PITTSBURGH (AP) - Zach Duke allowed two runs over 7 2-3 innings
and Raul Chavez drove in three runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates
to a 5-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Wednesday night.
Duke (3-4) gave up seven hits, struck out two and walked two. He
was lifted after allowing a two-out walk to Miguel Tejada in the
eighth. The left-hander had his longest outing of the season and
won for the first time in seven career starts against Houston.
Matt Capps pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 12th save.
Ty Wigginton hit a solo home run and Carlos Lee had an RBI
single for the Astros, who have lost six of seven, scoring 10 runs
in that stretch.
