PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Travis Snider homered for the first time in nine months and drove in three runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates past the reeling Milwaukee Brewers 7-1 on Thursday night.
   Snider finished 3 for 5, including a 458-foot blast off Hiram Burgos (1-2) in the sixth inning that gave the Pirates the lead. The home run sailed over bushes in right-center field at PNC Park, bounced on a sidewalk outside the stadium and landed in the Allegheny River.
   Francisco Liriano (2-0) allowed one run on six hits over 5 2-3 innings, striking out seven and walking three.
   Andrew McCutchen, Starling Marte, Garrett Jones and Russell Martin had two hits for Pittsburgh.
   Burgos gave up three runs in six innings but Milwaukee's offense sputtered. The Brewers have lost 11 of 13.
