Reds pitcher Hunter Greene struck out nine and had a no-hitter through seven innings, but it was in the eighth inning when things went haywire. After forcing a leadoff groundout, Greene walked back-to-back batters. Reds reliever Art Warren entered the game, but walked the first batter he faced to load the bases.
Pittsburgh then broke the scoreless tie when Ke’Bryan Hayes grounded into a fielder’s choice and beat out a throw to avoid a double play. The groundout brought Rodolfo Castro home from third to give the Pirates the game-winning run.
