Newsclip®: [Sports] Pirates beat Reds 5-4 in game full of plunkings, ejections - Houston Chronicle

"CINCINNATI (AP) — Jordy Mercer singled home the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth inning Wednesday night, rallying the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in an NL Central rivalry game full of plunkings and ejections. Andrew McCutchen, David Freese, Jung Ho Kang and Josh Harrison each hit solo homers, and the Pirates got their first lead on Mercer's single off Ross Ohlendorf (3-4). Pirates manager Clint Hurdle and left fielder Starling Marte were ejected during a dispute over a call at second base in the sixth inning. The Pirates managed only four hits in the first eight innings, all of them homers. In the bottom of the inning, Juan Nicasio hit Brandon Phillips in the upper leg with his first pitch, drawing loud boos from the crowd of 14,694 and a warning to both benches from plate umpire Jeff Kellogg. Marte was called safe while trying to steal second base in the sixth inning, but the decision was overturned on review.",
