PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh's Gregory Polanco and Josh Harrison had three hits each and Vance Worley outdueled Ian Kennedy as the Pirates beat the San Diego Padres 2-1 on Friday night.

The win moved the Pirates (62-53) a season-high nine games over .500.

Worley (5-1) struck a season-high seven in seven innings and gave up one run, five hits and a walk.

Kennedy (8-10) was pulled after six innings and allowed two runs - one earned - and seven hits he walked three and struck out five.

Tony Watson preserved the one-run lead with a perfect eighth and Mark Melancon picked up his career-high 21st save by striking out the side in the ninth.

San Diego scored in the first on Everth Cabrera's leadoff double, a sacrifice and Seth Smith's sacrifice fly.

Pittsburgh scored twice in the bottom of the inning. Harrison led off with a triple and scored on Polanco's single. Polanco later scored on Russell Martin's sacrifice fly.
