Cleveland Hits Walk-Off Home Run In 10th Inning, Pirates Lose 6-3

With one out and the score tied at 3, Santana’s drive sailed high over the foul pole and landed at the top of the left field rotunda at PNC Park.

“The ball was hit so far over the pole that you couldn’t tell,” said first base coach Sandy Alomar Jr., serving as acting manager while Terry Francona is sidelined by a gastrointestinal illness.

One out later, Francisco Lindor walked and then Santana connected off Sam Howard (1-1) for his second home run of the season.

But speedy Jarrod Dyson was picked off second base by catcher Roberto Perez and the inning eventually ended when Nick Wittgren (1-0) struck out Josh Bell with two on.

Pittsburgh rookie JT Brubaker went just three innings and allowed three runs on three hits and three walks in his second career start.

… Reyes was back in the lineup after getting hit on the left wrist by a pitch Sunday in a win at Detroit and leaving the game.
