Pi­rates rally to beat Braves 3-2

The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

PITTS­BURGH (AP) — The Pitts­burgh Pi­rates were look­ing for a way to break their seven-game los­ing skid.

They got a lit­tle help when Justin Up­ton dropped a rou­tine fly ball to left-cen­ter­field in the ninth which set the stage for Gaby Sanchez’s game-win­ning sac­ri­fice fly that capped a late-in­ning come­back as the Pitts­burgh Pi­rates de­feated the At­lanta Braves 3-2 on Wed­nes­day night.

“We try to pride our­selves on not be­ing sur­prised by suc­cess,” man­ager Clint Hur­dle said. “To get the two to tie it up then some help and to win, yeah, it’s a real nice shot in the arm.”
