Edinson Volquez surrenders five runs in wild-card loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Edinson Volquez took a loss in Wednesday's wild-card game, giving up five earned runs on five hits and three walks in five-plus innings while striking out three in his team's 8-0 defeat against the Giants.

Volquez (0-1) did a fine job through three innings but ran into trouble quickly in the fourth, giving up back-to-back singles before a walk loaded the bases for Brandon Crawford, who smashed a grand slam over the right field wall to put the Giants ahead for good. Volquez was pulled after issuing a walk to start the sixth inning, with the runner coming around to score after the starter had departed. It's a disappointing performance after Volquez posted a 1.08 ERA in five September starts. He hadn't taken a loss since July 21.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Edinson Volquez picks up no decision after strong start
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Edinson Volquez turned in a scoreless start Saturday against the Brewers.

Volquez allowed three hits over seven scoreless frames. He struck out six and issued three walks during the appearance. Though he was mostly unhittable during the outing, Volquez never seriously flirted with a no-hitter. He gave up a double in the first inning, but was able to get out of the frame without giving up any runs. Volquez put two runners on base during the third inning, but was otherwise able to prevent multiple base runners during the start.

Volquez left with the game tied, picking up a no-decision. He’ll take on the Braves in his next start.
