Reds Avoid Sweep at Pittsburgh


PITTSBURGH (AP) - Scott Schebler hit an RBI double in the 11th inning and the Cincinnati Reds snapped a six-game losing streak, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5 on Sunday.
    
The Pirates had won six in a row.
    
Eugenio Suarez led off the Reds 11th with a triple past diving left fielder Starling Marte and scored on Schebler's hit off Ryan Vogelsong (1-1).
    
Schebler had entered earlier in a double switch. In the ninth, he doubled home Adam Duvall for a 5-4 lead.
    
Blake Wood (3-0) pitched two scoreless innings, including a perfect 11th.
    
The Reds won for only the second time since being no-hit by the Cubs' Jake Arrieta on April 21.
    
Gregory Polanco and John Jaso homered for the Pirates. Pittsburgh committed a season-high four errors and misplayed other balls.
