Pirates Rally To Beat Marlins, Take Series
MIAMI (AP) - Josh Bell's go-ahead double in the seventh helped lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-4 victory over the Miami Marlins on Sunday. The Pirates rallied from a 4-2 deficit on Corey Dickerson's pinch-hit RBI double off Miami starter Sandy Alcantara in the sixth and took the lead in the seventh against reliever Nick Anderson (2-3) on Melky Cabrera's game-tying triple and Bell's double that scored Cabrera. Cabrera went 2-for-4 and Kevin Newman also had two hits for the Pirates, who won the series after ending a seven-game slide Friday. Richard Rodriguez (1-3) pitched a scoreless sixth and Kyle Krick got the next five outs. Felipe Vazquez pitched 1 1/3 innings around Austin Dean's pinch-hit single in the ninth for his 16th save. Alcantara gave up three runs and eight hits in six innings. He struck out and walked two.

Archer allowed four runs, seven hits, struck out eight and walked three in five innings. Jung Ho Kang's two-run double in the fourth gave the Pirates a 2-0 lead.

His arrival meant the demotion of outfielder Clint Frazier, who was hitting .283 with 34 RBIs in 53 games.
