MILWAUKEE (AP) -Jose Bautista and Ronny Paulino hit consecutive home runs in a four-run seventh inning, and the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied for a 4-2 victory Thursday night that stopped the Milwaukee Brewers' four-game winning streak.
Tom Gorzelanny (4-1) won his fourth straight start, giving up two runs and six hits in seven innings. Salomon Torres pitched the ninth for his ninth save in 12 chances.
Dave Bush (2-3) allowed four runs and six hits in seven innings, allowing just one runner past second base in the first six innings.
Astros 7, Reds 5
HOUSTON (AP) - Luke Scott hit a go-ahead, two-run double in a three-run eighth off Mike Stanton (1-1) and Craig Biggio followed with an RBI double as Cincinnati overcame a 5-4 deficit.
Dan Wheeler got three outs for his fifth save in six chances, inducing Ken Griffey Jr. to ground into a game-ending double play with two on. Houston, which overcame Griffey's 566th homer, took two of three for its first series win since sweeping two games at Cincinnati on April 18-19.
Chad Qualls (3-1) inherited a 4-2 lead in the eighth from Wandy Rodriguez but allowed Brandon Phillips' RBI triple, Griffey's tying single and Jeff Conine's sacrifice fly.
