Alvarez, Liriano help Pirates to 8th straight winSubmitted: 06/29/2013
Story By Associated Press

PITTSBURGH - Pedro Alvarez and Garrett Jones each homered and Francisco Liriano pitched six strong innings as the surging Pittsburgh Pirates won their eighth straight game, 2-1 over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night.

Alvarez hit his 20th home run with one out in the second inning to extend his hitting streak to 12 games and help the Pirates to its longest winning streak since 2004. Pittsburgh, which has endured 20 consecutive losing seasons, has the best record in the major leagues at 50-30.

Jones hit a drive to the shrubbery in straightaway center field, his seventh, to lead off the fourth inning and increase the Pirates' lead to 2-0.

That was enough for Liriano (7-3), who improved to 4-1 in five home starts this season.
