The Reds got another run in the eighth when Joey Votto grounded into a double play with the bases loaded against Mark Melancon, ending the reliever's streak of 15 scoreless innings. It was Cincinnati's best chance to pull off the three-game sweep.
"It hurts when you have opportunities like that," manager Dusty Baker said. "You hope you're going to blow it open."
First baseman Gaby Sanchez, a late defensive replacement, started the double play, with Melancon covering first to take the relay and finish it.
"That's as good a double play as we've made all year in a tight situation," Hurdle said.
Pittsburgh scored twice in the seventh on Jordy Mercer's single and Jose Tabata's pinch-hit single off Bailey, who threw 121 pitches.
NOTES: The Pirates continue their 10-game trip with the first of four games in Washington. The Reds begin an 11-game trip to San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego. They're in a stretch of playing 18 of 21 on the road. ... Bailey fanned 10 during his no-hitter in Pittsburgh and nine during his no-hitter against the Giants. ... The Reds plan to call up RHP Greg Reynolds from Triple-A Louisville to start one of their doubleheader games in San Francisco on Tuesday. Reynolds, a California native who played at Stanford, started 16 games for Colorado in 2008 and 2011.
