Adam Frazier hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the eighth inning, and the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied for an 8-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

A day after blowing a four-run lead in the ninth in what became an 11-inning loss, Pittsburgh delivered a bit of payback thanks to a shaky performance by the Milwaukee bullpen.

Former Altoona Curve standout Cole Tucker went 2-4 for the Pirates as well.

The win moves the Bucs to 2-3 overall and 1-1 at home.

The Pirates will wrap up the series against Milwaukee Wednesday. The rubber match will start at 7:05 p.m.
