Pirates rally for 3 in 9th, beat Diamondbacks 3-2

Posted: Updated:
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Starling Marte hit a two-run double to tie the game with one out in the ninth inning and then scored on pinch-hitter Ike Davis' single two batters later as the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied for a 3-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

The Pirates were shut down for eight innings by Arizona starter Wade Miley before rallying in the ninth. Neil Walker and pinch-hitter Gregory Polanco started the inning with singles against Miley. One batter later, Marte hit a drive to the wall in center off closer Addison Reed (1-4).

Andrew McCutchen was intentionally walked and Davis singled to right, scoring Marte easily.

Ernesto Frieri (1-3) earned his first win with the Pirates after working a scoreless ninth.

Miley allowed four hits in eight-plus innings, striking out 10. He is winless since May 10.
