Charlie Morton dominated for seven innings, Neil Walker homered and Starling Marte drove in two runs as the Pirates wrapped up a successful road trip with some late-inning theatrics in a 3-0 win over the Reds in Cincinnati on Sunday.

The win, which got testy in the later innings after a pair of hit batsmen, gave the Pirates a split in the four-game series with the Reds.
