PITTSBURGH — Wade Miley surrendered six runs on 10 hits and the Cincinnati Reds lost for the sixth time in eight games, 6-5 to the Pittsburgh Pirates. 

Miley gave up three runs in the first and three more in the fifth before being pulled with one out. 

The six runs allowed were Miley’s most since the Rockies scored eight off of him May 14. 

The Reds entered the day half a game ahead of the San Diego Padres and St. Louis Cardinals for the second wild card in the National League.

Both Yoshitomo Tsutsugo and Jacob Stallings had two RBI's for the Pirates.

The teams are scheduled to play again tonight at 6:35 p.m.
