NH's Locke wins again for Pirates; now 5-1 on year

MILWAUKEE - Pedro Alvarez belted a pair of home runs and Conway, N.H.'s Jeff Locke tossed six scoreless innings as visiting Pittsburgh evened the series at one game apiece with a 5-2 win over Milwaukee.

Andrew McCutchen and Neil Walker connected on solo shots and Locke (5-1) permitted only three hits to win his fifth straight decision as the Pirates improved to 12-3 in their last 15 games.

Carlos Gomez hit a pair of solo homers to provide the only offense for Milwaukee, which lost for the 17th time in its past 22 games. Mike Fiers (1-3), making his second start of the season in place of Kyle Lohse (elbow), allowed four runs on five hits and all three homers.

McCutchen lined a shot into the seats in the top of the first inning for his fourth homer in 10 career at-bats against Fiers. Alvarez followed a single by Walker with another blast in the second for a 3-0 lead before Walker went deep in the fourth.

Locke made the lead stand up by extending his scoreless streak to 14 innings, marking the fourth time in seven outings that he has not allowed a run.
