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

"The Pirates and Reds played more like the Steelers and Bengals, adding another bruising game to their hard-edged series. Jordy Mercer singled home the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth inning Wednesday night, rallying the Pirates to a 5-4 victory 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). Over the last four seasons, the Reds have hit 43 Pirates batters (10 this season) and the Pirates have hit 41 Reds (five this season).
