 PITTSBURGH (AP) -Paul Maholm allowed three singles in his first career complete game and Pittsburgh avoided its longest home losing streak to start a season in 109 years, beating Houston 3-0 on Tuesday night.
The Pirates, playing only their fifth home game, got their best-pitched game this season from Maholm (1-2), who hadn't won since Sept. 15. Jason Bay had two run-scoring hits.
The left-handed Maholm faced only 29 batters, walking one. Craig Biggio, who had two of Houston's three hits, was thrown out trying to steal second in the fourth. He also was retired on a double-play grounder after hitting a line-drive single to left field on Maholm's first pitch of the game.
The Pirates haven't lost their first five home games since 1898, the 12th season of their existence.
Woody Williams (0-3) gave up nine hits over seven innings.
Braves 11, Marlins 6
MIAMI (AP) - Four Atlanta relievers combined to pitch six shutout innings, and the Braves scored all of their runs with two outs.
Peter Moylan (1-0) pitched three scoreless innings for his first major league win. Bob Wickman finished with a one-hit ninth and has yet to allow a run in 9 2-3 innings.
Florida's Cody Ross doubled and homered to drive in five runs, all off starter Mark Redman.
The Braves scored four runs in the first and four in the ninth. Brian McCann put Atlanta ahead 7-6 in the sixth with a sacrifice fly off Matt Lindstrom (0-1).
Atlanta's Jeff Francoeur drove home two runs with a double and a single, giving him 18 two-out RBIs this season.
Marlins rookie starter Rick Vanden Hurk gave up six runs in one-plus inning and saw his ERA rise to 12.75 in four appearances.
Phillies 6, Nationals 3
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Wes Helms drove in the go-ahead run with a single in a three-run eighth inning to lead Philadelphia to its fourth straight win.
Antonio Alfonseca (1-0) pitched a scoreless eighth, and Tom Gordon worked the ninth for his fourth save.
Nationals starter Jason Bergmann allowed two runs - one earned - and three hits in six innings, leaving with a 3-2 lead. But Aaron Rowand hit reliever Saul Rivera's second pitch into the left-field seats to tie it at 3 in the seventh.
Chase Utley was hit by a pitch from Micah Bowie (0-1) leading off the bottom of the eighth. One out later, Jon Rauch walked Pat Burrell and Helms followed with a single to right-center that scored Utley to make it 4-3.
