Diamondbacks Vs. Pirates Final Score: Pittsburgh Holds On To Win 7-6

The Pittsburgh Pirates were able to hang on and pickup an important victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday evening. The Pirates are in the thick of the NL Central race and every victory is important. The Diamondbacks took an early 2-0 lead in the first inning thanks to a Chris Johnson RBI single and a Paul Goldschmidt sacrifice fly.

A Neil Walker three-run home run quickly gave the Pirates a 3-2 lead in the game in the bottom of the inning however. Two innings later Sterling Marte powered in a home run to push the lead to 4-2.

The Diamondbacks rallied to tie the game a few innings later at 4-4, but Neil Walker knocked in two more runs in the bottom of the same inning giving him a total of five RBI on the night and the Pirates a 6-4 lead.

Jordy Mercer made it three home runs for the Pirates on the evening adding another insurance run. Arizona added two more runs late, but couldn't pull off the rally as the Pirates held on to win 7-6.
