Niese Surrenders Five, Pirates Lose
SEATTLE (AP) - Nelson Cruz hit his 20th home run of the season, Robinson Cano had three hits including an RBI single and the Seattle Mariners beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 on Tuesday night. Cruz and Cano led Seattle's offense, which had 12 hits. Cano's two-out single in the fifth scored Franklin Gutierrez and gave Cruz the opportunity for his two-run homer into the second deck in left field that gave Seattle a 5-0 lead. Cruz became the only current player with at least 20 home runs in every season since 2009. David Ortiz and Brian McCann can also reach that mark this season. Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma (7-6) took a shutout into the seventh inning before giving up a pair of runs. Iwakuma has pitched into the seventh in six of his past seven starts. Jon Niese (6-6) allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings.

More Beer At Pitt Games
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The University of Pittsburgh plans to expand beer sales at its football games at Heinz Field starting this season. Athletic director Scott Barnes says beer will be sold stadium-wide. Previously, only fans sitting in club and suite areas could buy beer. Barnes says beer sales could raise more than $500,000 for the athletic program. The university has studied the idea for more than a year, and has spoken to the 10 other Power 5 conference football programs that allow beer at their home games. Barnes says selling beer is becoming the norm. Barnes also said Pitt was the only college team that shares a stadium with an NFL team that did not sell beer at its games. The Pittsburgh Steelers are the stadium's primary tenant.
