Ohlendorf sharp, Pirates beat Brewers again 5-2

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Ross Ohlendorf allowed only one run over seven-plus innings, Delwyn Young and Lastings Milledge homered and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2 on Tuesday night.

Garret Jones had two hits and scored twice and Andy LaRoche was on base four times with a run and an RBI for Pittsburgh, which won for only the fifth time since July 24.

Ohlendorf (11-8) has three of those victories and is 4-1 with a 2.72 ERA since the All-Star break.

Prince Fielder homered for third consecutive game to give him 32 and a majors-high 108 RBIs.

The last-place Pirates' only pitcher with a winning record, Ohlendorf (11-8) gave up five hits and two walks with five strikeouts. He hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his past seven starts.
