    Evans denied Baddoo, Pirates beat Tigers 4-2 with 2-run 8th

    Phillip Evans kept Akil Baddoo's drive to left field in the park in the seventh inning to help Pittsburgh escape a jam, and the Pirates scored twice in the eighth to beat the Detroit Tigers 4-2 on Thursday. Colin Moran and Erik González hit RBI singles with two outs in the eighth. With the score tied at 2, Baddoo nearly put the Tigers ahead, but Evans reached above the fence in left, and the ball bounced off his glove and back into the field of play.

    Pirates 3B Ke’Bryan Hayes aggravates wrist injury

    Pittsburgh Pirates rookie third baseman Ke'Bryan Hayes aggravated a left wrist injury sustained on the opening weekend of the season. Todd Tomczyk, the team's director of sports medicine, said Hayes felt pain while swinging at a pitch on Wednesday as he prepared to return from the 10-day injured list. Hayes, 24, was injured during an at-bat on April 3 in a 5-1 loss to the Cubs in Chicago.
