Pittsburgh Pirates continue domination of Cincinnati Reds with 9-6 win

The Pittsburgh Pirates have now won 23 of the last 32 games they have played against the Cincinnati Reds after tonight's 9-6 victory. Keep in mind that Pittsburgh has finished fourth or fifth in the National League Central Division for each of the past three seasons. For the Reds, a too-little-too-late comeback attempt was futile.
