Middle-inning struggles doom Pirates SP Charlie Morton to defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

If any Pirates starter was going to wreck the momentum, at least temporarily, it seemed destined to be Charlie Morton. He has been pitching poorly and his last performance ended their three-game winning streak.

This time it ended a four-game winning streak. Morton allowed five on six hits in six innings to take the loss against Colorado on Sunday. He walked two and whiffed six.

Morton breezed through the first three without allowing a hit before the roof caved in. He was sent reeling by four straight hits to start the fourth, including a double by Nolan Arenado and triple by Ben Paulsen that resulted in three runs. His own two-base error tallied two more in the sixth.

He has given up 26 runs over his last 54 2/3 innings and has lost four of his last six decisions.

Pirates closer Mark Melancon earns shaky 43rd save
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Pirates sizzling closer Mark Melancon was merely mortal Saturday against Colorado, but still nailed down his league-leading 43rd save.

Melancon arrived with a 4-1 lead and promptly allowed a single and two-run homer to Nick Hundley. He then surrendered a single and needed a double-play lineout to finally end the drama.

It marked the first time he has given up more than one run in an appearance since April 21.

Pirates SP J.A. Happ remains on a roll with third straight win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Pirates starter J.A. Happ continued to cut down on his walks Saturday against Colorado. The result was a third straight win.

Happ has found his control since arriving in Pittsburgh after struggling with it throughout his career. He walked just one in 5 2/3 innings with the Rockies in town. He allowed one run on five hits with two strikeouts.

The only tally came on a groundout in the third inning.

Happ has been on a tremendous roll with only two runs allowed in 23 innings over his last four starts.
