Thames homers twice, Brewers move into tie for top wild card

MILWAUKEE (AP) Eric Thames and Orlando Arcia had been hushed at the plate during the Milwaukee Brewers' crucial homestand. They made some noise Sunday.

Thames hit two home runs, Arcia also connected and the Brewers took a combined perfect game into the seventh inning while beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 to match Washington atop the NL wild-card standings.

"That kind of defines this stretch for us," Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said. "It has been different guys offensively. Today, it was two guys who had been a little quiet and that's how it works."
