Aramis Ramirez had three hits, including his 350th career home run, and drove in four runs as the Milwaukee Brewers edged the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-6 on Tuesday night.

Ramirez helped the Brewers jump out to a 5-0 lead in the fifth, but the Pirates rallied to tie it in the 6th.

The Brewers responded again and won it in the 8th when pinch-hitter Caleb Gindle hit a tie breaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning.

Ramirez hit into a first inning double play, then made up for it with the home run.  His first career home run came as a member of the Pirates at old Three Rivers Stadium back in 1998.  It came off of Brewers left-handed pitcher Scott Karl.

Kyle Lohse wasn’t involved in the decision.  The Brewers gave him the offensive support that he hasn’t had for much of the season.  But Lohse surrendered a career-high 13 hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Jim Henderson pitched out of a 9th inning jam to earn his 12th straight save and 22nd overall.  The Brewers are now 49-0 in games when leading after 8 innings.
