Pirates Return the Favor – Defeat D-backs

Friday evenings are for fireworks after the game at Chase Field but, the fireworks on the field were for the wrong team on Friday night.

The D-backs would begin with the lead but would suffer from rough fourth and fifth innings as Petit would rack up six earned runs after striking out six before leaving the game. The six runs were enough to give the Pirates a pretty comfortable lead as Arizona was only able to answer with one additional run for the remainder of the game.

Four more runs were scored by the Bucks in the top of the eighth inning to make the score 10-3. Despite the loss, four Diamondbacks were able to extend their hitting streaks as they go into Saturday’s game with a tough loss.
