Reds Explode Early, Take Series in Pittsburgh

 

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Rookie Billy Hamilton got three hits and stole two more bases, and the Cincinnati Reds routed Pittsburgh 11-3 Sunday to tie the Pirates for the NL wild-card lead.

The Reds and Pirates each have a magic number of two to close out Washington and clinch a playoff spot. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh trail NL Central leader St. Louis by 2 1-2 games, pending the Cardinals' night game at Milwaukee.

Jay Bruce hit a three-run double and Todd Frazier followed with a homer that capped a five-run burst in the first inning. Bronson Arroyo (14-11) made it stand up, lasting five innings to win for the first time in nearly a month.

Neil Walker hit his 13th homer of the season, but Pittsburgh stumbled in its home finale.
