Reds end 6-game skid, beat Pirates in 11th

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Scott Schebler hit an RBI double in the 11th inning and the Cincinnati Reds snapped a six-game losing streak, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5 on Sunday.

The Pirates had won six in a row.

Eugenio Suarez led off the Reds 11th with a triple past diving left fielder Starling Marte and scored on Schebler’s hit off Ryan Vogelsong (1-1).

Schebler had entered earlier in a double switch. In the ninth, he doubled home Adam Duvall for a 5-4 lead.

Blake Wood (3-0) pitched two scoreless innings, including a perfect 11th.

The Reds won for only the second time since being no-hit by the Cubs’ Jake Arrieta on April 21.

Gregory Polanco and John Jaso homered for the Pirates. Pittsburgh committed a season-high four errors and misplayed other balls.
