Diamondbacks score on late wild pitches to beat Pirates 9-5

PHOENIX (AP) — Pittsburgh starter Joe Musgrove worked out of a couple of jams to help his team build a five-run lead over Arizona after six innings. When he opened the seventh by intentionally plunking Chris Owings, it not only put a runner on, it sparked the Diamondbacks to a massive rally. Jake Lamb hit a tying-three run homer in the seventh inning and the Diamondbacks scored nine runs after Musgrove hit Owings to rally past the Pirates 9-5 on Monday night. "It is nothing more than protecting your teammates," Musgrove said. "That is baseball and how the game is played. If you are willing to go out and hit somebody you have to be willing to deal with might come with that." The Pirates led 5-0
