Negron hits 1st homer in Reds' 6-3 win over Bucs

CINCINNATI (AP) -

Kris Negron hit his first career home run, and All-Star Todd Frazier added a two-run shot as the Cincinnati Reds rolled into the break with a 6-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday.

Negron, who was called up from Triple-A Louisville on Thursday for his first appearance in the majors since playing four games in 2012, celebrated his first major league start with a three-run, opposite-field homer to right off of Francisco Liriano in the second inning.

The RBIs were also the first of his career, and the hit was his second.

Frazier lined a drive just inside the right-field foul pole on the first pitch from Vance Worley in the sixth to help the Pirates finish 2-5 on their road trip.

The Reds went 8-3 on their 11-game homestand against Central Division-opponents Milwaukee, the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh.
