Pirates 3B Josh Harrison on a tear at the plate of late
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison has turned things around at the plate. On May 10, general manager Neal Huntington suggested Harrison was pressing too much to prove his worth. Harrison is hitting .468 (22 for 47) in 11 games since those remarks and Huntington is estatic for him, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"It looks like a guy that's having fun playing the game again," Huntington said Sunday. "Just showing up with energy every day and trying to do everything in his power to help a club win versus trying to justify. It’s fun to watch him get back out there and be the guy he is."

Harrison extended his hitting streak to 11 on Sunday and noted his contract may have factored into his early struggles.

"The contract could have played a little into it," he said. "It's no secret I knew I was a contract guy. But that doesn't make me approach the game any different. It's just a matter of, you know, I got off to a rough start."

Harrison is now hitting .261 with 14 RBI in 157 at-bats this season.

Pirates OF Starling Marte goes 1 for 5 with HR in win
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfielder Starling Marte only recorded one hit against the Mets but made sure it counted in a big way. 

In Sunday afternoon's 9-1 victory, Marte hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning. The homer also scored Gregory Polanco and Andrew McCutchen. 

After the game, McCutchen said it was only a matter of time before Marte made someone pay. 

"Pick your poison. That's the way I look at it," McCutchen said, via MLB.com. "I guess they felt since Marte hadn't been swinging the bat the past few games, they could get him out. Nah, you can't do that either."

Marte finished 1 for 5 with two strikeouts. He's now slashing .278/.326/.513. 

Before the homer, Marte had gone 11 at-bats without a hit.

Pirates' Andrew McCutchen tees off in win over Mets
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning of Sunday's 9-1 win over the Mets. 

McCutchen took a 1-2 pitch to deep center field off of Jonathon Niese that also drove in Jose Tabata. That was McCutchen's seventh home run of the season. He finished the game 2 for 3 with a single and two walks. 

"You've got to have the confidence in yourself that regardless of what they're throwing up there, you're capable of being able to have some good at-bats and be able to be on the successful side of it," McCutchen said to MLB.com.

This was the second game in a row that McCutchen went yard and marked the third time in the past four games he's done so. After a horrible start in April, McCutchen is hitting .321 since May 1. 

McCutchen is slashing .261/.359/.464 for the season.

Pirates P Francisco Liriano tosses 12 strikeouts in win
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano struck out a season-high 12 batters in Sunday afternoon's 9-1 victory over the Mets. 

Liriano was sharp through the game, throwing 112 pitches and only allowing two walks and six hits. His previous best this season was on May 8 against the Cardinals when he tossed 10 strikeouts. 

"I was executing pitches and not trying to do too much," Liriano said, via the Associated Press. "I just stayed calm and I got a lot of swings and misses today. Everything was working down."

Liriano went six innings before being relieved. He now has a 3.86 ERA this season. 

His next start is scheduled for Friday against the Padres.
