The Pirates defeated the Reds 5-3 at PNC Saturday afternoon. Charlie Morton got through six innings without too much trouble, allowing RBI singles by Joey Votto in the first and sixth innings. He allowed seven hits, all singles, and two of those didn't leave the infield. He also got two double plays, including a big one in the sixth to get out of a jam.
He doesn't get the win, because Chris Resop entered with a 3-2 lead and allowed a single, then an RBI double by Ramon Hernandez. But Tony Watson made his return in relief of Resop and got three big outs to keep the score at 3-3, and then the Pirates picked up two runs in the bottom of the inning on a Neil Walker RBI single and a Brandon Wood double off Aroldis Chapman.
