Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke sinks Pirates with 11 strikeouts

With a 3-for-5 night, Drury's single, double and home run fell just short of the cycle.

"We talk about linking our at-bats together and having team at-bats up and down the lineup and not having one guy try to do it all".

Pittsburgh's lineup was silent Wednesday until Francisco Cervelli hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning to break up Los Angeles right-hander Kenta Maeda's shutout bid in Dodger Stadium. The Diamondbacks defeated the Pirates 11-4.

Unbeaten Dallas Keuchel (6-0) became the first six-game victor in the majors, helped by a home run from Carlos Correa.

"Hopefully they come in bunches now, because it has taken a while to get there", Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "Doesn't have much to show for it".

Dominic Leone (1-0) got one out for the win as Toronto improved to 8-4 in May.

A seven-run third inning preceded a four-run fourth inning as the D-backs pounded the Pittsburgh Pirates, sending the visitors to their season-high sixth straight defeat, 11-4, in front of an announced crowd of 21,911 at Chase Field on Friday.

The Mariners have dropped three in a row since a four-game winning streak.

There were two fly outs to the outfield in the seventh. Arizona Diamondbacks' Patrick Corbin (46) scores a run on a triple by A.J. Pollock as Pittsburgh Pirates' Chris Stewart, right, waits for a late throw during the third inning of a baseball game Friday, May 12, 2017, in Phoe.

But he has had success at Chase Field this season, giving up only eight earned runs in five starts while fashioning a 2.45 ERA.

Four batters and 15 pitches into the game the Pirates had a 1-0 lead.

In the third game of the series, RHP Trevor Williams (1-2, 7.98 ERA) makes his second start for Pittsburgh after moving into the rotation when Jameson Taillon left to begin treatment for testicular cancer.

Reds 3, Giants 2: Zack Cozart had two extra-base hits, including an RBI double in the top of the eighth that scored the victor, as visiting Cincinnati defeated San Francisco. He struck out five and walked one. He had allowed three hits or fewer in each of his previous four starts.

Cole, a West Coast native who attended UCLA, has feasted on the NL West in his short career. At 23-13, the Rockies are off to the best start in team history. Arizona was in total control by the time the hot-hitting Drury belted a towering shot into the left field seats for a 7-1 lead.
