Pirates pitcher Jared Hughes pitched a scoreless ninth inning Monday to pick up his first win of the season in his team's 6-5 victory over the Reds.

Hughes (1-0) was making his season debut after being recalled from Triple-A earlier Monday. He surrendered two hits but was able to escape the ninth inning unscatched, and the Pirates broke a 5-5 tie in the bottom of the inning with a walkoff single. Hughes pitched six scoreless innings in the minors before his promotion.

Pirates closer Jason Grilli blew a save for a second straight day Sunday against the Brewers. Though, he didn't take the loss Sunday like he did Saturday.

Grilli entered Sunday's game in the top of the ninth with Pittsburgh leading 2-1. But Ryan Braun tied the game two batters into the ninth with a solo home run. Grilli bounced back to retire the next two batters, which included a strikeout of Jonathan Lucroy, but the damage was done.

Milwaukee would win 3-2 in 14 innings.

News
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.

Injuries
Knee - 15-day DL. Out until at least mid-May (Updated - 4/23/14)
News
The Pirates have yet to give many details on the extent of the knee injury that forced starting pitcher Wandy Rodriguez to the disabled list Monday. Manager Clint Hurdle did tell MLB.com that Rodriguez has the knee drained Monday, though that doesn't really much of a clear idea as the injury's extent.

"You can get a knee drained and have to get it drained again in two months," Hurdle said. "I know people who have had their knee drained a couple of times and had surgery in the winter. It depends on the guy. We'll just have to wait and see."

Rodriguez underwent an MRI on the knee Monday, but the results have not been made public yet.

Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano didn't factor into the decision Monday after giving up five runs (four earned) on seven hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out four in his team's 6-5 win over the Reds.

Liriano is still looking for his first win of the season after letting the first two batters of the eighth inning reach base, as both came around to score. He did avoid surrendering a home run for the first time in four starts. Liriano owns a 4.22 ERA and 32:12 K:BB ratio in 32 innings. He'll take on the Cardinals in St. Louis Saturday.

News
After making a slight change to his pitching mechanics this spring, Pirates reliever Bryan Morris is already seeing positive results to start the 2014 season, per MLB.com.

Morris is averaging 95.2 mph on his fastball, which is up from 94.1 mph last season. He also has added some sink to the pitch.

Morris' strikeout rate is also up, as he is striking out 7.0 batters per nine innings after striking out 5.1 batters per nine in 2013.

"Early in the spring, we made a slight adjustment with my mechanics and basically we simplified everything," Morris said. "When I simplify everything, everything kind of just started falling in line and that just made it easier for me on the mound. All I had to worry about was going out and throwing the ball in the zone and competing.

"I got a little better with my fastball command in spring training, and that allowed me to attack with my fastball and then use my other pitches later in the count."
