Milwaukee bounced back after losing 9-8 to the Pirates the previous night. Prince Fielder hit three home runs in one game for the first time in his career.

Rickie Weeks also homered. John Axford pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 46th save.

The Pirates’ offense managed 10 hits, including 4 RBIs from Alex Presley, Josh Harrison, Matt Pagnozzi and Ohlendorf.

Neil Walker had two hits and Derek Lee had one.

LaTroy Hawkins (3-1) took the win, and Jared Hughes (0-1) was charged with the loss.
