Snider's single in 11th lifts Pirates over Reds

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Travis Snider hit an RBI single with two outs in the 11th inning and the Pittsburgh Pirates, boosted by a stellar effort from their bullpen, beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4 Sunday.

Five Pittsburgh relievers combined for 10 scoreless innings. Starter Jeanmar Gomez was removed with tightness in his right forearm after giving up four runs in the first.

Reds shortstop Zack Cozart made a throwing error on Russell Martin's one-out grounder in the 11th. After Pedro Alvarez walked, Jordy Mercer flied out before Snider then dropped a single into right-center off Alfredo Simon (4-2).

Garrett Jones tied the game for Pittsburgh with a long two-run homer with two outs in the eighth. His drive off Jonathan Broxton cleared the right-field stands, reached the Allegheny River on the fly and was estimated at 463 feet.
