A game that featured five blasts ended with an explosion.
Corey Dickerson homered twice as the Pirates beat the Reds 11-4 in Cincinnati, but a bench-clearing brawl in the ninth and nine ejections will be the takeaway.
Josh Bell doubled in two in the first and Dickerson, who finished 3-for-4 with five RBI, hit a two-run single in the third.
Joe Musgrove got the win with five innings of two-run ball. The Bucs snapped a nine-game skid. Joey Votto and Jose Iglesias homered for Cincinnati. Tanner Roark took the loss.
Reds reliever Amir Garrett charged the Pirates’ dugout to incite the brawl.
