Braves 11, Pirates 3
PITTSBURGH -- Aaron Harang pitched into the ninth inning for his first win in five weeks, and Justin Upton hit a three-run home run and drove in five runs as streaking Atlanta routed sliding Pittsburgh.
Harang (10-7) helped the Braves win their fifth straight game and send the Pirates to their seventh consecutive loss. The right-hander worked 8 1/3 innings before being pulled after Ike Davis hit an RBI single. The Braves had lost in each of Harang's last six starts, though his personal record was 0-1 in that span.
Upton's homer in the third inning, his 24th of the season, put the Braves ahead 4-0 and ran his hitting streak to 10 games.
