Herrera's triple in 8th lifts Phillies over Pirates 2-1

PHILADELPHIA (AP) On yet another chilly April night in their ballpark, the Phillies stayed hot at home.

Odubel Herrera hit a go-ahead triple in the eighth inning to lift Philadelphia to a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

Herrera, Cesar Hernandez, Carlos Santana and Maikel Franco each had two hits for the Phillies, who have won nine of 11 overall while improving to 7-1 at home. It is Philadelphia's best start at home since it won seven of eight to begin the 1981 season.
