Heisey hits 2 homers to lead Reds past Pirates

PITTSBURGH – Chris Heisey hit two home runs, including a tiebreaking shot in the ninth inning, and Johnny Cueto overcame an early jolt to earn his 16th win as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Sunday.

Heisey’s solo drive with one out in the ninth off Jared Hughes (6-5) helped the Reds avoid getting swept at PNC Park. Heisey began the day with just five homers in 229 at-bats this year.

Cueto (16-8) gave up a home run to Josh Harrison on his first pitch of the game. Jordy Mercer homered off Cueto in the second for a 2-0 lead.

Cueto wound up pitching eight innings and tied Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw for the major league lead in victories.

Aroldis Chapman struck two in a perfect ninth for his 29th save.
