Norichika Aoki gets three hits and 2 stolen bases in win

PITTSBURGH – Norichika Aoki had three hits and three RBIs with a pair of stolen bases Monday to spearhead the Milwaukee Brewers’ 5-1 win against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Aoki, who also scored twice, helped the Brewers end a four-game slide by driving in the go-ahead run in the fifth with his second double of the night.

It was Milwaukee’s second win in 11 games in May.

Aoki also knocked in runs in the seventh and ninth. He had been hitting a torrid .389 in his previous 10 games, and increased his average to .299 on the year.

“I’m glad I could help us end the losing streak,” Aoki said. “I managed to hit when we really needed it. They were crucial runs that decided the game.”

“I’m swinging the bat really well right now, and it feels good to have something to show for it.”
