Abraham Nunez tripled and scored on Dan Miceli's wild pitch, and the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied three times to beat the Cleveland Indians, 7-6, Saturday -- their second 15-inning game in a row.

ST. LOUIS -- CC Sabathia went nine innings for the third consecutive time for his new team, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 3-0, on Wednesday night.

Ryan Braun had four hits, lacking a double for the cycle, and J.J. Hardy hit his 14th homer for the Brewers, who have won seven in a row.

OAKLAND -- Kurt Suzuki couldn't remember the last time he hit a ball so far. "Maybe with an aluminum bat in my hand, but not wood," said Suzuki after his game-winning, three-run home run in the 10th inning lifted the Oakland Athletics to an 8-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. "It felt great. I was hoping it would get to the wall."
