Harrison Leads Pirates Past Rockies
DENVER (AP) - Josh Harrison had four hits, including a tiebreaking homer, to help the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Colorado Rockies 7-5 on Sunday. Gregory Polanco and Travis Snider also went deep for the Pirates, who avoided being swept in Colorado for the second straight season. Harrison homered on the first pitch of the eighth to break a tie, and Polanco followed with his fifth of the season to make it 7-5.
Tony Watson (7-1) gave up a run in two innings of relief to get the win and Mark Melancon worked the ninth for his 19th save. Harrison also had helped give the Pirates a 5-4 lead. In the sixth he swiped second but was caught in a rundown when he slid past the bag. He survived to reach third - giving him two stolen bases on the play - and scored on a pinch-hit double by Ike Davis to make it 5-4.

Wild Things Lose To Otters

The Evansville Otters clubbed four home runs in the first three innings and topped the Washington Wild Things on Sunday night, 9-3, at Bosse Field. John Schultz, Shayne Hauck and Chris Sweeny stroked solo homers for the Otters. The big hit was a three-run blast in the third by Phillip Wilson that lifted Evansville to a 6-2 lead. The Otters added to their lead with one run in the fifth and two more in the sixth. For Washington, Danny Poma had a nice day by going 3 for 4 with two RBI’s. On the mound, Evansville’s Taylor Dennis (2-1) earned the win with six solid innings. Washington starter Alex Kaminsky (2-5) lasted just three innings and suffered the loss, allowing six runs on seven hits. The Evansville win pulls the Otters into a virtual tie for first place with Washington in the East Division standings.
