MILWAUKEE -

Rickie Weeks hit a three-run homer and had five RBIs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers over the Pittsburgh Pirates 12-8 on Tuesday.

Weeks finished with three hits for the Brewers, who won their ninth straight against Pittsburgh.

They improved to 46-7 at Miller Park vs. the Pirates since the start of 2007, the best home record by any team against a division opponent during that stretch.

Pittsburgh fought back from a 7-3 deficit to grab an 8-7 lead on Starling Marte's three-run homer in the sixth inning. The play initially was ruled a double, but umpires overturned the call after a video replay.

Jean Segura led off the bottom half with his third home run of the season.

Yuniesky Betancourt followed with his sixth homer of the year that gave the Brewers the lead for good, 9-8.

Tom Gorzelanny got his first win of 2013 in relief for the Brewers.
