Aug. 14, 2011 at 5:58 PM

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Nyjer Morgan's sacrifice fly in the 10th inning Sunday completed a Milwaukee rally that carried the Brewers to a 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh.

Trailing 1-0 since the first inning, the Brewers finally pushed across the tying run in the bottom of the eighth, when Ryan Braun's two-out single scored pinch runner Jerry Hairston Jr. from second.

Then in the 10th, George Kottaras delivered a one-out single off Chris Resop (3-4), moved to third on Casey McGehee's double and scored when Morgan sent a deep fly to right-center field.

The run handed National League Central-leading Milwaukee a three-game sweep of the Pirates and raised its major league-best home record to 44-15.

Takashi Saito (3-1) earned the win with a scoreless top of the 10th while Brewers starter Shaun Marcum hurled 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball, allowing five hits.

Bucs starter Charlie Morton limited the Brewers to one run on four hits over 7 1/3 frames.
