Giles Beats Pirates in 11

Giles Beats Pirates in 11

It went late out West. 11 innings and nearly 3:45 of baseball later, Brian Giles sharp liner down the right field line scored Chris Burke with the winning run.
Kevin Correia and Ian Snell both went five innings and allowed three earned runs. Snell walked five and gave up five extra base hits. So, it could've been much worse. He snagged a liner up the box by Jody Gerut with the bases loaded and two gone in the fourth.
The Pirates got him off the hook with two runs in the sixth. The Pirates left the bases loaded in the sixth with Jack Wilson striking out to end the threat. Then the bullpens took over. The Pirate relievers allowed just one hit during the next five innings.
In the 11th, Matt Capps walked Chris Burke and David Eckstein in front of Giles game winning, two out hit.
