Francisco Liriano turns in strong start
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Liriano allowed one run on three hits over six innings. He had some major control issues during the start, walking five. Liriano struck out two during the outing. Liriano was able to work around this early walks, tossing four scoreless frames to open the game. He gave up his only run in the fifth inning. Liriano allowed a leadoff double to open the frame. That runner advanced to third on a flyout. The run came home after Liriano induced a groundout for the second out of the inning. Liriano lasted one more inning, and was pulled after throwing 99 pitches.

With the win, Liriano improved to 6-10. He’ll take on the Braves in his next start.

Charlie Morton tosses five scoreless innings in win vs. Red Sox
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton earned a win Tuesday, allowing four hits and two walks in five scoreless innings while striking out six in his team's 4-0 victory over the Red Sox.

Morton (6-12) was already at 92 pitches when his spot in the batting order came up in the bottom of the fifth, so the team decided to go the rest of the way with the bullpen, which did an admirable job protecting the lead. Morton owns a 3.72 ERA and 126:57 K:BB ratio in 157 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Brewers Sunday.

Time off helps Starling Marte get back Tuesday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfielder Starling Marte is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, after sitting out three games with an elbow injury.

Marte was hit by a pitch in Thursday's game, and managed to make just one pinch-hitting appearance in the team's weekend series against the Cubs. That time off was enough for Marte to return to full health, as he is batting sixth and starting in left field Tuesday.
