PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Aramis Ramirez had three hits, including his 350th career home run, and drove in four runs as the Milwaukee Brewers edged the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-6 on Tuesday night.

The 16-year veteran third baseman helped stake the Brewers to a 5-0 in the fifth inning, but the Pirates rallied to tie it in the sixth. But Milwaukee pulled out the win when rookie pinch-hitter Caleb Gindl hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning.

With the game tied 6-6, Yuniesky Betancourt hit a one-out double off Bryan Morris (5-7) and took third on Scooter Gennett's single. Gindl then lifted a fly to right that scored Betancourt and gave the Brewers their third victory in four games.

Pittsburgh, which entered the day one-half game behind St. Louis in the NL Central, lost its third in a row.
