Pirates Vs. Reds Final Score: Pittsburgh's Late Rally Falls Short, Go Down 5-4

The Pittsburgh Pirates fell in an early hole to the Cincinnati Reds when the Bucs gave up four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to go down 5-0. The Pirates weren't done however and battled back. It took until the eighth inning, but the PIrates finally got on the board with a Neil Walker RBI single.

The Pirates then went on a rally adding three more runs after the Walker RBI, as Andrew McCutchen blasted a three-run home run to center field to bring the Pirates within a run. The rally ended when Jose Tabata grounded out however and the Pirates couldn't get anymore runs to tie the game, going down to the Reds 5-4. The Pirates can still win the series with a victory on Thursday, however.
