Burnett, McGehee lead Pirates over Phillies

Burnett, McGehee lead Pirates over Phillies

A.J. Burnett threw 6 2-3 sharp innings to win his eighth straight start, and Casey McGehee hit a three-run homer as the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 in the National League on Thursday.
Pedro Alvarez also went deep for Pittsburgh, which split the four-game set in Philadelphia by winning the last two. The surprising Pirates, seeking their first winning season since 1992, are 40-35 and second in the NL Central division.
Burnett (9-2) allowed three runs and six hits, striking out seven. The winning streak is his longest, and it's the first time a Pirates pitcher has won eight in a row since Dock Ellis in 1974.
Eric Kratz and Pence hit homers for the Phillies.
