Vance Worley tossed eight scoreless innings and Russell Martin stroked another clutch hit as the Pittsburgh Pirates edged the Milwaukee Brewers 1-0 on Sunday to inch closer to the postseason.

Martin's single over second base scored Andrew McCutchen in the seventh, two days after the catcher belted a three-run game winning homer to beat the Brewers in the opening game of the series.
