Martin, who hit a three-run double during an eight-run sixth inning, finished 3-for-3 with a walk and three runs scored. Jordy Mercer supplied three RBI, including a home run, for the Pirates, who have won four of their last five.

Brandon Cumpton (1-2) earned the win after allowing eight hits and three runs in 5 1/3 innings.

Khris Davis had two RBI for Milwaukee. Kyle Lohse (7-2), who entered the game with wins in his last seven decisions, was pounded for eight runs on nine hits across five-plus frames.

"It was just a bad night all around," Lohse said. "Everything just kind of went their way tonight."

Martin and Pedro Alvarez hit back-to-back singles to start this sixth inning and Jose Tabata's fly ball fell in shallow right, allowing Martin to score from third and chasing Lohse from the game.
