PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Virgil Vasquez went six innings for his first
major league win and the Pittsburgh Pirates got home runs from
three unlikely power sources in a 5-3 victory over the Kansas City
Royals on Friday night.
Vasquez (1-0), recalled by the Pirates after Thursday's game to
make his first start since Aug. 31, 2007, allowed two runs and four
hits while striking out seven.
Nyjer Morgan, Jason Jaramillo and Jack Wilson homered for
Pittsburgh, which has won three straight since snapping a five-game
losing streak.
Mark Teahen hit his ninth homer and Miguel Olivo went 2 for 4
with an RBI for the Royals, who have lost seven of nine.
Matt Capps converted his 11th consecutive save opportunity and
17th overall with a shaky ninth.
