Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Andrew McCutchen's solo homer in the bottom of the 12th inning lifted the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 4-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in the second test of a four-game set from PNC Park.

The Pirates spoiled opportunities twice in extras before McCutchen finally led them to victory. He led off the final frame and his blast off Mike Fiers (0-2) just cleared the center field wall, giving Pittsburgh its fourth win in five games.

Vin Mazzaro (2-0) picked up the win by spinning the final two of six scoreless frames for the Pittsburgh bullpen. Starter Jeff Locke struck out six over six innings of work, yielding three runs on seven hits -- the most he's allowed in six starts.

Russell Martin had two doubles and an RBI, while Clint Barmes and Garrett Jones drove in a run apiece in the victory.

Milwaukee fell to 1-4 on its 10-game road trip. Jean Segura hit a solo homer and knocked in two runs while Carlos Gomez contributed a pair of hits and an RBI in the setback.
