Gregory Polanco ends Zack Greinke's no-hit bid in eighth inning

Pirates vs Diamondbacks Live Stream: Watch MLB Online, Team News

The Pittsburgh Pirates are spiraling in the wrong direction and look to halt a season-high five-game losing streak when they visit the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday for the second contest of their four-game series.

"I think the pitch just got away from their pitcher, and I'll stand by that", said Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo. "So, we're taking every precaution possible to make sure he is OK".

Iannetta fell to the ground and was down for a couple minutes, but was able to walk off the field and exit the game. Then, last May, Arizona's Jean Segura was hit in the face during a game in Pittsburgh.

Lovullo later said Walker, who has allowed three or fewer earned runs in five of his seven starts, hadn't been feeling well in the days prior.

Dallas Keuchel struck out nine Yankees batters over six innings of work, allowing one unearned run on five hits and lowering his ERA to 1.69.

Some of the shine from Arizona's third straight win was lost when catcher Chris Iannetta was hit in the face by a pitch from Pirates reliever Johnny Barbato to start the bottom of the seventh.

"His slider's been very good with late action in the hitting zone", Lovullo said. That said, I don't have a whole lot of faith in the Pittsburgh offense right now, and I like Corbin to bounce back.

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Chris Iannetta has several stitches in his upper lip, plus a couple of fractured teeth and a broken nose after getting hit in the face by a fastball.

Jake Lamb doubled in a run and Brandon Drury had an RBI single for the Diamondbacks. The day after that game, Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen was drilled in the back by a pitch. All of those hits but Peralta's came on fastballs clocked in the 92-95 miles per hour range.

Drury also doubled and singled to improve his batting average at home to.448 (30 of 67), best in the majors. Over his 27.0 innings and 1-2 record this year, Glasnow has a 6.33 ERA and 28 Ks.

Patrick Corbin (3-4) went six innings and gave up four runs, two on Josh Bell's homer.

There were two fly outs to the outfield in the seventh.

After breaking up Zack Greinke's no-hitter with an eight-inning homer Thursday, Polanco had a single, a double and two RBIs, and his looping double down the left-field line in the first inning drove in the Pirates' first run.

The Pirates made a pair of roster moves with the return of third baseman David Freese and utility player Adam Frazier from the disabled list.
