MILWAUKEE -- Pedro Alvarez hit two home runs, Andrew McCutchen also went deep, and Jeff Locke pitched six shutout innings to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday. Neil Walker added a solo home run for the Pirates, who won for a second time in Milwaukee this season, but for only the ninth time since 2007 at Miller Park -- against 47 losses. Locke (5-1) gave up three hits and struck out a season-high seven, to win his fourth straight game. It was the second straight game he didnt give up a run. Mike Fiers (1-3), starting in place of Kyle Lohse (elbow), lasted four innings, giving up four runs, including three home runs, and five hits. Carlos Gomez homered twice for Milwaukee. Milwaukee is 5-17 in May and has not won back-to-back games since April 29-30 at home against Pittsburgh. The Pirates grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning as McCutchen hit his seventh home run. It was McCutchens fourth home run off Fiers during his career. Pittsburgh increased its lead to 3-0 in the second inning. After a single by Walker, Alvarez hit his ninth home run to the right field corner. Walkers second home run of the year to the second deck in right field in the fourth inning increased Pittsburghs lead to 4-0. Gomez hit his seventh home run of the year leading off the seventh inning off Pirates reliever Justin Wilson to cut Pittsburghs lead to 4-1. Alvarez added his 10th leading off the ninth inning, a towering shot to the top of the second level in right field. Gomez hit his second home run of the game in the ninth inning to trim the lead to 5-2. It was Gomezs first career multi-home run game. Notes: Brewers closer Jim Henderson was to see a doctor Saturday and will be out "a while," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. Henderson injured his right hamstring Friday while delivering a pitch that led to the second out in the ninth inning. He gave way to Francisco Rodriguez, who earned a save in the Brewers 2-1 win . Pirates infielder John McDonald, who was put on the 15-day disabled list May 15 with a lower back strain, will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday at Triple A Indianapolis .

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics are staying put under new leadership and determined to find the right location for an intimate new ballpark that brings together the community with a great vibe for fans. One that will be privately funded and, in time, increase revenue and improve the on-field product.Its a big, bold plan. Committed new team President Dave Kaval just pulled off something similar in his other job: Building the San Jose Earthquakes second-year, state-of-the art Avaya Stadium, which just so happens to boast the largest outdoor bar in North America.Kaval is eager to get started evaluating several sites, communicate with city and business leaders and even open his office for two hours a week to anyone who wants to chat about the plan for this low-budget franchise.I know theyre starving for a place to call home, Kaval, also president of the MLS Earthquakes, said Thursday when he was formally introduced.He envisions a unique venue that honors the As winning past with statues of Hall of Famers Rickey Henderson and Reggie Jackson.Lew Wolff is selling all but a small stake in the As and giving up his managing partner role, turning it over to John Fisher.Wolff will become chairman emeritus and Fisher the managing partner. In addition, prior team President Michael Crowley is stepping away from day-to-day operations after nearly 20 years in the role but will advise the As ownership group. Kaval fills Crowleys position while also keeping his same position with the MLS team but focusing the majority of his time now on the As ballpark plan while restructuring his leadership team with the Quakes.Baseball owners approved the leadership transition for Oakland during meetings Thursday in Chicago. Wolff and Fisher bought the As on April 1, 2005.I am pleased my dear friend of almost 25 years, John Fisher, will be even more involved, Wolff wrote in an email to The Associated Press. I will miss Mike Crowley, who has contributed so much to the As, and I welcome my ?somewhat newer friend, Dave Kaval, who will bring lots of talent and energy to the As. And, I will be able to watch games with a slight degree of less stress, not much but a little!Wolff had been committed to keeping the As in Oakland but previously wannted to move the team to San Jose and build a new ballpark.dddddddddddd Former Commissioner Bud Selig never ruled on whether the As could move into the San Francisco Giants cherished territory in technology-rich Silicon Valley. New Commissioner Rob Manfred said last month he would like to see the club stay put.Look, I think that John has been really engaged for over a year on the stadium project, Manfred said Thursday in Chicago. Hes made it his project. Hes really focused on Oakland as a result of some direction Ive given him with respect to my view of that market.While the NBA Golden State Warriors are planning for a new arena in San Francisco and the NFL Raiders are looking to relocate to Las Vegas, the As could be it for the East Bay.Whats critical is we need to find a place to bring this community together, Kaval said. The other teams look like they might be leaving. We might be the only team left.Manfred hinted at change when he spoke during the NL Division Series between the Cubs and Giants at San Franciscos AT&T Park, saying more would be known about the As situation soon. Manfred noted that Fisher has become more heavily involved in the ballpark planning and has made multiple trips to New York to meet with Manfred and MLB.In addition, Manfred said Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf told him the city is committed to keeping the As in town -- and Kaval will meet with her and other key leaders soon.The small-budget As won consecutive AL West titles in 2012 and `13, losing in five games of the division series to the Detroit Tigers in both years. But they still consider a new ballpark the top priority to be a regular contender. Oaklands payroll of $87 million, pending award bonuses and adjustments, is above only Tampa Bay and Milwaukee.The run-down Coliseum, shared with the Raiders and the last venue with both Major League Baseball and football, had multiple sewage problems in 2013 that caused damage during games.For now, Kaval wants to improve the fan experience at the Coliseum.I know its maybe lipstick on a pig, he said.---AP Sports Writer Jay Cohen in Chicago contributed to this report.
