exchanged words.

Gomez took a couple steps toward Cole before players rushed the field from both dugouts. Milwaukee's Martin Maldonado threw a punch that knocked off Snider's hat.

The Brewers won their third in a row and sent Pittsburgh to its third straight loss.

BREWERS-PIRATES-BRAWL

Gomez, Snider ejected after Brewer-Pirates brawl

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez and Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Travis Snider were ejected Sunday after a shouting match quickly escalated into a full-scale brawl.

Several punches were thrown and a couple of players were tossed to the ground once the benches and bullpens emptied.

The problems started when Gomez paused at the plate and flipped his bat after hitting a two-out drive in the third inning off Pirates starter Gerrit Cole. The ball hit the wall and Gomez sped into third base, making a head-first slide for a triple.

Gerrit, who was near third base backing up the play, stormed toward Gomez and they exchanged words.

Gomez took a couple steps toward Cole before players rushed the field from both dugouts. Milwaukee's Martin Maldonado threw a punch that knocked off Snider's hat.

Snider, who wasn't in the game, and Gomez shoved each other, and the Brewers star fell to the ground. Pirates catcher Russell Martin had to be restrained by teammate Gaby Sanchez as he walked off the field.

Brewers bench coach Jerry Narron also was ejected.

BREWERS MOVES

Brewers put OF Schafer on DL, reinstate Overbay

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Milwaukee Brewers have put outfielder Logan Schafer on the 15-day disabled list and reinstated first baseman Lyle Overbay from the paternity list.

The Brewers made the moves before playing Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Schafer strained his right hamstring while stretching in the on-deck circle prior to a pinch hitting appearance Thursday against the Pirates. The move was made retroactive to April 18.

"They needed guys, and I wasn't going to be able to go in the next few days," Schafer said. "It was the move that had to be made."

The 27-year-old Schafer was hitting .214 with four doubles and two RBIs in 10 games.

Overbay and wife Sarah welcomed their fifth son, Eddie Christian Overbay, on Thursday.
