Former Mustang Correia wins fifth straight road game for Pirates

Former Cal Poly pitcher Kevin Correia scored a victory and revenge over his former team on Wednesday. The right-handed pitcher earned the victory as the Pittsburgh Pirates beat San Diego 7-4.

Ryan Doumit's grand slam highlighted a six-run third inning for the Pirates, who never looked back. Correia allowed two runs and five hits in six-plus innings and improved to 5-2 on the season. The Padres didn't bring him back after he went 10-10 with a 5.40 ERA last year.

Correia has won all five of his road starts this season and posted a 1.55 ERA. The former Mustang became the first Pirates pitcher to win his first five outings away from home in a season since Don Robinson won his first seven road starts in 1982.

The Pirates are playing well away from Pittsburgh. They've won five road series already, one more than they did all of last year.They have 11 road wins already, a mark they didn't reach until June 28.
