      Pirates SP Jeff Locke gives up five runs in loss to Dodgers

      Pirates starting pitcher Jeff Locke (8-11) allowed five runs (four earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out four across in a loss to the Dodgers on Friday. Locke had allowed just two runs on seven hits over his two previous starts, so the regression was disappointing to see him struggle on Friday. On the other hand, it was against the Dodgers and Zack Greinke and that's a tough matchup for any pitcher. A 4.48 ERA and 1.41 WHIP are less than desirable and he'll likely miss out on making any starts in the playoffs with the depth of the Pirates rotation. Locke has to pitch in dreaded Coors Field on Thursday in his next start.

      Pirates SP Jeff Locke avenges loss to Brewers on Saturday

      The last time Pirates starter Jeff Locke faced the Brewers he was pounded for five runs on nine hits in 3 2/3 innings. He got his revenge Saturday. Locke shut down Milwaukee over 6 1/3 innings. He allowed one runs on three hits with two walks and seven strikeouts, his highest total since June 17. The lone run on his ledger scored on a sacrifice fly by Luis Sardinas after he was removed from the game. It marked his finest performance since an Independence Day blanking of Cleveland.

      Brewers pound Pirates SP Jeff Locke for five runs Wednesday

      Jeff Locke is no lock to remain in the Pirates rotation if he continues to pitch like he did Wednesday night in Milwaukee. Locke was clobbered for five runs on nine hits in just 3 2/3 innings before his merciful removal from the game. He walked none and fanned two in lowering his record to 7-9 and raising his ERA to 4.66. Two doubles and a single in the first inning resulted in two runs. He continued to get singled and doubled to death until he was through. Locke has just one quality start over his last eight outings.

      Pirates' Jeff Locke serves up two homers in no-decision Wednesday

      Pirates starter Jeff Locke was given an early lead on Wednesday, but wasn't able to hang around for the win in the 7-5 victory over the Cubs. The Pirates were up 3-0 after three innings, but the Cubs started chipping away, and Locke left the game with the score tied 4-4. Overall, Locke allowed four runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings. He walked one and struck out four, and did not factor in the final decision. He was done in by a big sixth inning by the Cubs, which included a two-run home run by Kyle Schwarber, and a game-tying solo shot by Anthony Rizzo. Locke has had some trouble going deep into games recently, failing to pitch six innings in four of his past six starts.

      Pirates SP Jeff Locke survives shaky second inning to pick up win

      Pirates starter Jeff Locke was decent against the Reds on Friday. The left-hander allowed three runs on five hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out five, as he picked up his sixth win of the year in the 5-4 victory. Locke (6-6, 4.21 ERA) allowed all three of his runs in the second inning, including a two-run home run by Ivan De Jesus. But he was able to settle in from there and gave the Pirates' offense a chance to rally back and take the lead. Locke had a good month of July, going 2-2 with a 3.27 ERA in five starts.

      Pirates' Jeff Locke gives up four runs in no-decision on Friday

      Pirates left-hander Jeff Locke had a rocky start against the Nationals on Friday, but left with a no-decision in the 7-5 victory. Locke allowed four runs on four hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out five, throwing 57 of his 88 pitches for strikes. Locke allowed all four runs in the fourth inning, after the Pirates had given him a 2-0 advantage. Pittsburgh would rally to regain the lead again, however, and Locke wound up not factoring in the final decision. He owns a 2.89 ERA over his last six starts, but has just one win over that stretch.
