PITTSBURGH, April 14 (UPI) -- Michael McKenry and Starling Marte each hit a two-run homer during an eighth-inning rally Sunday in Pittsburgh's series-sweeping 10-7 win over Cincinnati.

Trailing 6-4 entering the frame, the Pirates erupted for six runs off reliever Jonathan Broxton (0-1).

McKenry's blast with Pedro Alvarez aboard -- his second homer of the game -- forged a 4-4 tie. Marte followed a walk to Jose Tabata with another long ball for a Pirates lead.

Gaby Sanchez provided a pair of RBI and Neil Walker went 3-for-5 with a run-scoring single for the Bucs, who completed a three-game home sweep.

The rally handed a win to Jared Hughes (1-0), despite allowing a run in the eighth.

Brandon Phillips drove in three runs with a pair of singles and Joey Votto homered for the Reds, who dropped a fifth straight overall.
