Pavin Smith and Daulton Varsho hit back-to-back home runs in the seventh inning for the lead runs and the Arizona Diamondbacks finished a three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates with a 6-4 victory on Wednesday.
The Diamondbacks won their 30th game of the season, against 68 losses, the worst in MLB, and the fourth in a row to match their best winning streak of the season. They won four in a row from April 18-22, including three games at Cincinnati, which was their only previous sweep of the season.
Al, and los Diamondbacks
With the game tied at 4, Smith received reliever Duane Underwood Jr. (2-3) with his ninth home run in the right-field seats. Varsho followed up with his second of the season, simply clearing the inside fence on the right.
Varsho, who was playing center field after catching Tuesday night, also doubled to start a two-run fourth run.
