Pirates stay hot with 3-1 win over Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) -

Travis Snider and Andrew McCutchen hit consecutive run-scoring doubles in the eighth inning, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 on Friday night to keep the pressure on NL Central-leading St. Louis.

The Pirates have won five of six and 17 of 21 overall. They have already clinched a wild card and began the day just one back of St. Louis for the division lead. The Cardinals played the Diamondbacks on Friday night.

NL batting leader Josh Harrison was aboard after a two-out single against Pedro Villareal (0-2) when Snider followed with a scorching line drive to right that Jay Bruce overran, allowing it to roll to the wall for a 2-1 Pittsburgh lead. McCutchen then doubled into the gap in left-center.
