Johnson's wildness, temper costly as D-backs lose to Pirates 5-3

The Pittsburgh Pirates took advantage of a rattled Randy Johnson and a reversed home run call to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3 in the National League on Monday.
Johnson (4-3) limited the Pirates to six singles and struck out three in 5 2-3 innings but was hurt by three errors _ including one by himself. He was also hurt by wildness; of the five batters he walked, four scored.
Zach Duke (4-4) gave up two runs, including one Mark Reynolds homer and nearly another, in six-plus innings.
Arizona manager Bob Melvin was ejected in the second by home plate umpire Jeff Kellogg, after Reynolds hit a ball that a fan leaned several feet over the railing to catch. It was initially called a home run before the umpires reversed the call, sending Reynolds to second with a double.
