PITTSBURGH (CBS/AP) — A throwing error by pitcher Jared Hughes on a sacrifice bunt by reliever Jean Machi in the 13th inning allowed the San Francisco Giants to score the winning run and overcome a six-run deficit to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 11-10 Monday night.
Hughes (1-1) came on to start the 13th. With one out, he walked Hunter Pence and hit Juan Perez with a pitch. Machi (5-0), in just the second plate appearance of his four-year career, then dropped down a bunt, which Hughes fielded and threw wildly past first base as Pence scored from second base.READ MORE: Elizabeth Holmes Grilled On Claims Of Battlefield Use Of Theranos Testing Technology
