By JOHN PERROTTO Associated Press
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kevin Newman tied a major league record with four doubles and the Pittsburgh Pirates rolled over the Milwaukee Brewers 14-4 to snap their eight-game losing streak in the first game of a doubleheader.
Newman doubled in each inning from the third through the sixth in the seven-inning game.
He also scored four times.
Newman's third double drove in two to spark a six-run fifth that included Bryan Reynolds' two-run homer.
That outburst broke the game open, giving the Pirates a 12-4 lead.
