Pirates closer Mark Melancon is unavailable to pitch Sunday after racking up three saves in the last three days, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Melancon has dealt with some velocity issues this April and owns a 5.79 ERA and 5:4 K:BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings, but he hasn't surrendered a run in any of his three appearances over the last three days. With the closer getting a scheduled break, the team could turn to lefty Tony Watson or righty Jared Hughes in a save opportunity Sunday.

News
Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen is in the midst of a 0-15 slump in the past five games he's played in. McCutchen's batting average is down to .175 while striking out five times in this span. 

"That's baseball … it's a game of adjustments," McCutchen said, via MLB.com. "I'll get there, it's a matter of time," McCutchen said. "I'm not focused on the outcome, just on the feeling. And I'm feeling good, so the outcome will be there. Long as I feel good, I'll get good results."

McCutchen and the Pirates take on the Diamondbacks Sunday at 4:10 p.m.

Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett allowed one run on five hits in seven innings of work in Pittsburgh's 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks Saturday. 

Burnett worked efficiently through his start, only running into one issue in the second inning. Burnett allowed a single to Chris Owings, who then stole second base. Tuffy Gosewich then singled to right to bring home Arizona's only run. 

Burnett, who remains 0-1 on the year, lowered his ERA to 1.80 and added four strikeouts to his totals.

News
Pirates pitcher Tony Watson was able to pitch out of a jam Saturday to deliver a scoreless eighth inning and eventually earn the win in his team's 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Watson (1-1) gave up two hits in the outing and had men on second and third with one out, but was able to record a pop out and strikeout to escape the inning.

"There is nobody he doesn't challenge," manager Clint Hurdle said after the game, per MLB.com. "He's been pitching this way for two-plus years. He's cool. He's got a slow heartbeat. He's not going to get rattled."

Pitching coach Ray Searage visited Watson with two men in scoring position and one out, but there was no talk of issuing an intentional walk to the next batter.

"No. Right away, we got with Ray and said we got a plan to get him out," Hurdle said. "We felt we were in an advantage situation with our guy on the mound. We bet on our guy."

Watson gave up three earned runs in his season debut but has been excellent since. Saturday's outing gives him a 3.00 ERA and 11:0 K:BB ratio in 12 innings.

News
Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano pitched a scoreless 6 1/3 innings in Sunday afternoon's 8-0 win over the Diamondbacks. 

Liriano picked up his first win of the season in the shutout effort. He struck out seven batters and walked six.

"I was able to get away from trying to do too much for a couple of innings, then, in the last one, I was kind of rushing it again," said Liriano to MLB.com. "Especially early, I got behind in the count a lot."

He only surrendered two hits. His ERA is now 2.22 for the season and he has a 1-1 record. 

"The wins get everybody's attention," manager Clint Hurdle said, nodding. "So he very well could be underappreciated. But we like having him a lot , giving him the ball every fifth day."

Liriano is scheduled to make his next start on May 2 against the Cardinals.
