CINCINNATI -- So many things went right that the Pittsburgh Pirates couldnt pick just one pleasing moment.Sean Rodriguez homered in both games, and Andrew McCutchen had a bases-loaded single as the Pirates beat the Reds 7-3 on Saturday night for their first doubleheader sweep in Cincinnati since 1990.In the first game, Jameson Taillon pitched five innings and singled to drive in a big league run for the first time during a 10-4 win that officially eliminated the Reds from postseason contention.Nothing pleases me the most, manager Clint Hurdle said. Theres a bunch of things that pleased me. Our offense continued to show up in both games.The Pirates have won the first three games of the series, moving back to 74-74. They opened the day with a 5 1/2-game gap and three teams to overtake for a wild-card berth.McCutchen drove in three runs in the opener and had a bases-loaded single in the nightcap off left-hander Brandon Finnegan (9-11), who lasted only 2 1/3 innings. Rodriguez hit a solo homer, adding to his two-run shot in the first game. Pittsburgh has scored 41 runs in the last four games.The Reds helped by walking nine batters after giving up 10 walks in the opener.Its not up to standards, manager Bryan Price said. Weve given up a lot of runs in this series and most of them in large part because were not throwing the ball over the plate consistently. Walks have started rallies and continued rallies. It slows the tempo of the game. It wasnt a highlight day by any means.Cincinnatis Scott Schebler and Ramon Cabrera homered off rookie starter Trevor Williams, who failed to retire any of the four batters he faced in the fifth inning. Juan Nicasio (10-6) didnt allow a hit in two innings.Williams had made two relief appearances before getting to start again. He left after throwing 56 pitches, the result of not starting for a while.I needed a shutdown inning (in the fifth) and that didnt happen for me, he said. I was running out of gas.In the opener, Taillon (4-4) gave up Adam Duvalls three-run homer during his five innings. His RBI single to center in the fifth made it 7-3, although he didnt realize initially that it would drive in a run.Actually I was so caught up in trying to get to first base and not doing anything stupid, he said. The first major league RBI is pretty cool. I hope Im doing with all of the career `firsts now.The Pirates skipped Taillons previous turn in the rotation, trying to limit the rookies innings. He missed the 2014 and `15 seasons while recovering from Tommy John surgery and an operation to repair a hernia.Pittsburgh sent nine batters to the plate in a 17-minute top of the first inning against Anthony DeSclafani (8-4), scoring four times with the help of three walks and the first of a six combined errors in the game.The first pitch was delayed 62 minutes because of rain. The doubleheader, the first between the teams since a Reds sweep on Aug. 31, 2009, made up a May 10 postponement.HOMER HISTORYThe Reds have allowed 238 homers, one shy of the NL mark (2001 Rockies) and three shy of the major league record (1996 Tigers). The bullpen already has set a major league record with 94 homers allowed, two more than the previous mark by the 1964 Kansas City Athletics.STATSPittsburghs Matt Joyce drew his 21st walk as a pinch-hitter this season, a major league record. ...Nicasio has fanned at least one batter in 29 straight appearances, a single-season record for Pirates relievers. The next-longest streak is Aroldis Chapmans 37 games in 2014.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: C Fransicso Cervelli took a foul tip off the inside of his right leg in the opener. After several painful minutes of recuperating, he stayed in the game. ... Starling Marte didnt play in either game because of a sore back.Reds: SS Zack Cozart sat out both games with a sore right knee. Hes missed the last seven.UP NEXTPirates: Ivan Nova (12-6) starts the final game of the series on Sunday. Hes 5-0 with a 2.41 ERA in eight starts since the Pirates acquired him in a trade with the Yankees.Reds: Dan Straily (12-8) will make his fifth start of the season against the Pirates.

For more than 30 years, Jeff Rosenberg has been collecting Muhammad Ali memorabilia, having never sold a single piece.But Friday, the collector and owner of Houston-based sports memorabilia company Tri-Star, said he was parting with some of his most cherished pieces, including the gloves Ali wore for the Fight Of The Century against Joe Frazier in Madison Square Garden in 1971.The gloves will be part of a Goldin Auctions sale, which begins next Monday and closes August 4.Rosenberg bought the gloves in August 2014 for $388,375, which was considered a steal. The next day, he was asked to resell them at a handsome profit, but he turned the offer down. Just months before, the gloves Ali used in his first fight against Sonny Liston in 1964 sold for $836,500.Rosenberg is only the second owner of the gloves in the 45 years since the fight. The gloves were supposed to become property of L.A. talent agent Jerry Perenchio, who had backed the fight using money from Jack Kent Cooke, who owned the Los Angeles?Kings?and?Lakers?at the time. The bout-worn gloves, as?well as the trunks and shoes, were included in the fight contract as a way to recoup money.If a movie studio can auction off Judy Garlands shoes, these ought to be worth something too, Perenchio told Sports Illustrated before the fight.Butt Perenchio never took the gloves.ddddddddddddAfter cutting them off after the fight, in which Ali lost after 15 rounds, trainer and cornerman Angelo Dundee brought them home, where they remained until his death in 2012. The interior of the Everlast gloves are labeled and signed by Dundee.When these last sold, it was clearly an an aberration, said Ken Goldin of Goldin Auctions. This one just slipped through the cracks. But with Alis passing and the recognition once again, not only of his greatness as a boxer but as a world leader, things have now changed.Both Ali and Frazier were undefeated heading into the fight, as this was Alis second fight back after he was absent from boxing for 3 1/2 years for his refusal to enter the draft.Goldin expects bidding to surpass the $1 million mark.For his part, Rosenberg said he isnt happy to be getting rid of the gloves.No matter what the price, theres going to be a sense of loss, Rosenberg said. Its a connection to the greatest fight.Rosenberg has also consigned a torch from the 1996 Olympics -- signed by Ali as both Ali and Cassius Clay -- to the auction.Ali died on June 3 after a 30-year battle with Parkinsons Disease.
