With this win, they reached the 70th win mark (80 losses) for the season. It has been five years since Pittsburgh achieved more than 70 wins in a season.
Pittsburgh took the lead with a timely hit by Leover Figuero in the bottom of the third inning, and added an additional run in the bottom of the fourth inning when Miguel Anduja hit a solo home run.
The Yankees did not sit still. DJ LeMahieu hit a timely hit to make up one point, and in the top of the 7th inning, Anthony Wolff hit a solo home run to tie the game at 2-2.
However, Pittsburgh took a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the 7th inning thanks to Jason DeLay’s timely hit. Pittsburgh succeeded in ‘protecting baseball’ that day. Carmen Mlozinski, who came on the mound in the top of the 8th inning, pitched one inning without allowing any runs, and David Bednar, the closer, came in relief in the top of the 9th inning, preserving the victory.
Mlozinski had his 8th hold of the season (3 wins, 3 losses) and Bednar had his 36th save (3 wins, 2 losses).
