Leading the series against the Brewers, the Pittsburgh Pirates came away with a victory again last night, partially because of Gregory Polanco.
Polanco smashed a pinch-hit double in the sixth inning that cleared the bases, and lead the Pirates to a 9-6 win Saturday night.
“That was one of the best swings I’ve seen him put on anything in this park,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said.
Pirates.mlb.com reported, “With the game tied at 6, Sean Rodriguez led off the sixth with a single to center and moved to third on a double down the left-field line by Josh Bell. The Brewers opted to intentionally walk Andrew McCutchen to get to the spot in the Pirates lineup held by reliever Jeff Locke. Hurdle called on Polanco, who roped a 2-1 fastball from Brewers reliever Blaine Boyer to the right-center-field gap to score three runs.”
The Pirates take on the Brewers again today at 2:10 p.m. at Miller Park for the last game in the series.
