PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Jimmy Rollins hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth, Jonathan Pettibone had an impressive major league debut and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Monday night.

Pettibone allowed two runs and six hits, striking out six in 5 1-3 innings. The righty was pulled after 83 pitches and didn't get a decision.

Pedro Alvarez and Russell Martin hit solo homers for the Pirates.

On a chilly night when the temperature dipped below 50 degrees, the Phillies scratched out their second straight win to improve to 9-11.

Pirates starter A.J. Burnett gave up two runs and five hits, fanning seven in five innings. Jared Hughes (1-2) retired the first two batters he faced in the sixth before running into trouble.
