PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jacob Stallings drove in the winning run with a fielder’s choice in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the Pittsburgh Pirates a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday night.

With the scored tied 2-all, Bryan Reynolds led off the inning with a double into the gap in left-center off Jose Alvarado (6-1).

Reynolds moved to third on Gregory Polanco’s slow roller groundout, and John Nogowski followed with a walk.

Stallings hit a chopper toward third baseman Alec Bohm, whose throw home was too late to get Reynolds. It was the seventh game-ending RBI of Stallings’ career, and his fourth this season.
