Pirates beat Phillies 2-1 in 12 innings
Jose Tabata hit a game-ending single with two outs in the 12th
inning, lifting the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 2-1 win over the
Philadelphia Phillies in a game without an extra-base hit.
Tabata smacked a sinking liner off of Danys Baez (1-3) into the
hole on the right side that a lunging second baseman Chase Utley
could not handle. Right fielder Ben Francisco’s throw was not in
time, giving Tabata his second RBI of the game when Xavier Paul
scored from second. Paul had singling with two outs and stole a
Pittsburgh won for the third time in four games.
The Phillies lost their third consecutive game for only the
second time this season, despite starter Cole Hamels allowing only
one hit in eight innings.
