Newsclip®: [Sports] Joyce, Niese lead Pirates to 8-5 win over Braves -

"Joyce homered among his three hits and drove in three runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to an 8-5 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night. Gregory Polanco had three hits and three runs scored, and Jon Niese pitched six effective innings to help the Pirates snap a four-game home losing streak. Joyce stepped into the starting lineup and played right field as Marte was placed on the paternity list before the game after his wife gave birth to their daughter Monday morning. Joyce connected for his fifth home run, a two-run shot deep into the right-field bleachers, off Alexi Ogando in the seventh inning to increase the Pirates' lead to 8-2. Cervelli drove in a run with a ground out in a three-run first inning off Williams Perez (1-1) and had an RBI single in two-run third. Atlanta's runs came on a pair of home runs — a two-run shot by Jeff Francoeur in the sixth inning off Niese that made it 6-2 and a three-run shot by Kelly Johnson in the eighth off Cory",
