Pittsburgh Pirates Bryan Reynolds Walk Off

Bryan Reynolds majored in psychology at Vanderbilt. He has a better idea about how the mind works than most people.

Thus, the Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder was not thinking about everything surrounding the Milwaukee Brewers, their new closer and reworked bullpen when he stepped to the plate to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday night.

“I was just trying to get on base,” the always-understated Reynolds said.

Reynolds did more than that. He hit a walk-off home run off new Brewers closer Devin Williams to give the Pirates an 8-7 victory at PNC Park.

The Pirates have won the first two games of the three-game series with the National League Central leaders. Coming into the series, the Pirates had lost seven games in a row.

Reynolds’ home run was his 16th of the season but improbable under the circumstances.
