Pirates Win on Walk-off Walk

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Russell Martin drew a bases-loaded walk from Tony Cingrani with two outs in the 12th inning and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 Thursday and avoided a three-game sweep.

Devin Mesoraco hit a solo homer off Pirates closer Jason Grilli with one out in the ninth, tying it at 3.

In the Pittsburgh 12th, Gaby Sanchez singled with one out and moved up on a balk by Cingrani (2-8). Josh Harrison was intentionally walked and Clint Barmes was hit by a pitch with two outs, loading the bases.

Martin drew his walk-off walk on a 3-1 pitch. Normally a starter, Cingrani was Cincinnati's seventh pitcher of the game.

Justin Wilson (2-0) retired the Reds in order in the top of the 12th.
