Sean Rodriguez, just off the disabled list, homered and drove in four runs, Starling Marte hit a grand slam and Corey Dickerson also homered as the red-hot Pittsburgh Pirates won their seventh straight, defeating the host Cincinnati Reds 12-1 on Friday night. Rodriguez, who had been out since June 24 with a quadriceps injury and was hitting just .145, was activated before the game and playing second base for Josh Harrison, out with hamstring discomfort. After singling in a run in the fourth inning, Rodriguez crushed a hanging slider off Reds rookie starter Tyler Mahle in the sixth for a three-run homer.

A small cat made its way into the Great American Ball Park during the fourth inning of the Pirates’ game against the Reds, and found its way right down onto the field. Then, out of options, it darted behind home plate right as Pirates outfielder Corey Dickerson hit a fly ball to left field.
