CINCINNATI (AP) — Jay Bruce hit an RBI triple in the ninth inning and the Reds capped a strong season-opening homestand, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 Sunday.

The Reds took two of three from the Pirates and are off to a 5-1 start.

Brandon Phillips led off the ninth with a single. After a popout, Bruce tripled down the right field line against Arquimedes Caminero (0-1).

Former Pirates right-hander Ross Ohlendorf (2-0) escaped a first-and-second, one-out jam in the ninth to get the win.

Eugenio Suarez opened the Reds sixth with his fourth home run of the season, tying at 1. He had three hits in the game.
