News
Pirates starting pitcher Edinson Volquez continued his strong start to the season Thursday, and finally picked up his first win as he took down the Brewers, 11-2.

Volquez seemed destined for another no-decision, exiting the game after seven strong innings with the score tied 2-2. Fortunately, the Pirates offense came alive in the next earning, granting him the win.

Volquez was charged with two runs on eight hits and a walk over seven innings of work. He struck out just three, but was efficient throughout the game, needing just 77 pitches to finish his seven innings of work.

Volquez has opened the season well, posting a 1.71 ERA in four appearances, three starts. He will look for his second win in his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the Reds.

News
Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen brought his season-opening power outage to an end Thursday, in an 11-2 win over the Brewers.

McCutchen's  homerless drought reached 15 games with the end of his last appearance, and he wasn't interested in letting it leak into a 16th game, as he took Yovani Gallardo deep in the bottom of the first for a 422-foot slam to center field. McCutchen drove in two runs on that swing, and added one more RBI on a fielder's choice later in the game, finishing 1 for 5 and extending his hitting streak to six games.

McCutchen has set the bar pretty high with his play in recent seasons, so his .262/.378/.410 line through 16 games is a disappointment so far. He has still driven in eight runs and score seven, with six extra-base hits in 61 at-bats.

Pirates starting pitcher Charlie Morton dropped his second decision in a row Friday, in a 5-3 loss to the Brewers.

Morton cruised to an early 2-0 lead after three innings of work, but ran into trouble soon after. The Brewers scored three runs in the fourth inning, and added one each in the fifth and sixth, both off the bat of Carlos Gomez.

Morton was charged with five earned runs on eight hits and a pair of walks in six innings, while striking out three batters. He is 0-2 with a 4.32 ERA heading into his fifth start, scheduled for Wednesday against Cincinnati.

Pirates pitcher Wandy Rodriguez threw just 66 pitches Saturday, giving up four earned runs on six hits and one walk in four innings while striking out three in his team's 8-7 loss to the Brewers.

Rodriguez didn't factor into the decision in the high-scoring game, and he's still looking to find his lost velocity as his fastball sat in the high 80s. He's posted a 7.65 ERA and 16:6 K:BB ratio in 20 innings. He is scheduled to take on the Reds at home Thursday.

Pirates starting pitcher Francisco Liriano dropped a third straight start Wednesday, as Pittsburgh managed just three hits off Johnny Cueto during a 4-0 loss to the Reds.

The Reds jumped out to an early 1-0 lead as Billy Hamilton scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the first inning. The deficit remained at one run until Joey Votto hit a two-run homer off Liriano with two outs in the seventh inning.

Liriano (0-3) was charged with three runs on six hits and three walks, while striking out seven in seven innings. He lowered his ERA from 4.00 to 3.96.

The veteran left-handed hurler is expected to be back on the hill Monday in a rematch with the Reds.

News
Pirates outfielder Starling Marte began Wednesday's game at Cincinnati on the bench before he had to replace Jose Tabata, who left the game after crashing into the outfield wall.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle wanted to give Marte a break after his second straight three-strikeout performance.

"I don't know if he's trying too hard, or if the swing is disconnected," Hurdle said of Marte, per MLB.com. "But the swing doesn't look right to me. I just think he needs a day off to rest himself mentally. So we'll back him away from the flame. We've been too soft at the top of the order."
