SAN DIEGO (AP) - With Mark McGwire managing for the first time in place of ejected Andy Green, Wil Myers and Derek Norris hit two-run homers and Adam Rosales added a solo shot for San Diego, which rallied to beat Pittsburgh.

McGwire, baseball's one-time single-season home run king, was hired as Green's bench coach in December.
McGwire went 1 for 2 on challenges. In the fourth, McGwire challenged a call that Gregory Polanco was safe at home on a single by Jordy Mercer, and the call was overturned. Replays showed that Matt Kemp's throw was in time.
