The Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Chicago White Sox 6-3 last night at PNC Park. Pirates starting pitcher Tyler Anderson was magnificent in his outing until giving up a pinch-hit three-run home run in the seventh inning that gave the White Sox a 3-2 lead, but the Bucs came right back with four-runs in the bottom of the inning for the victory.
Anderson had allowed just two hits entering the seventh inning before giving up the home run to Yasmani Grandal. Mars native David Bednar closed that seventh inning and earned his first major league victory. Rich Rodriguez earned his ninth save.
The two teams complete the short two-game series today at 12:35pm. WISR will join the game following the Noon News.
Rookie third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes had two walks in the game, and extended his on-base streak to 26 games dating back to last season.
