Reds lose 2-run single, but recover to beat Pirates 5-4
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Alex Gonzalez scored from first base on Ken
Griffey Junior's pop-fly single that fell among three Pirates
fielders in the ninth inning, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the
Pittsburgh Pirates 5-4 tonight.
The Reds overcame a fourth-inning baserunning error in which
Adam Dunn missed third base. Umpires called Dunn out and took back
the two runs that had scored on the play.
Jose Bautista hit a two-run homer in the seventh that put the
Pirates up 4-3, but the Reds tied it up an inning later on Edwin
Encarnacion's RBI single.
Jared Burton got the win for Cincinnati.
Matt Capps took the loss for Pittsburgh.
