PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Gamel homered twice and drove in six runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Atlanta Braves 11-1 on Monday night.
Gamel took Max Fried (5-5) over the fence in center field for a two-run home run in the fourth.
He doubled home Bryan Reynolds in the sixth and added a three-run shot in the seventh.
The Pirates have won two straight following a six-game losing streak. Freddie Freeman and Ronald Acuña Jr. had two hits each for Atlanta, but the Braves missed a chance to get back to .500 for the first time in a month.
