Nyjer Morgan hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th inning Sunday to help Milwaukee complete a three-game series sweep with a 2-1 win.

The Brewers now have won all eight games against the Pirates this season and 12 straight over the last two years at Miller Park. The last time the Pirates won at Miller Park was April 28, 2010. The Pirates have won just two of the team’s last 36 games in Milwaukee.

With one out in the 10th inning, George Kottaras singled to left field and Casey McGehee followed with a double. Morgan then hit the first pitch from Chris Resop to deep right field and Kottaras scored easily for the win.

Takashi Saito pitched a scoreless 10th inning to get the win.

Marco Estrada pitched five innings in a spot start on Saturday, combining with four relievers on a three-hitter, and Yuniesky Betancourt homered to carry Milwaukee.

Saito, LaTroy Hawkins, Francisco Rodriguez and John Axford, who earned his 34th save by working around a leadoff triple in the ninth, completed the shutout.

Estrada (3-8) took the mound for Chris Narveson, who was placed on the disabled list Wednesday with a cut thumb on his throwing hand.

Kevin Correia (12-11), who leads the majors with 10 road wins, lost for the second time this season at Miller Park. Correia worked 6 2-3 innings and allowed seven hits.

Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder hit back-to-back homers and Zack Greinke remained perfect at Miller Park to lift Milwaukee on Friday.

Braun and Fielder homered in the eighth after the Pirates had chased Greinke (11-4) with two runs earlier in the inning.

The 2009 AL Cy Young winner struck out nine and retired 11 straight at one point as Milwaukee maintained its four-game lead over St. Louis in the division.

Milwaukee built a 4-0 lead off Paul Maholm (6-13) before the Pirates rallied, only to have Braun and Fielder answer right back.
