Richard pitches into the eighth, Padres top Pirates 6-2

PITTSBURGH (AP) Clayton Richard's plan was simple.

After the San Diego Padres gave him a three-run lead in the first inning, Richard decided to attack the zone early and often. It worked.

Richard (3-5) allowed two runs in 7 1/3 innings, Christian Villanueva homered and drove in two runs, and the Padres beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-2 on Saturday night.
