Glasnow allows 7 runs in third as Pirates fall to Diamondbacks

The Pirates and Diamondbacks have had issues in the past, including a year ago when Pittsburgh reliever Arquimedes Caminero hit Jean Segura and Nick Ahmed on their heads during a game.

Elvis Andrus started the ninth-inning rally with a one-out single before Jonathan Lucroy followed with his third hit, looping a single that dropped just in front of diving center fielder Manual Margot.

For Friday's game, the Pirates will be rolling out RHP Tyler Glasnow. It was also Polanco's first home run since September 16, 2016, snapping a 148-at-bat homerless streak for the young slugger. But that was about it. Josh Harrison drew a two-out walk in the ninth against Arizona closer Fernando Rodney, but got ignominiously thrown out stealing. His only other imperfection was a Jordy Mercer walk in the third.

Iannetta homered to start a seven-run third inning.

"There's a strategy to pitching in and there's a need for pitching in", Lovullo said, "and by no means do I think anybody tried to hit Chris Iannetta in the face yesterday".

Greinke, with a vicious slider doing most of the damage, has struck out 11.

On the 95th pitch of the night, Polanco finally broke it open for the Pirates, hitting the ball to nearly the same spot, just fair, for a home run.

Leading off the eighth inning, Pittsburgh outfielder Gregory Polanco immediately gave him a scare, launching a ball just foul into the right field bleachers. The at-bat is not over.

"Unfortunately, he might've made one mistake that was hit for a solo home run, but that was the only thing where he was nicked up".

Greinke has thrown one one-hitter, for Kansas City at Seattle on August 30, 2009.

Arizona has some noteworthy hitters as well.

Manager Torey Lovullo says Iannetta is "doing OK" a day after being struck Friday night by a 93 miles per hour pitch from Pittsburgh's Johnny Barbato.

The only no-hitter thrown at Arizona's Chase Field was by Jose Jimenez of St. Louis on June 25, 1999.

Pirates: Utility player Adam Frazier, on the DL since April 24 with a left hamstring strain, began a rehab assignment this week with Triple-A Indianapolis. Freese went 0-for-3 on the night with two strikeouts.

Meanwhile, Williams (1-2) takes the hill for his second start and eighth appearance of the season.

Diamondbacks: RHP Shelby Miller underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday in Los Angeles.
