The Pittsburgh Pirates of the American Professional Baseball Major League (MLB) have come down from the top spot in the Central Division of the National League.

Pittsburgh, which recently lost two straight games, ceded the district lead to the Milwaukee Brewers.
One ‘half swing’ made the difference between winning and losing.
In the top of the 6th inning with a score of 3 to 3, Arizona’s Ruedis Gurriel Jr., with one out on second base, reflexively held out his bat when Dowry Moreta’s slider pierced his body, but then stopped.
The ball hit near the handle of the bat rolled powerlessly through the infield, and Moretta threw a bad throw to first base.
Arizona tied Kettel Marte’s one RBI timely hit and Christian Walker’s two-RBI double to add three runs and seal the win.
Arizona starter Merrill Kelly was shaken with 3 hits, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts and 3 runs (2 earned runs) in 5 innings, but with the help of the other line, she harvested 5 wins (3 losses) of the season.
Pittsburgh’s Bae Ji-hwan, who had 5 hits in the last 3 games, did not play on this day.
