Jacob Stallings hits 2-run, walk-off home run to lift Pirates past Giants

Echoing a rallying cry from their glory days, Pittsburgh Pirates fans chanted the surname of Johnny Cueto in an attempt to once again rattle the San Francisco Giants starting right-hander at PNC Park.

Unlike the 2013 NL wild card game, Cueto didn’t drop the ball.

By the end, however, Pirates fans were celebrating a home run.

Jacob Stallings hit a two-run walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Pirates to an 8-6 comeback victory over the Giants on Saturday night before a crowd of 7,833 at PNC Park.

It was the highest announced attendance of the season, topping the 7,749 at the home opener on April 8, and fans got to see the Pirates (17-22) win on a walk-off for the second consecutive game after Gregory Polanco’s sacrifice fly sealed a 3-2 win in 11 innings on Friday night.
