Bryan Reynolds homered, Adam Frazier drew a bases-loaded walk to force in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning when Pittsburgh scored three times without a hit, and the Pirates beat the San Francisco Giants 6-4 on Friday night. Gregory Polanco added an RBI triple for Pittsburgh, which snapped a four-game skid. It was 3-all when Dominic Leone (2-1) walked Jacob Stallings leading off the seventh and Kevin Newman reached on a fielder’s choice when shortstop Thairo Estrada’s throw to second was late.
San Francisco tied the game at 3 in bottom of the sixth on one swing of Alex Dickerson’s bat but gave the lead right back the next inning. Dominic Leone struggled to find the strike zone, and Pittsburgh rallied for three runs and the decisive advantage. Leone walked three of the first four Pirates in the seventh inning and allowed all five batters he faced to reach base.
Riding high from two straight thrilling wins in LA, the Giants came out flat Friday and fell to the Pirates.
