Dyson's dive gets run on review, D-backs beat Pirates 2-1
By ALAN SAUNDERS
PITTSBURGH (AP) --- Jarrod Dyson dived around catcher Francisco Cervelli but
was only credited with the winning run after a replay review, and the Arizona
Diamondbacks beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 on Tuesday night.
Dyson bolted from third base on David Peralta's grounder in the sixth. Second
baseman Adam Frazier fielded and threw home, and Dyson went head-first past
Cervelli as the backstop applied the tag. Plate umpire Gerry Davis called Dyson
out, but the call was quickly overturned on review. Dyson's left hand touched
the plate just before Cervelli's glove tapped him on the back.
Luke Weaver (2-1) struck out seven and won his second straight start. He worked
into the seventh inning for the second time this season, going 6 1/3 innings
while allowing one run. He has struck out 24 batters over his last 22 2/3
Adam Jones doubled to score Eduardo Escobar in the second, his team-leading
Andrew Chafin and Archie Bradley got the ball to Greg Holland, who worked
around a walk and a wild pitch to earn his fifth save.
Both runs went against Pirates starter Trevor Williams (1-1), who threw seven
innings. He struck out four and walked one.
Cervelli doubled home Colin Moran in the second inning for Pittsburgh. The
Pirates went 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position.
Pirates: OF Bryan Reynolds was removed from the game as a precaution with left
quadriceps muscle discomfort. ... RHP Nick Burdi was placed on the 10-day IL
with right biceps and elbow pain a day after a frightening injury on the mound.
... SS Kevin Newman (right middle finger laceration) started his rehab
assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis and went 1 for 3.
Diamondbacks: RHP Merrill Kelly (1-2, 4.37 ERA) will try to bounce back from
his shortest outing of the season, when he gave up three runs over 3 2/3
innings on April 19.
Pirates: Jordan Lyles (2-0, 0.53) has allowed just one earned run over his
first three starts.
