Pirates fall to Mariners 6-3 on Eugenio Suárez walkoff homer

SEATTLE — Mariners’ third baseman Eugenio Suárez hammered a middle-middle slider over the left field wall to walk off the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-3 in the tenth inning on Sunday.

The Pirates needed eighth-inning heroics from Bryan Reynolds and Andrew McCutchen (and the help of a wild pitch) to make it that far, but they couldn’t seal the deal in extras, dropping the game and the series to Seattle.

Mariners’ center fielder Julio Rodriguez blasted a hanging slider over the left field fence to open a 1-0 lead in the first.

Catcher Austin Hedges singled and right-fielder Andrew McCutchen walked in the third. A flyout put runners at the corners, but the Pirates couldn’t draw even.
