PITTSBURGH (AP) — Miguel Andujar hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 4-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night.

Andujar’s hit came in his second game against the Pirates in a 1-all tie. The designated hitter was claimed off waivers from the New York Yankees on Sunday.

The Pirates loaded the bases with a single by Oneil Cruz and walks to Brian Reynolds and Jack Suwinski on Buck Farmer (2-2). Andujar then hit a long drive over the top of the bullpen in left-center field to clear the bases.

It marked Andujar’s first three-RBI game with the Yankees against the Tampa Bay Rays since September 27, 2018. He finished second in American League Rookie of the Year voting that season, behind Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels.

Will Crowe (6-10) pitched two scoreless innings of relief. David Bednar made his 18th save in 22 chances, his first since July 23 after being sidelined for two months with a lower back problem.
