The home run was impressive but not enough to put up a win.
Gregory Polanco sent a solo homer deep into right field Thursday night in San Diego. That cut the Pirates’ deficit to 4-3 in the seventh.
The 423-foot slam was a beauty but the damage had already been done by Padres’ Ian Kinsler’s three-run shot to the other side.
The Pirates lost 4-3.
