Gomez Wraps up Save in 11th Inning

CINCINNATI (AP) - Andrew McCutchen tied the game with a solo homer in the ninth inning last night, then connected again in the 11th inning, rallying the struggling Pittsburgh Pirates to a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Gregory Polanco played a key role too, throwing a runner out at home plate to help Pittsburgh escape a jam in the 10th inning.

The Pirates blew a four-run lead for the second straight night, but managed to come back behind McCutchen, who has more homers against Cincinnati than anyone else since 2009. The Buccos bounced back from a 6 to 5 loss in the series opener on Friday to win for only the second time in their last six games.

All five Cincinnati runs came in the sixth inning on homers by Todd Frazier and Chris Heisey.
