July 16 2018 1:59 AM

The Pittsburgh Pirates plated two runs in the final frame of the 10th inning to defeat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-5 for a five-game series sweep. 

Gregory Polanco began Pittsburgh's comeback with a one-out single, before Colin Moran's single two batters later pushed Polanco to third in MLB action on Sunday. 

With the Pirates down to their final out in the pouring rain, Josh Bell laced a line drive over the head of Brewers centerfielder Lorenzo Cain for a two-RBI double, securing Pittsburgh's victory. 

Pittsburgh outfielder Corey Dickerson also tallied two RBIs in the game while Brett Phillips drove in four runs for the Brewers in the losing effort. 

The Pirates enter the All-Star break with a 48-49 record after they topped the Brewers in five straight games this week, while Milwaukee fall to 55-43 with Sunday's loss.
