Handcuffed by Reds' Leake, Pirates lose 5th straight 3-0

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates knew Mike Leake's game plan but it still didn't matter.

Leake worked eight innings for his sixth straight victory over the Bucs and Marlon Byrd homered for the second game in a row as the Cincinnati Reds beat the skidding Pirates 3-0 on Wednesday night.

Leake (2-1) allowed six hits and has not lost to the Pirates in 15 starts, dating to 2012. He struck out two, had no walks and also had an RBI double for the 71st hit of his six-year career.
