Tony Watson was called on to close out the Braves on Tuesday, pitching a scoreless ninth inning to earn his second save of the season.
With switch-hitting Emilio Bonifacio and left-handed hitting Freddie Freeman due up, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle went to the southpaw to protect a two-run lead. Watson allowed a one-out single to Phil Gosselin but induced a double play from Freeman to end the game. Watson has been terrific this season, and he'll continue to be one of Hurdle's top relievers into October. Sep 23 - 10:21 PM
