DETROIT -- At this point, Clint Hurdle is probably used to managing for more than nine innings.
Colin Moran hit an RBI single in the top of the 10th, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2 on Wednesday night. It was the second straight night Hurdle's Pirates beat Detroit in 10 innings, and it was the sixth extra-inning game already this season for Pittsburgh. Hurdle has guided the Pirates to a 4-2 record in those.
"I've been fortunate to have some experience to draw upon, and coaching for some men that had some experience," Hurdle said. "I've had some men that I've been able to work with and watch. Sometimes, more than anything, you need to act like you know what you're doing."
Spencer Turnbull allowed two hits in six innings for Detroit, but he was denied his first career win after reliever Joe Jimenez loaded the bases with nobody out in the eighth. Daniel Stumpf relieved Jimenez and gave up a tying sacrifice fly to Josh Bell.
Pittsburgh star Starling Marte was beaned by Jimenez during that eighth inning, but he remained in the game and hit a single in the 10th.
The game was played in rainy conditions, and Tigers left fielder Christin Stewart slipped and fell while catching Bell's flyball in the eighth. Stewart stayed in for his plate appearance in the bottom of the inning, then left with a right quad injury.
In the middle of the eighth, there was an announcement telling fans to leave the seating area because of severe weather in the area, but the teams played on. Eventually, fans were told they could return, and there were plenty of good seats available down near the field.
Adam Frazier led off the 10th with a double off Buck Farmer (1-1), and Marte and Moran followed with singles, giving the Pirates the lead. Nick Burdi (2-1) pitched a perfect ninth, and Felipe Vazquez finished for his fifth save in five chances.
"Obviously, it's a welcome challenge when you're playing close games every day," Moran said. "That means you're in every game, and you've got a chance to win."
Turnbull allowed only an unearned run in the fourth in his seventh career start.
"I was pretty happy with myself, although I had one stretch in the middle that wasn't good," Turnbull said. "I was able to get it back, though. I was sailing a few pitches, but I made an adjustment and pretty much started hitting my spots again."
Pittsburgh starter Trevor Williams allowed two runs in six innings.
Pittsburgh took a 1-0 lead in the fourth. With two outs, Detroit shortstop Ronny Rodriguez couldn't handle Jung Ho Kang's hard grounder, letting it past for an error. Bell came home from second on that play.
The Tigers pushed across two runs in their half of that inning. With the bases loaded and one out, Rodriguez lifted a fly to left. Jason Martin made the catch, but his throw home was a bit off line, and Miguel Cabrera was safe on a close play.
John Hicks followed with an RBI single to left that landed in front of Martin, who appeared to get a late break on the ball.
Pittsburgh has won nine of 12.
Jimenez, making his 100th career appearance, gave up a single and a walk before hitting Marte with a pitch that may have glanced off the Pittsburgh slugger's shoulder but also appeared to hit him around the left ear flap on his helmet. He was slow getting up but stayed in.
"They're always horrible," Hurdle said. "We've obviously been through a few of them now, both with shots off the mound and shots at the plate."
Tigers: Detroit has lost LHP Matt Moore for the season after he had knee surgery. Manager Ron Gardenhire updated Moore's status before the game.
