Brewers 4, Pirates 2
MILWAUKEE — Aramis Ramirez hit a two-run homer to back Wily Peralta, and the Brewers extended their winning streak to seven. Francisco Liriano befuddled the Brewers for three innings before Ramirez sent a 1-and-2 fastball over the leftfield wall for a 2-0 lead. At 8-2, the Brewers are off to their best start since opening with 13 wins in 1987. Peralta allowed four hits in seven innings but gave up a two-run homer to Neil Walker.
