Reds 3, Pirates 2

CINCINNATI — Tucker Barnhart hit the last of three solo homers off Jonathon Niese, and Reds relievers pitched three scoreless innings — a rarity for the major leagues' worst bullpen. Barnhart's first homer since last May 27 ended the seventh-longest active streak without a homer — 270 at-bats. Cincinnati's bullpen had allowed at least one run in 25 of the past 26 games, including a major league-record 23 straight through Friday.
