CINCINNATI (AP) A surprise in 2023 following a 100-loss season, the Cincinnati Reds and their beleaguered bullpen were dealt a staggering blow by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Pirates overcame a nine-run deficit for the first time since the franchise started play in 1882 as Luis Rivas tied a career-high with five RBIs in a 13-12 victory on Saturday night.

“There really not a whole lot to say," Reds manager David Bell explained. “Our players have given absolutely every ounce of energy from day one of spring training. That continued tonight it is going to continue to the last pitch of the season.”
