Pirates fall again to Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) — Joey Votto drove in a pair of runs, and Shin-Soo Choo extended his hitting streak to a career-high 14 games on Saturday, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates that revolved around an early rain delay.

The third-place Reds have won the first two games in the NL Central series, closing their gap with second-place Pittsburgh to two games.

The Ohio River rivals have split their 12 games this season.

Cincinnati’s Mat Latos (9-3) and Pittsburgh’s A.J. Burnett (4-7) had a tough time finding their control after a 1-hour, 17-minute delay in the middle of the first inning.

Aroldis Chapman escaped a two-on threat in the ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances.
