PITTSBURGH – Gerrit Cole was unable to become the year’s first 12-game winner, allowing five runs and eight hits before leaving in the fifth inning of the Pirates’ 5-2 loss to Cincinnati.

Marlon Byrd smacked a two-run homer and added an RBI single that chased Cole.

Mike Leake limited Pittsburgh to two runs and eight hits in seven innings to win his seventh consecutive decision against the Pirates, who fell seven games behind the NL Central-leading Cardinals.
