Locke pitches Pirates past Hamels, Phillies 2-0

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Jeff Locke pitched six smooth innings of 2-hit ball and Gaby Sanchez homered off Cole Hamels to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates over the Philadelphia Phillies 2-0 on Tuesday night.

Locke (2-1) struck out six and walked two. After wriggling out of a jam in the fourth he retired his last eight batters - striking out 3 of the final four.

Sanchez also doubled and Brandon Inge had an RBI double in his Pirates debut to help Pittsburgh win for the fifth time in seven games.

After opening the season with a pair of poor outings, Hamels (0-3) pitched well for the third straight start but was hurt by a lack of run support again. In eight innings, the left-hander gave up two runs on seven hits with six strikeouts and one walk.
