Pirates rally in 9th, erupt in 10th to beat Braves 12-5

25 May 2017

Atlanta has won nine of 12.

"We've had some wild finishes here", manager Clint Hurdle said.

Colon (2-4, 6.38) has lowered his ERA almost a point in his last two starts and will try to continue that trend when he takes the mound in the finale of a four-game series against Pittsburgh on Thursday.

The marathon of a game was a great example of how this Braves team has been playing. The game finished just before 2 a.m. - 6 hours, 15 minutes after first pitch. The shortstop was being examined and the team said he was day to day. The Pirates will counter with right-hander Ivan Nova (4-3, 2.63). Jim Johnson pitched the ninth for his ninth save. Kemp was 0-for-4 and hit into a double play.

Washington had the best team batting average (.274) in Major League Baseball through 43 games, and the Nationals had also scored an MLB-leading 246 runs - 5.7 per-game average - during that span.

Coming into the night, Collmenter had allowed four home runs over his 16 innings of work in 2017.

"Another step forward", Hurdle said.

Through nine starts, Teheran has a 5.47 ERA and a 5.26 FIP. "I know he was happy to get on the mound and got some good news (from the session) that will allow him to return to form with pitch progression". In the third, he looped a single to shallow left. After falling almost ten games under.500 the Braves are now sitting at just three games under after another comeback win last night against the Pirates. "I like running, so I do it and I'm safe". However, when he pitches at SunTrust Park, he is 1-4 with a 10.50 ERA. The game continued uninterrupted.

Pittsburgh made it 2-0 with a run in the third.

The Braves took the lead with four runs in the sixth and added a run in the eighth for a 5-3 lead. Mercer didn't get all of it, but he got enough - the ball cleared the top of the fence by a foot or so. Adam Frazier hit a three-run homer in the second. Reach him at or via Twitter @BiertempfelTrib.

The Pittsburgh Pirates and Atlanta Braves played to a 5-5 draw through the first nine innings on Wednesday night before things got fun.
