Charlie Morton allowed one hit in three scoreless innings, helping the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday.
 
   Morton did not strike out a batter, but he kept Detroit off the bases during his short stint, aside from Don Kelly's second-inning double.
 
   Kelly had two hits for the Tigers, and Austin Jackson hit a two-run homer in the fourth for Detroit's runs.
 
   Pittsburgh scored three times in the third off Rick Porcello. Jaff Decker brought a run home with a bunt single, Gregory Polanco hit an RBI double and Pedro Alvarez added a run-scoring groundout.
