DETROIT — Tyler Anderson’s five strong innings helped Pittsburgh move to 8-9 with a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers in the first game of Wednesday’s doubleheader, but Detroit rallied for a 5-2 win in the nightcap.
Pittsburgh has won five of its last eight games after a 1-6 start.
The Pirates and Tigers were playing a doubleheader because Tuesday night’s game was postponed on a snowy day in the Detroit area.
There was still a white dusting on top of the bushes beyond the wall in center field Wednesday, plus some flurries late in the game.
The teams will finish their series today at 1:10 p.m.
