Pirates OF Gregory Polanco gets rare start in second hole
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco has batted in four different spots in the lineup this season, but has not filled the No. 2 hole since April 26.

That is, until Monday.

Polanco provided some encouragement by managing his first two-hit in two weeks Sunday. He came off the bench to smack those two hits.

Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang grabbing some pine Monday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Pirates shortstop Jung Ho Kang is on a seven-game hitting streak that will not reach eight Monday unless he emerges from the bench to hit safely. He is out of the lineup against Miami.

Kang is 11-for-29 on his recent tear and owns a fine slash line of .304/.369/.435.

Pirates SP Charlie Morton back; RP Radhames Liz designated
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Pirates had already announced that right-hander Charlie Morton was set to start Monday against Miami, but they had to take care of some business first.

That was accomplished when they reinstated him from the 15-day disabled list. His start will be his first since he underwent labrum surgery in September.

The team designated fellow righty Radhames Liz for assignment to make room for Morton.

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.
