Bucs sail again

Pirates 3, Phillies 2

The Bucs, no strangers to giving the Phils fits in this series, did it again late, staying quiet most of the evening against J.A. Happ until the eighth, where Garrett Jones' two-run homer gave the Pirates the first and only lead they'd need. The Bucs finished the homestand a season-high 7-2.
