PITTSBURGH (AP) – Josh Harrison singled home Gift Ngoepe with one out in the 10th inning to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates over the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Saturday night.
Ngoepe led off the inning with a single against Carlos Torres (1-3), advanced to second on a wild pitch and took third on pinch-hitter Jose Osuna’s fly ball. Harrison drove a ball over the head of right fielder Domingo Santana for his seventh career walk-off hit.
Tony Watson (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the Pirates.
Pittsburgh’s Gerrit Cole and Milwaukee’s Matt Garza each allowed a run over seven innings.
Cole gave up two hits with eight strikeouts and two walks. He retired his last 10 batters.
