Pittsburgh Pirates Baseball, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

PHOENIX (AP) – Chris Herrmann drove in four runs with a home run and double, Rubby De La Rosa gave up three hits over six-plus innings, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-1 on Saturday night.

Herrmann, the backup catcher who was 1 for 20 at the plate entering the game, doubled in a run in the second and hit a three-run homer off A.J. Schugel in Arizona’s five-run eighth. The four RBIs tied Herrmann’s career high.

De La Rosa (2-3), whose previous two appearances were out of the bullpen, didn’t allow a hit after Sean Rodriguez’s home run with two outs in the second inning until Gregory Polanco’s infield single to start the seventh.

David Peralta homered for the second straight night, a solo shot off Juan Nicasio (2-2), to put the Diamondbacks up 2-1 in the third. Nicasio gave up two runs on just three hits in six innings.
