Edinson Volquez takes tough first loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pirates starting pitcher Edinson Volquez continued his solid start to the season Tuesday, but had to settle for his first loss as he was outdueled in a 4-1 loss to the Reds.

Volquez made very few mistakes through his seven innings of work, but he didn't have much room for error with Johnny Cueto tossing his second complete game in a row. Volquez opened the game with six shutout innings, before allowing a pair of runs in the seventh inning, an that was enough to get him saddled with the loss.

Volquez was charged with two runs on five hits and a walk in his seven innings of work. He struck out three while throwing 71 of 100 pitches for strikes in the loss.

Volquez is now just 1-1 through four starts, despite a 1.93 ERA in 28 innings of work. He will try to get back over .500 in his next start Sunday in St. Louis.

Edinson Volquez used in relief Thursday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With the Pirates coming off a 16-inning win Wednesday, starting pitcher Edinson Volquez was used in relief during Thursday's 3-2 loss against the Cubs.

Volquez made just his sixth career relief appearance Thursday, though, he performed pretty well in the role. Volquez tossed two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and striking out two batters.

Trying to save their relievers, the Pirates used Volquez's appearance Thursday as his side session leading up to Sunday's start against the Cardinals. Manager Clint Hurdle said he will see how Volquez feels after Thursday's outing, but he's still scheduled to start Sunday.
