PITTSBURGH — Justin Upton dropped a routine fly ball to left-centerfield in the ninth inning, setting the stage for Gaby Sanchez's winning sacrifice fly that capped the Pirates' late-inning comeback. Jordy Mercer led off with a single off David Carpenter and Starling Marte's fly to left-center advanced him to third, where Mercer tagged up on Sanchez's flyout. Pittsburgh snapped a seven-game skid.
