The Pirates salvaged the finale of a three-game series by taking it more than one base at a time. They piled up six doubles and the two homers off a pitching staff that's still out of kilter from a marathon game.
The Reds couldn't extend their best home winning streak in 28 years because they couldn't do anything against Phil Dumatrait (2-2). The left-hander allowed one unearned run and two hits in seven innings, beating the team that let him get away last October.
He was 0-4 in six starts for Cincinnati last season with a 15.00 ERA, prompting the Reds to put him on waivers. The Pirates claimed him, and he's gone 2-1 in six starts.
