Pirates 6, Braves 3
Pirates record: 9-3
Key inning: The Pirates scored three times in the sixth inning, which included Jose Osuna’s solo home run, Chris Bostick’s RBI single and Eury Perez’ RBI sacrifice bunt.
Pirates’ big bat: Adam Frazier went 2 for 3 with a double and run scored, while Austin Meadows and Osuna provided home runs.
Pirates’ starter watch: Trevor Williams was lifted after 2 2/3 innings. He struck out two, but walked two, allowed three hits and two earned runs.
What Trevor Williams said: “(Chris Stewart) helped me out a lot (Tuesday). He got me two outs on the base paths. It makes my life, as a pitcher, a lot easier. It’s nice to see that in his first game back.”
What Chris Stewart said: “I don’t know where that came from. Saw (Anthony Recker) take a jab step towards third base after the bunt through. And it’s, ‘Alright, here we go.’ Fortunately, the arm felt good. Got rid of it, put it on. And, yeah, the stolen base: was able to get rid of quick and put it in the right spot.”
Roster moves: None.
