PITTSBURGH, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Neil Walker's bases-clearing double capped a six-run second inning Tuesday and the Pittsburgh Pirates outlasted Cincinnati 7-6.

Walker's three-run hit came after Chris Snyder drove in two runs with a single and then scored on a single by Jose Tabata in the Pirates' big frame, allowing Pittsburgh to even its three game series with the Reds at one win apiece.

Walker drove in a fourth run with a fifth-inning RBI single.

Paul Maholm (7-9) got the win, yielding four runs on nine hits in six innings.

Joel Hanrahan earned his first save of the year with a scoreless ninth after Cincinnati had pulled to within a run.

Mike Leake (7-3) took the loss, surrendering six earned runs in five innings.

The Reds maintained their half-game lead over second-place St. Louis in the National League Central despite the setback.
