Bruce's HR ties it, Reds beat Pirates 2-1 in 13

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) - Jay Bruce ended Jason Grilli's saves streak with a solo homer in the ninth, and Brandon Phillips singled with the bases loaded in the 13th inning on Wednesday night, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Derrick Robinson and Shin-Soo Choo singled off Vin Mazzaro (3-2), and Joey Votto was walked intentionally to bring up Phillips, who singled up the middle.

Grilli started the ninth needing one more save to tie a club record. He had converted all of his 25 chances this season, one shy of Joel Hanrahan's 2011 club record to open a season.

Bruce connected on the first pitch for his fourth homer in his last six games. It was the first homer Grilli had allowed this season.
