Josh Harrison back in Pirates’ lineup after ankle injury

Leave a comment

Pirates super-utilityman Josh Harrison rolled his left ankle Saturday at Wrigley Field after pivoting awkwardly to make a throw following an impressive over-the-shoulder catch. But all is well now …

Harrison is starting at third base and leading off as the Bucs try to win their fifth consecutive game.

Pittsburgh is currently 4 1/2 games back of first-place St. Louis in the National League Central standings but 1 1/2 games ahead of Atlanta and Milwaukee for the second National League Wild Card spot.

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
