Morales hits tiebreaking homer, Blue Jays beat Reds 6-4

DIAMONDBACKS 6, PIRATES 5, 14 inn.: In Pittsburgh, Chris Owings singled home the go-ahead run in the 14th inning and Arizona outlasted Pittsburgh in a game that lasted over four hours and included a 93-minute rain delay.

In the eighth, Morales turned on a pitch from Blake Wood (0-3) for his 10th homer of the year.

Dominic Leone pitched two innings of relief and J.P Howell finished. Over the weekend, fans got to see the return of Troy Tulowitzki and Josh Donaldson, both of whom have been out of game action for an extended period of time.

Toronto has taken the first two games of this series, putting up a 17-2 win on Monday and then a 6-4 win on Tuesday.

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto hits a two-run home run against the Toronto Blue Jays during first inning interleague baseball action in Toronto on Wednesday, May 31, 2017.

Happ, activated earlier in the day after a six-week stint on the disabled list with a left elbow injury, pitched four innings and reached his usual low-90s with his fastball. Making his 4th Major League Baseball start, he faced the the minimum the first time through the order, allowing just a single to Morales erased on a ball Justin Smoak smashed, but right at Votto. But Happ otherwise held the line, with clean inning against the bottom of the order in the 2nd and 4th and stranding the bases loaded in the 3rd.

"We had a hard time keeping them in the ballpark", Cincinnati manager Bryan Price said. Martin drove in Morales with a double in the seventh and Travis added an RBI single. With a win in Thursday's opener, they would improve to 27-27, the first time they'd hit the.500 mark all season. It was Cozart's first multihomer game of the season and the third of his career.

Ken Pagan appeared in a Toronto courtroom to face a charge of mischief under $5,000 for tossing a beer can just as Baltimore Orioles' outfielder Hyun Soo Kim was about to catch a fly ball during the seventh inning of the game on October 4, 2016.

"It sure is a different ballgame if we actually get the lead in that situation", Price said.

It may have been Votto's homecoming, but it was another Toronto-born, 2002 draft pick who had a more memorable night.

A man who tossed a beer can onto the field during a dramatic Blue Jays playoff game last fall has pleaded guilty to mischief in connection with the incident. Pagan is due back in court June 28 for sentencing.

An All-State baseball and football player at Faith Academy in Mobile and a baseball standout at Auburn, Donaldson became the ninth Toronto player to hit a home run into the fifth deck.

With some generous help from that non household name - Reds starter Lisalverto Bonilla - and a struggling reliever, Robert Stephenson, the Jays blew this non-contest wide open in the third inning.

Liriano is scheduled to start Friday after being on the DL since May 11 with left shoulder problems. OF Dalton Pompey (concussion) made his first rehab start at Class-A Dunedin. Stroman is looking for his third straight win while he now owns a 5-2 record to go alongside a 3.30 ERA. RHP Mat Latos was released from Triple-A.

Instead, the Blue Jays played better in most phases of the game on their way to an 18-10 May capped off by a sweep of the Cincinnati Reds.
