SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Kevin Correia pitched six effective innings, Garrett Jones homered and the Pittsburgh Pirates ended a five-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Sunday.
Jones’ first homer of the season and Alex Presley’s RBI single during a two-run second inning off Ryan Vogelsong (0-1) supplied all the power Pittsburgh needed.
Correia (1-0) allowed one run and three hits. He was only nicked by Emmanuel Burriss’ RBI grounder in the fifth to snap San Francisco’s three-game winning streak.
Joel Hanrahan pitched out of a jam in the ninth for his first save this season.
