Phillies snap Pirates’ 9-game win streak, 3-1

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jonathan Pettibone pitched neatly into the sixth inning, and the Philadelphia Phillies snapped the Pittsburgh Pirates’ nine-game winning streak with a 3-1 victory Tuesday night.

The surprising Pirates missed out on a chance to win 10 in a row for the first time since 2004, but the NL Central leaders still have the major leagues best record at 51-31.

Pettibone (4-3) won for the first time since May 14 — a span of nine starts — by limiting Pittsburgh’s offense to Garrett Jones’ homer in the sixth. In 5 2/3 innings, Pettibone gave up three hits.

The rookie right-hander was lifted after Jones’ shot, his eighth of the season. Philadelphia’s much-maligned bullpen repeatedly worked around trouble for 3 1/3 scoreless innings to finish off the Phillies’ second win over their past five games.
