Adam LaRoche, one of baseball's best hitters this month after being one of its worst in April, had two hits, scored twice and drove in two runs to help the Pirates halt a five-game losing streak against Arizona dating to last season.
Pinch-hitter Ryan Doumit also had a three-run homer for the Pirates.
Snell (4-2) gave up more than two earned runs only once in his first eight starts and looked to be cruising with a 7-0 lead in the sixth, only to be lifted during a four-run inning that included Mark Reynolds' run-scoring triple and RBI doubles by Eric Byrnes and Carlos Quentin. Arizona starter Doug Davis (2-5) was the loser.
