The Pittsburgh Pirates have activated closer Jason Grilli off the disabled list and optioned Sanchez to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Sanchez hit .278 with two homers and 12 RBIs in 21 games for Pittsburgh but was forced back to the minors when the team activated Russell Martin off the disabled list Thursday.

Pittsburgh recalled Sanchez from Triple-A Indianapolis Saturday after placing starting catcher Russell Martin on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

Sanchez was slated to hit eighth in the lineup Saturday against St. Louis.

In a game that took 5 hours, 55 minutes, pinch-hitter Tony Sanchez singled in the winning run in the bottom of the 16th inning to give the Pirates a 4-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night - the longest game in Pittsburgh history by time.

Sanchez's hit came off Carlos Villanueva (0-2), ending the game just short of 1 a.m. and six minutes longer the Pirates' 8-7, 18-inning victory over Houston on May 27, 2006, that took 5:49.
