Brewers 4, Pirates 1
Jeff Suppan allowed an early solo homer Sunday, but settled in. (Morry Gash/AP)
On Jeff Suppan Bobblehead Day, the veteran right-hander was able to notch his first MLB win since June 12. Suppan's effort allowed the Brewers to break a 1-1 tie in the fifth with a three-run rally, and, as a result, they swept the Pirates for their 21st win against them at Miller Park.
