Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Wandy Rodriguez won his fourth consecutive start, Pedro Alvarez had a two-run double and the Pittsburgh Pirates built an early four-run lead before holding off the Milwaukee Brewers 5-4 on Sunday.

The Pirates have won 13 of 15 and are a season high 12 games over .500.

Rodriguez (6-2) gave up three earned runs on seven hits in five innings to earn the victory. He struck out four and didn't walk a batter. Jason Grilli pitched a scoreless ninth for his major league-leading 20th save.

Pittsburgh got to Milwaukee starter Yovani Gallardo (3-5) for a run in the second on Jordy Mercer's two-out triple, which scored Michael McKenry, who walked.

Pittsburgh extended the lead in the third. Starling Marte led off with a double and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Garrett Jones. A two-out double by Alvarez plated two more runs, giving Pittsburgh a 4-0 lead.
