Reds 3, Pirates 1

Unsurprisingly, the Pirates couldn't do much against Johnny Cueto, only squeezing out one run on an Andrew McCutchen double in the fourth. Meanwhile, the Reds scored three, thanks in part to a pair of errors by Chase D'Arnaud that led to Reds runs in the first and fifth. The Bucs put a bunch of runners on in the late innings but couldn't bring any of them home, but I suppose that's to be expected when they only muster five hits, including just two for extra bases. 

The Pirates ended up taking two of three from the Reds, which of course is fine, although they only scored four runs the whole series. They're now tied for the NL Central lead with Milwaukee. The Bucs will take a day off, then start a series against the Cardinals on Friday.

I'll be on CJBK in London, Ontario to talk about the Pirates at 5:40 PM. You can listen live here.
