PITTSBURGH (AP) — Yoshi Tsutsugo hit a three-run homer off Alex Reyes in the ninth inning, sending the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Bryan Reynolds started the game-ending rally with a leadoff walk.

After Colin Moran struck out swinging, Jacob Stallings walked and Tsustugo drove Reyes’ next pitch deep to right.

Five of Tsustugo’s nine hits with the Pirates have been home runs.

Reyes has allowed at least one run in four of his last six appearances.
