PITTSBURGH (AP) – Tyler Naquin homered and drove in four runs, Tucker Barnhart keyed a six-run fourth inning with a two-run double and the Cincinnati Reds rolled to a 14-1 victory over the skidding Pittsburgh Pirates.

Naquin’s three-run shot came in the seventh inning, bounced off the right-field foul pole and made it 11-1.

He also doubled home a run during the fourth-inning outburst. Barnhart’s double to left-center field was the big blow in the fourth as the Reds snapped a 1-all tie.

The Pirates lost for the ninth time in 11 games.
