Brewers ward off late Pirates rally bid

(Continued)

PITTSBURGH — Maldonado grounded to third, where Alvarez fielded a ball that’s cover had partially ripped off. Alvarez threw the flapping, awkwardly floating ball toward first, but it fell well short of the bag, giving Maldonado an infield single.

NOTES: Pittsburgh SS Jordy Mercer was removed from the game with what the team called “discomfort” in his right ankle after Maldonado collided with him at second base during the third inning. Mercer stayed in the game the remainder of the inning. ... Less than 15 minutes before first pitch, the Pirates announced they acquired 1B Ike Davis from the New York Mets in exchange for minor-league RHP Zack Thornton and a player to be named. ... The Pirates went homerless after hitting four in an 11-2 win in the series opener Thursday. They entered Friday with 19 homers over their previous nine games. ... Playing each other seven times in a 10-day span, the Pirates and Brewers play the eighth of those meetings Saturday when Pittsburgh LHP Wandy Rodriguez (0-2, 7.31) faces Milwaukee RHP Matt Garza (0-2, 3.43).
