Pirates’ Josh Harrison Delivers Game-Winning RBI in 12th Inning

For eight innings of Sunday’s game with the Houston Astros, it appeared that the Pirates were going to lose in a similar fashion to most of their losses this season—lack of offensive production.

Finally, after another dismal performance at the dish, especially with A.J. Burnett on the hill, the Pirates broke through with a sacrifice fly from Pedro Alvarez. The run took Burnett off the hook and gave the Pirates new life.

Josh Harrison would step to the plate in the 12th inning to deliver Pittsburgh’s 16th win of the season. His single knocked in Clint Barmes.

Pittsburgh’s Tony Watson picked up the victory and Fernando Rodriguez was tagged with the loss for Houston.
