McCutchen, Alvarez lead Pirates over Brewers

Posted: Updated:
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Andrew McCutchen hit his first homer of the season and drove in three runs, Pedro Alvarez had a three-run shot and pinch-hitter Josh Harrison broke a tie with a long ball in the seventh inning as the Pittsburgh Pirates handed the Milwaukee Brewers their first road loss, 11-2 on Thursday night.
   Harrison's two-run drive down the left field line was the second of his career as a pinch hitter. It stared Pittsburgh's nine-run outburst over the seventh and eighth innings that was capped by Alvarez's sixth of the year.
   McCutchen, last year's NL MVP, hit a two-run homer in the first inning in his 57th at-bat.
   Gaby Sanchez also connected while Alvarez, Starling Marte, Russell Martin and Jordy Mercer each had two of the Pirates' 12 hits.
   Edinson Volquez (1-0) gave up two runs in seven innings for his first win with the Pirates, scattering eight hits.
