MLB:

San Francisco 3, Phillies 1-A. J. Burnett threw 130 pitches and blanked the Giants through eight innings Wednesday night. The problem for the Phillies was their offense could not solve Madison Bumgarner, who also tossed eight shutout innings. The Giants won the game in the ninth when former Phillie Hunter Pence blooped a bases-loaded triple to plate three runs. The Phils dropped their fourth straight game and are now 43-58. The series concludes Thursday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park.

Pirates 6, LA Dodgers 1-A four-run first inning was all the Pirates would need in the Wednesday night win in Pittsburgh. Russell Martin, Ike Davis, and Josh Harrison each drove in runs in the first inning as the Bucs got the win for Francisco Liriano. The lefty allowed just one run and four hits in seven innings. The Pirates are now 54-47 and are tied for second with St. Louis, 2-1/2 games behind Milwaukee in the NL Central. The Pirates start a weekend series in Colorado Friday night.

LA Angels 3, Orioles 2-Brian Matusz walked in the winning run in the bottom of the eighth as the Angels avoided the series sweep Wednesday night in Anaheim. Tommy Hunter took the loss as the Birds dropped to 55-45, now three games ahead of the Yankees and Blue Jays in the AL East. The O’s are in Seattle Thursday through Sunday.

STATE'S NEW TRANSPORTATION LAW BEARING FRUIT

A higher maximum speed limit was implemented this week on parts of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Next month, a part of Interstate 80 between DuBois and Clinton County will also see an increase from 65 to 70 miles per hour. The moves are part of the transportation law passed last year and it's being implement this summer in a couple of pilot projects. But the main intent of the law is to put more funding into fixing roads and bridges. You should notice a lot more roadwork this year thanks to the new law according to PennDOT secretary Barry Schoch. He says they're on track to do $2.3-billion in improvements. Schoch says they put about another $150-million in paving above what was planned, due to the harsh winter. He says by the end of paving projects, drivers should see significant improvements that otherwise would not have occurred.
