Reynolds, Pirates rally past SF 6-4
SAN FRANCISCO — Bryan Reynolds hit a go-ahead single against his former team during a four-run rally in the ninth inning that sent the Pittsburgh Pirates over the San Francisco Giants 6-4 on Monday night.
Down 4-2, the Pirates used three pinch-hitters and came back against three Giants relievers in the ninth.
Kevin Newman hit a tying, two-run single with one out and Reynolds, a fellow rookie, followed with an RBI single off Jandel Gustave.
Reynolds also had a double and is batting .328. The Giants drafted him in the second round in 2016 before trading him to Pittsburgh after the 2018 season in a deal for Andrew McCutchen.
Richard Rodriguez (4-5) pitched a scoreless eighth inning. Felipe Vazquez worked the ninth for his 26th save in 29 chances.
