Edinson Volquez fantastic during no decision
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Edinson Volquez tossed a fantastic start Friday against the Reds.

Volquez gave up one run on three hits over 7 2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked three during the outing. Volquez was exceptional to open the game. He didn’t give up a hit until the seventh inning. Volquez gave up another hit against the next batter, but managed to work his way out of the inning. He wasn’t as fortunate in the eighth inning. Volquez put two men on during the inning, and was pulled from the game. Tony Watson gave up a run-scoring single after Volquez left. The run was charged to Volquez.

Volquez left with the game tied, picking up the no-decision. He’ll take on the Cardinals in his next start.
