Harrison helps Pirates to DH split with Yankees

KDWN

NEW YORK (AP) — Josh Harrison homered in the seventh inning to make up for a baserunning blunder and made a diving catch in left field to help preserve the Pittsburgh Pirates’ first win in the Bronx in 54 years, 5-3 over the New York Yankees on Sunday for a doubleheader split.

Mark Teixeira had a two-run single and Brett Gardner added an RBI double as the Yankees beat Pittsburgh 4-3 in the opener of the first single-admission twinbill at Yankee Stadium since 2004.

Starling Marte hit a two-run homer off Vidal Nuno in the sixth inning of the second game after striking out four times in the opener. Marte, though, left with left hamstring tightness in the seventh inning. Neil Walker and Tony Sanchez homered for Pittsburgh in the opener.
