MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers topped their crowd-pleasing Christian Yelich bobblehead giveaway with another surprise gift http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-marcell-ozuna-jersey , thanks to Mike Moustakas.Moustakas launched a homer that won a new SUV for a fan, Yelich hit his major league-leading 24th home run and the Brewers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 Sunday for a three-game sweep.“That homer won us the game and somebody a car, which is pretty cool,” Yelich said.Article continues below ...Moustakas connected for his 20th homer off Francisco Liriano (1-1). The tiebreaking, two-run drive in the eighth inning hit the roof of a metallic gray SUV, a promotional vehicle perched above the right-center field fence. One lucky fan got the same model to go along with their Yelich bobblehead.“That was a first time for me,” Moustakas said. “Definitely something I am going to remember for a long time.”Moustakas was just as shocked as the fan holding the winning ticket.“I didn’t know that I actually won somebody a car until afterwards,” Moustakas said. “You came to ballgame and leave with a car is pretty cool.”The Brewers said season ticketholder Mark Gruber was the fortunate fan. He’ll get the keys to his new SUV in a pregame presentation before the team’s next date at Miller Park on June 20 against Cincinnati.Liriano said he didn’t execute the way he wanted and it cost him.“I hit that one pretty good,” Moustakas said of the 1-0 pitch that got away from Liriano. “I haven’t had too much success against Liriano in my career. Faced him a ton. Just looking for a good pitch to put a ball in play. Fortunately, got one and put a good swing on it.”Liriano knew he made a mistake.“I just missed my spot,” he said after the Pirates lost their fifth straight to the Brewers. “I walked (Yasmani) Grandal, then Moustakas put a good swing on it.”Orlando Arcia hit a sacrifice fly off Geoff Hartlieb to finish the scoring in the eighth.Jeremy Jeffress (1-0) pitched the eighth. Josh Hader struck out the side in the ninth for his 16th save and moved the Brewers a season-high 10 games over .500.The sellout crowd cheered each time Yelich came to the plate, but had little to celebrate until the sixth. Yelich kept the ballpark rocking when he hit the first pitch from starter Steven Brault into the party porch in right.“That guy is on a different planet,” Moustakas said.Brault went a career-best 6 1/3 innings and struck out five. He turned over a 2-1 lead with one out in the sixth to Richard Rodriguez Orlando Cepeda Jersey , and pinch-hitter Ben Gamel greeted him with an RBI single that made it 2-all.Brault planned to use a four-seamer and a sinker as his primary pitches against the Brewers.“We’re going to attack these guys and see what happens,” he said. “That was the main goal.”Jung Ho Kang, reinstated on Saturday from the 10-day injured list after being out with a left side strain, hit a two-run homer in the first off Chase Anderson.The 457-foot drive was Kang’s fifth home run of the season.Pirates rookie Bryan Reynolds extended his hitting streak to 17 games with an infield single in the first. He also singled in the eighth.Anderson allowed two runs on four hits over six innings in his first start since a 16-0 drubbing by the Miami Marlins on Tuesday. In that game, he allowed four runs on seven hits, including three home runs, in four innings.TRAINER’S ROOMPirates: GM Neal Huntington said RHP Trevor Williams (right side strain) and RHP Chris Stratton (right side discomfort) were ready for a rehab start probably at Triple-A Indianapolis.Brewers: RHP Jhoulys Chacín (lower back strain) threw a bullpen session before the game. Manager Craig Counsell that it’s possible that Chacín could make a start during the road trip. … LHP Gio González (left arm) played catch the last two days and starts throwing again Monday, but his return is farther off.YELICH HITS THEM EARLY IN THE COUNTYelich has now hit eight home runs on the first pitch and 17 have come within the first two pitches of an at-bat. Both are tops in the majors. Dating to last season’s All-Star break, 31 of his 49 homers (63 percent) have come on either the first or second pitch of an at-bat.COUNSELL ON JURY DUTYBrewers manager Craig Counsell was notified by Milwaukee County that he may be called for jury duty.UP NEXTPirates: RHP Joe Musgrove (4-6, 4.44 ERA) makes his 13th start this season and fourth career against the Atlanta Braves, facing RHP Kevin Gausman (2-5, 6.15 ERA) in the opener of a four-game road series.Brewers: RHP Freddy Peralta (3-2, 5.11 ERA) makes his 12th appearance, eighth start of the season and first against the Astros in the opener of an eight-game Keith Hernandez Jersey , nine-day road trip to Houston, San Francisco and San Diego. The New York Yankees (98-61) will wrap up the regular season with a potential playoff preview on Friday, when they visit the Boston Red Sox (107-52) as small road favorites. The Yankees still have something to play for, as they are hoping to clinch home-field advantage in the American League Wild Card Game against the Oakland Athletics, while the Red Sox could then meet them in the AL Division Series.MLB betting line: The Yankees opened as -130 favorites (wager $130 to win $100); the total is at nine runs, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.

Happ (16-6, 3.57 ERA) to the mound in a huge spot. Happ has not lost as a member of the Yankees, going a perfect 6-0 with a 2.18 ERA in 10 starts for them and giving up three runs or less nine times during that stretch. Surprisingly, Happ is 0-1 in three outings versus Boston this season despite posting a minuscule 0.54 ERA in 16.2 innings of work. One of the main reasons he was acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays was his mastery of the Red Sox, going 4-0 with a 1.98 ERA in eight starts the previous three years.Why the Red Sox Can Pay on the MLB LinesBoston has gone 9-7 against New York in the first 16 meetings between the teams this season http://www.stlouiscardinalsteamshop.com/authentic-marcell-ozuna-jersey , according to the OddsShark MLB Database, and would love nothing more than for Oakland to have home-field advantage in the wild-card matchup.Five of the nine wins in this year's series for the Red Sox took place in seven games played between August and September, when the Yankees still had hopes of winning the division.Boston will counter Happ with southpaw Brian Johnson (4-4, 4.11 ERA), who has started in just 12 of his 37 outings. In his past three relief appearances, he has allowed only one run and three hits in 7.2 innings, walking six batters and striking out five. Smart Betting PickNew York is rightfully favored here, and Happ could easily end up starting the AL Wild Card Game as the team's most reliable pitcher. The magic number for the Yankees to clinch home field over the A's is one, and this is the game to do it. Look for New York to get off to a strong start and cruise to an easy victory.MLB Betting TrendsNew York is 5-2 in its past seven games.The total has gone over in four of New York's past five games.The total has gone over in six of Boston's past eight games.All MLB odds and betting trends according to Bleacher Report's official odds partner, OddsShark.
