Jose Pagan Pirates star dies

Posted:

Former big leaguer Jose Pagan, who drove in the eventual winning run for Pittsburgh in Game 7 of the 1971 World Series, has died. He was 76.

The Pirates announced his death after learning of it from Pagan's family. No cause was given for his death Tuesday.

There was a moment of silence before Tuesday night's game against Arizona at PNC Park.

Pagan broke into the majors with the Giants in 1959 and was traded to Pittsburgh in 1965, helping the franchise win the World Series in 1971. His double in the eighth inning of Game 7 gave Pittsburgh a 2-0 lead over Baltimore, and the Pirates hung on to win 2-1.

Pagan also played for Philadelphia during 15 seasons in the majors. He hit .250 with 52 homers and 372 RBIs before retiring in 1973.
