PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jacob Stallings hit a game-ending single in the 12th inning that lifted the Pittsburgh Pirates over Miami 8-7 and extended the Marlins’ longest losing streak in six years to eight games. Automatic runner Adam Frazier advanced to third on Ke’Bryan Hayes’ flyout leading off the 12th against Adam Cimber. Bryan Reynolds was intentionally walked, and Stallings lined a single to center. Clay Holmes pitched a perfect 12th. Miami has lost eight in a row for the first time since May 15-22, 2015, and has lost nine of 10, dropping a season-low nine games under .500 at 24-33.
