PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Freddy Sanchez's three-run double in the fifth inning broke a scoreless tie, leading Zach Duke and the streaking Pittsburgh Pirates past the Atlanta Braves 5-0 Monday in the first game of a doubleheader.
Duke (2-2) shook off five walks and three errors behind him to limit Atlanta to five hits over six shutout innings, and the Pirates won their season-high sixth in a row.
The Braves lost their seventh straight on the road. Atlanta has the majors' best home record (14-4) and worst road record (4-14).
