Five run 1st inning enough as Bucs hold on in series finale

Pedro Alvarez is currently on pace for exactly 30 home runs this season. I will most definitely take that.

Jason Grilli has appeared in 32 games so far this season. He has recorded at least one strikeout in 30 of those games. That’s pretty impressive.

Cincinnati is currently losing 3-0 in the 7th inning as I am writing this. If that score holds up, the Bucs will move to one game out of 1st place. A three game series in St. Louis is next for the Pirates, whom the club currently holds a 1/2 game lead over.
