Morgan lifts Brewers over Pirates in extras

Nyjer Morgan hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th winning run, lifting the Brewers to a 2-1 win over the Pirates on Sunday.

The Brewers got four outs because of a wild pitch and rallied to tie the game on Ryan Braun's RBI single in the eighth inning -- the first time they had a runner past second base all day.

Morgan's deep fly ball to right-center off Chris Resop (3-4) scored George Kottaras, who had singled with one out and moved to third on Casey McGehee's double off the right field wall.

The Brewers swept the three-game series and extended their winning streak to 12 straight games over the Pirates, including eight this season. They moved to 36-3 against Pittsburgh at Miller Park since 2007.

Milwaukee also wrapped up an 18-game stretch of playing only NL Central opponents with a 16-2 record.
