MILWAUKEE (AP) — After giving up the go-ahead runs in the top of the 15th Chris Sale Jersey , Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Jordan Lyles took advantage of a chance to redeem himself in the bottom of the inning.Left in the game to bat and with his team trailing by two runs, Lyles drew a two-out walk off Pittsburgh Pirates reliever Clay Holmes to load the bases and set the stage for dramatic rally as Milwaukee eked out a 7-6 victory.“He did a good job standing there,” Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said of Lyles. “That was his job. I just said, ‘Don’t swing.'”Lyles said he knew Holmes was struggling to spot his pitches.“I was going to give him the first strike and then (Counsell) was going to let me know if we were going to continue to take. A couple close pitches in there, but I had the take sign, so I wasn’t swinging.”After the walk to Lyles, Erik Kratz tied the game with a two-run single off Holmes (1-3). Orlando Arcia followed with a walk-off single and was mobbed on the field by his teammates as he put an end to the 5-hour, 36-minute contest.“After he walked the pitcher, I knew the pressure was on (Holmes), it wasn’t on me,” Arcia said through team translator Carlos Brizuela. “I just looked for a good pitch to put in play.”The Pirates had taken a 6-4 lead in the top of the 15th. Francisco Cervelli’s bloop single with two outs drove in the go-ahead run. A second run scored after Brewers second baseman Jonathan Schoop booted the ball as Cervelli’s hit fell softly into short right field.In the Brewers’ half of the inning, Jesus Aguilar drew a one-out walk and moved to second on a wild pitch. After Hernan Perez walked, Ryan Braun struck out. Lyles then walked , bringing Kratz to the plate.Lyles (3-4), the ninth Milwaukee pitcher, got the win.The Pirates tied the score in the ninth on Starling Marte’s two-out, run-scoring single off Jeremy Jeffress, who blew his fifth save of the season on a day when the Brewers sent struggling former All-Star closer Corey Knebel to the minors.The Brewers grabbed the lead in the first when Christian Yelich hit a towering two-run home run off Pittsburgh starter Joe Musgrove that caromed off the center-field scoreboard.Mike Moustakas’s two-out, two-run homer into the second deck in right field extended the lead to 4-0 in the first.The Pirates cut the lead in half in the second on Adam Frazier’s broken-bat, two-run single off Wade Miley.Pittsburgh pulled within a run in the sixth on Gregory Polanco’s sacrifice fly off reliever Josh Hader.Steven Brault pitched four hitless innings of relief for the Pirates.The Brewers halted a five-game losing streak to Pittsburgh.“It’s not the way you want to finish, for sure,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said.KNEBEL DEMOTEDThe Brewers demoted ex-closer and 2017 All-Star Knebel to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday to work on his mechanics. The right-hander has a 7.24 ERA since the All-Star break that has raised his season ERA to 5.08. In his last seven appearances, Knebel is 0-2 with an 11.37 ERA.“It’s not easy and we don’t have a lot of time left to make adjustments,” Counsell said. “But we thought the best chance for us to get Corey throwing the ball well again is to give him this break, give him some time to work.”NO DEALGeneral manager David Stearns declined to comment on reports that the Brewers had claimed Cincinnati Reds pitcher Matt Harvey on revocable waivers but failed to come to terms on a trade. “There are a lot of players being put on waivers. We’ve certainly claimed some,” Stearns said.FIRST HITPirates second baseman Kevin Newman got his first major league hit Tyler Thornburg Jersey , a double to left in the second.GOOD TO BADYelich’s night started out well. His first-inning homer, his 22nd of the season, set a career single-season best and extended his hitting streak to 10 games. Then it got ugly as he grounded into three double plays and struck out twice while going hitless in his final six at-bats.TRAINER’S ROOMPirates: Reinstated INF/OF Sean Rodriguez (strained left abdominal muscle) from the 10-day disabled list. He pinch-hit in the 11th. … 2B Josh Harrison (strained left hamstring) didn’t start for the fourth consecutive game but entered the game in the ninth. … SS Jordy Mercer (strained left calf) remained out of the lineup.Brewers: Reinstated RHP Joakim Soria (right adductor strain) and RHP Zach Davies (rotator cuff inflammation and back stiffness) from the 10-day DL.

Franklin is on the 60-day DL (right quad strain). … OF Lorenzo Cain remained in the game after being hit in the left shoulder by an Edgar Santana fastball in the seventh.UP NEXTPirates: Jameson Taillon (9-9, 3.58 ERA) is 2-4 with a 3.42 ERA in nine career starts against Milwaukee, including 1-1 in three starts this season.Brewers: Jhoulys Chacin (13-4) will make his team-leading 28th start.

As the New York Mets look for their next general manager, they have narrowed the search down to two candidates: agentBrodie Van Wagenen and Tampa Bay Rays executive Chaim Bloom.Per Andy Martino of,Van Wagenen is in "very strong position" to win the job, but Bloom remains in the running.The Athletic'sKenRosenthalalso noted that his "sense" is the Mets will go withVanWagenen.Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reported Van Wagenen is the "significant favorite" and that the job is "his if he wants it."Anthony DiComo of recently broke down the list of finalists:Longtime MLB general manager Doug Melvin was eliminated from the race Thursday, according toNewsday'sTimHealey, making it a two-person field.While other candidates have experience working in front offices around baseball, VanWagenenis the co-head of the baseball division atCAASports. He represents high-profile Mets such asJacobdeGrom,NoahSyndergaard,YoenisCespedesand Todd Frazier.New York may view the 44-year-oldVanWagenenas a qualified candidate , but others believe including an agent in the process could create a conflict of interest.Agent ScottBorastoldMike Pumaof theNew York Postearlier this week he has previously passed up opportunities to avoid any potential issues:"TheBorasCorporation stands for a total commitment to players, and while I have been offered many opportunities with teams, I would never violate the trust that I have with any player, and that is very important to what I do. I am an attorney, and I want [players] to tell me everything, and a lot of these things are confidential, they are personal, and if I went to work for a different employer, I would have to divulge all that information because I have to do my job for that other employer I made a commitment to."VanWagenendownplayed any concerns, per Puma:"In my role as an agent, my solution is to create opportunities for players to be successful both on and off the field. By creating partnerships between players and teams, the interests of all parties can be aligned. If the players are able to reach their peak potential, the fans will be rewarded with a competitive team that can contend for championships year in and year out. The clubs benefit with compelling Roger Clemens Jersey , sustainable and profitable entertainment franchises; and the players are rewarded with a platform to realize their childhood dreams while receiving compensation consistent with their tremendous talents."My conversations with the Mets continue to be organic. I believe baseball is better when the Mets are competitive and successful. That success is better for the fans, players and the economy of the sport. As Jeff and Fred [Wilpon] continue their search for a new head of baseball operations, the players, fans and entire organization will be motivated to have a leader with the skills and commitment to win. If theWilponsbelieve I am that person, we will have that conversation."According toUSA Today'sGabeLacques, VanWagenenraised the question of collusion by teams last offseason and threatened a player boycott of spring training.Meanwhile, there are no such concerns with Bloom. The 35-year-old has spent the last 14 years within the Tampa Bay Rays organization, working his way from intern tosenior vice president of baseball operations. His most recent roles included being involved inplayer development, scouting and trade negotiations, according to the Rays'official website.A decision is not expected until Monday at the earliest.
