News
Travis Snider has continued to take away at-bats from far-more-ballyhooed Pirates rookie Gregory Polanco.

Despite an 0-for-5 night on Friday, Snider has earned the playing time. He owned an 11-game hitting streak previously in which he had six multi-hit games, scored seven runs and rose his batting average from .242 to .277. Polanco, on the other hand, has just one hit in his last 27 at-bats.

"Snider's been torrid," Clift Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Friday. "Thirty-five games left, another day, another opportunity for Polanco to get some work done. The good side of it is when we've  had some time to settle him down a little bit, when he has been back plugged in he's been very fresh and usually shows a lot of improvement."

Hurdle added that he wants Polanco to revert to the swing that proved successful upon his promotion from the minors. He began the season on an 11-game hitting streak that vaulted his average to .365 and allowed him to score 11 runs.

"I think we're trying to show him the fact once his front foot hits, that his hands are set in a position," Hurdle said. "There's been, I think, a little more movement than necessary with his hands. ... Sometimes you don't know whether it's fatigue, whether it's anxiety, whether it's the ptiches, but they're pitching him up a lot more. That's no secret. He's doing a lot more up-chasing than he had done when he first got here."

Pirates first baseman Ike Davis delivered in a big spot Tuesday, smacking a pinch-hit three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to key his team's 5-2 win over the Cardinals.

Davis isn't playing every day with Pedro Alvarez moving across the diamond, and his home run was just his second one in August. He has hit .238/.352/.379 with nine home runs and 42 RBI in 298 at-bats.

News
Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano tossed a solid start Monday against the Pirates. 

Liriano allowed four hits over six scoreless innings. He struck out eight and issued three walks during the start. Liriano lost a perfect game early, as a runner reached on an error in the second inning. He did not allow a clean hit until there were two outs in the fourth inning. Liriano nearly got himself in trouble in the fifth, but managed to get out of it. He loaded the bases with one out, but was able to induce an inning-ending double play. Liriano pitched to one batter in the seventh, but was replaced after giving up a single.

The Cardinals managed to mount a comeback, giving Liriano a no-decision. He’ll take on the Reds in his next start.
