Drew helps streaking Arizona rally for win

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH -- Stephen Drew hit a tiebreaking two-run single in the eighth inning and the streaking Arizona Diamondbacks rallied to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Alex Romero also had a tying RBI single in the eighth for Arizona, which has won four in a row and six of seven. Ryan Roberts homered for the third time in two games.

Andy LaRoche and Garrett Jones went deep for the Pirates, who have lost four in a row and nine of 11.

Jones hit his team-best 11th homer off Chad Qualls to cut it to 4-3 with one out in the ninth. But Qualls got Steve Pearce to ground out and struck out LaRoche to pick up his 21st save in 25 opportunities.
