Crowe’s five solid innings lead Pirates over Marlins

MIAMI (AP) — Wil Crowe won for the first time since July 30 and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Miami Marlins 2-1 on Friday night.

He allowed one run in five innings, giving up three hits. Crowe (4-7) struck out five and walked one. The right-hander’s outing also ended a string of five consecutive no decisions.

Bryan Reynolds walked twice and doubled and Anthony Alford had two hits for the Pirates.

Cole Tucker hit a tie-breaking sacrifice fly in the sixth. Miami starter Elieser Hernandez walked Colin Moran and Jacob Stallings and a passed ball by catcher Payton Henry advanced the runners.

Anthony Banda relieved Crowe and pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings. Nick Mears got the last two outs of the seventh and Chad Kuhl followed with a perfect eighth.
