Pirates Win in 13
Pittsburgh starter Juan Blanca pitched effectively against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Tigers Park. The right-hander led his team to a 8-3 win. With the win, Pittsburgh pushes its record to 7-6.

Ed Beasley said the idea of hitting a home run barely crossed his mind when he came to bat in the top of the 13th. Beasley belted a grand slam home run to stake Pittsburgh to a 7-3 lead. His 1st home run of the season came off Detroit pitcher Jesús Hernández.

"Our team showed some resilience," said Beasley.
