Pirates 4, Tigers 1

PITTSBURGH — A.J. Burnett pitched six shutout innings to win his career-high-tying seventh consecutive start and the Pirates won for the fifth time in six games. Burnett extended his streak of starts that resulted in victories to the longest for a Pirate in 38 years. Dock Ellis won eight in a row in 1974. Detroit had just three baserunners against Burnett over the first five innings.
