PHOENIX (AP) - Andrew McCutchen drove in two runs, Garrett Jones homered and the Pittsburgh Pirates snapped a five-game losing streak by beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3 on Monday night.
McCutchen doubled in a run in the Pirates' three-run first inning and broke a 3-all tie with his sacrifice fly after Starling Marte's leadoff triple in the fifth.
Jeanmar Gomez (1-0) got the victory in relief of Wandy Rodriguez, who left after 2 1-3 innings because of tightness in his left hamstring. Trevor Cahill (0-2) allowed four runs and four hits in five innings for the Diamondbacks, who had won four in a row and were coming off a three-game sweep at Milwaukee.
Alfredo Marte drove in a run for Arizona with his first major league hit.
