PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — The Pirates opened with a mammoth 10-run first inning and routed the Minnesota Twins Thursday, 17-6.

  • Left fielder Alex Presley went 3-of-4 from the plate with a home run, two RBIs and three runs scored.
  • Right fielder Jose Tabata went 1-of-3 with an RBI and two runs scored.
  • Center fielder Andrew McCutchen walked twice, drove in a run and scored three runs.
  • Designated hitter Garrett Jones hit 3-of-4 with four RBIs and a homer.
  • First baseman Matt Hague was 3-of-4 from the plate with two runs scored and an RBI.

Jo-Jo Reyes pitched two and a third innings, giving up four runs (three earned) on five hits and three walks.
