MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson lost the game and his manager lost the argument in the fourth inning. Texas Rangers Shirts .Sean Rodriguez hit a home run and a two-run single, Andrew McCutchen went deep and rookie Chad Kuhl pitched six strong innings and the Milwaukee Brewers lost 4-1 to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night.Nelson couldnt stop the Pirates from winning their sixth straight at Miller Park, and sixth of seven overall to improve to 76-75. Pittsburgh began the day 4 1/2 games behind San Francisco for the second NL wild card spot. The Pirates also have to hurdle the St. Louis Cardinals and Miami Marlins, too.McCutchen helped the Pirates jump out to an early lead for the second consecutive game. He crushed a 2-2 pitch that just slipped by the left-field foul pole for his 24th home run. Tuesday, he hit a two-run double in the first.I thought it was going foul, but it didnt, Nelson said. It was a good fast ball down and away. It ran up and in. I was impressed that he got to it. He did a good job of squaring up on a mistake right there.Rodriguezs two-run single finished the scoring in the first off Nelson (8-15) and extended his hitting streak to 10 games. Rodriguez victimized Nelson again when he hit his 18th home run of the season in the fourth.He just didnt make pitches, Counsell said. He lost his command a little bit. The big thing was the walk to Cervelli and falling behind to Rodriguez, thats what ended up hurting him. Thats what ends up costing you the game.Its been a puzzling season for Nelson.He was 5-3 in his first 11 starts, but the loss to Pittsburgh dropped his record to 3-12 in his last 20 starts. He put his team in a 3-0 hole in the first and then labored through the next four innings before being pulled for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the fifth.Counsell was ejected by home plate umpire Jerry Lane with two out in the top of the fourth inning.Adam Frazier had just fouled off a pitch from Nelson that bounced over his foot, out of the box and carried to first baseman Christ Carter who stepped on the bag for the apparent third out. Frazier looked puzzled and stayed put at the plate, but when the Brewers started off the field, Lane signaled foul ball.Counsell came out to argue with Lane.Overall, what upset me was he just missed the call, Counsell said. I felt like he changed his call. More than anything, I felt like he changed his call.Second baseman Scooter Gennett noticed the hesitation in Lanes call.Usually when a guy fouls a ball off his foot, the guy says it right away, Gennett said. He (Lane) kind of waited for the whole play to develop and then called it foul.Counsell finished and walked back toward the dugout, but then turned back for some final thoughts. Lane and Counsell became animated in their discussion before Lane ejected Counsell. First base umpire Hunter Wendelstedt ushered Counsell to the dugout.Kuhl (5-3) pitched two-hit ball through the fourth before the Brewers manufactured a run on Jonathan Villars two-out single in the fifth. Kuhl struck out six and walked one in his second career start against the Brewers.The win was much better result than the last time he faced the Brewers.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: LF Starling Marte missed his 16th consecutive game with low back discomfort, but pinch hit in the eighth and took a called third strike. He went through another full workout and the club anticipates his return to the field in the near future.Brewers: LF Ryan Braun missed his second consecutive game to be with his wife, Larisa, and their new son, Greyson Joseph. Manager Craig Counsell said that it was possible Braun may be back Thursday for the last of the three-game series with the Pirates. . RHP Taylor Jungmann (0-4, 8.34 ERA) makes his first start since April 28 against the Chicago Cubs when he faces Cincinnati on Saturday. He made the Opening Day roster, but then struggled mightily in his first five starts that he was demoted. Jungmann hasnt allowed a run in 10 appearances since being recalled from Double-A Biloxi on Sept. 6.UP NEXTPirates: RHP Ryan Vogelsong (3-5, 4.87 ERA) makes his 10th start since being reinstated from the disabled list (facial fractures) on Aug. 4. He is unbeaten in his last four starts against the Brewers, including a 5-3 decision this Aug. 26 at Miller Park.Brewers: RHP Chase Anderson (8-11, 4.47) makes his fifth start against the Pirates this season. He is 2-1 with a 2.33 ERA in the four previous outings. Texas Rangers Pro Shop . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. Custom Texas Rangers Jerseys . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft. https://www.cheaprangersbaseball.com/ . Newcastle dominated in the early stages but City weathered the storm and then raised its game in extra time. Negredo broke the deadlock from close range after a simple move in the 99th minute before Dzeko took the ball round goalkeeper Tim Krul to seal the victory in the 105th. WASHINGTON -- Bryce Harper knocked his one-liner as far out of the park as he did his monster home run into the third deck.I was just trying to impress the scouts, Harper said after the Washington Nationals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 8-1 on Wednesday night.Well, almost as far. Harpers towering two-run home run traveled an estimated 451 feet off Bud Norris in the first inning, a rocket that was one of the longest hit at Nationals Park.The reigning National League MVP took a 3-1 fastball from Norris and sent it over the Jackie Robinson sign on the facade in right. Harper said he was just trying to get a good swing on the ball and recalled former manager Matt Williams mantra of, Its not how far, its how many.But this one was far.He didnt miss that one, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. He tried to come up and in and just missed right around thigh high, and thats his nitro zone. Obviously a very good hitter like that, he can put a charge into it.As far as how many, Harper reached 20 home runs for the fourth time in five seasons. He later walked and scored on Wilson Ramos RBI double that was just one part of Washingtons offensive explosion.Ben Revere, Jayson Werth and Anthony Rendon also hit home runs and Trea Turner had an RBI triple and stole home for Washington, which snapped a six-game losing streak to Los Angeles dating to last season. Left-hander Gio Gonzalez (6-8) had one of his best starts of the season, allowing one run on three hits and striking out six in six innings.Manager Dusty Baker said Gonzalez was effectively wild and didnt have a lot of pressure because of the run support he got.Obviously youve got to tip your cap to our offense, Gonzalez said. These guys clobbered the ball today. And Norris wasnt that bad, either. He was out there pitching, attacking the strike zone. But our guys were just going out there, putting good wood on the ball and what a shot by Bryce.Other than Harpers home run, the Nationals were buzzing about Turners second triple in two nights and thhe speedy second basemans steal of home on a botched pickoff attempt in the sixth inning. Fake Rangers Jerseys. t was a big play, Turner said. It was fun. It was exciting.It was an eventful but not so exciting night for Norris (5-8), who gave up six runs on seven hits in five-plus innings before giving way to the bullpen. He struck out eight as part of an inconsistent outing, and it didnt help that he allowed three home runs, including back-to-back from Revere and Werth in the fifth.That did us in right there, Roberts said of the back-to-back homers.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: Roberts said surgery was more of a possibility for LHP Clayton Kershaw after a setback with the herniated disk in his back. ... LHP Alex Wood underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow and is expected to miss eight weeks. ... Roberts said Corey Seager might be back in the lineup Thursday after missing two games with a stomach virus. ... RHP Chris Hatcher was placed on the disabled list with an oblique injury.Nationals: Rendon returned to the lineup after missing two games with the flu. ... INF Stephen Drew was out sick again. ...

Glover only needed four pitches to get through it.For the first time I was actually nervous, Glover said. I dont normally get nervous, but it definitely got the blood pumping.KENDRICK KEEPS IT ALIVEWith his double in the eighth, Dodgers LF Howie Kendrick extended his hitting streak to 12 games. A fly out left him stranded.UP NEXTNationals RHP Stephen Strasburg (13-0, 2.51 ERA) looks to continue his undefeated season against LHP Julio Urias (1-2, 4.95), who gets the ball for the injury-ravaged Dodgers in the series finale.
