Ryan Doumit, Xavier Nady and Jason Bay homered as Pittsburgh's Tom Gorzelanny bounced back from one of his worst career starts to beat the Cincinnati Reds, 9-1, today. Gorzelanny, becoming the only Pirates starter other than Ian Snell to win this season, limited the Reds to one run and four hits despite walking four over 6 1-3 innings.
Reds’ rookie Johnny Cueto, outstanding in his first two starts with 18 strikeouts and no walks, wasn't as sharp in this one as he gave up five runs and five hits—four for extra bases—in six innings. He struck out six but also issued his first walk of the season. The Pirates swept the three-game series.
