A terrible relief appearance by Jo-Jo Reyes led to a 10-3 loss for the Pirates against the Yankees Tuesday night.
Reyes came on with two on, two outs and a 2-2 score in the fourth inning and allowed a wild pitch, two walks, two singles and a double before finally leaving the game without recording an out. At that point, the Pirates were down 7-2.
Erik Bedard started the game for the Pirates and allowed four runs over 3.2 innings, although some of that was Reyes’ doing. Ryota Igarashi was charged with two runs in the fifth, and then Jared Hughes gave up a run after allowing a leadoff double in the eighth.
Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run homer in the top of the first, an inning that was shortened when the Pirates flubbed an apparent hit-and-run opportunity and hung Neil Walker out to dry at second.
The Pirates take on the Red Sox Wednesday afternoon at 1:05.
