Hard to believe there was baseball tonight. I was out, so I missed it, but the Pirates lost 10-7 to the Brewers despite homers from Neil Walker, Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen, as James McDonald walked five batters and got chased after 4.2 innings. The two teams were tied at six after the seventh inning, but in the bottom of the eighth, Tony Watson gave up two ground-ball singles and an intentional walk, then allowed an improbable grand slam to the light-hitting Cody Ransom, putting the Brewers up 10-6.
