CINCINNATI (AP) - Homer Bailey pitched seven solid innings and the Cincinnati Reds came up with just enough offense to squeeze out a 2-1 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday night for a three-game sweep of the Pirates.

The Reds (87-57) scored both of their runs on outs while moving 30 games over .500 for the first time since they were 96-66 on Oct. 3, 1999. They widened their lead in the NL Central over second-place St. Louis to 11 1/2 games.

Bailey (11-9) allowed six hits and one run with two walks and four strikeouts to extend his career high in victories.

Pittsburgh starter A.J. Burnett (15-7) allowed five hits and two runs with two walks and eight strikeouts.
