PITTSBURGH, June 23 (UPI) -- Brad Lincoln took a no-hitter into the sixth inning Saturday and the Pittsburgh Pirates used his strong start to post a 4-1 interleague win over Detroit.

Lincoln (4-2) didn't issue a hit until Ramon Santiago's leadoff single in the sixth. The right-hander logged his first win since May 14, ultimately yielding one run on two hits with one walk and seven strikeouts.

Juan Cruz, Tony Watson and Jason Grilli combined for two scoreless frames and Joel Hanrahan picked up his 19th save as the Pirates clinched the three-game series at PNC Park.

Andrew McCutchen blasted a three-run homer for second-place Pittsburgh, which remained one game behind Cincinnati atop the National League Central after the Reds defeated Minnesota Saturday.

Max Scherzer (6-5) absorbed the loss, yielding three runs on three hits in a six-inning stint.

Miguel Cabrera homered for Detroit.
