Sloppy Pirates fall 6-1 to Nationals, who clinch NL East

PITTSBURGH (AP) On a night when the Washington Nationals clinched their third National League East title in five years, the Pittsburgh Pirates played like anything but a championship-caliber team.

The Pirates trailed 3-0 before committing three errors - wild throws by catcher Francisco Cervelli, shortstop Sean Rodriguez and rookie second baseman Adam Frazier - in the fourth inning that led to three unearned runs in a 6-1 loss to the Nationals on Saturday night.

That helped lead to Ivan Nova (12-8) losing his second straight start, giving up six runs and eight hits in four innings. He had gone 5-0 in his first eight starts after being acquired from the New York Yankees on Aug. 1 in a trade.
