Josh Harrison had a tiebreaking, two-out single in the seventh inning after Jose Tabata hit a sacrifice fly and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 Saturday night for their fourth straight win.
Charlie Morton worked into the sixth inning to snap a lengthy losing streak and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Washington Nationals 4-3 on Friday night.

Pirates left-hander Francisco Liriano did not allow a hit until the sixth inning against a struggling and depleted Nationals lineup, and Pedro Alvarez homered off an otherwise-dominant Stephen Strasburg, leading Pittsburgh past Washington 4-2 Wednesday night.
The future will only get brighter for Bryce Harper, who has a good chance to develop into a perennial All-Star and MVP candidate.
