Edinson Volquez strikes out five in quality start Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Edinson Volquez didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up three earned runs on six hits and two walks in six innings while striking out five in his team's 4-3 loss to the Phillies.

Volquez surrendered RBI singles in the first and second innings, but his team was able to come back in the next half-inning after each and erase the deficit. The Pittsburgh starter then allowed the game to be tied anew on a fifth-inning solo home run. Volquez owns a 3.36 ERA and 119:62 K:BB ratio in 171 2/3 innings after posting his third straight quality start. He's scheduled to face the Cubs Sunday.

Edinson Volquez shuts down Cardinals through six
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Resurgent Pirates right-hander Edinson Volquez continued to perform well Wednesday in St. Louis. He would have won his fourth straight decision had his team scored for him.

Volquez yielded just three hits in 6 1/3 scoreless innings. He walked two, fanned five and took a no-hitter into the fifth inning. He was removed after allowing a leadoff walk and sacrifice in the seventh.

In compiling five quality starts in his last six outings, Volquez has surrendered just six earned runs in 39 innings pitched to lower his ERA from 3.91 to 3.31. He will attempt to lower it further Tuesday in Philadelphia.
