Joakim Soria replaces Mark Melancon for first Pirates' save
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Pirates reliever Joakim Soria replaced former Pittsburgh closer Mark Melancon with one out in the ninth inning. 

Soria retired both batters he faced to earn his first save for the Pirates. He was traded from Detroit earlier in the week. 

Melancon allowed a double and a hit batter before being ejected with the tying run at the plate.

Pirates' Charlie Morton wins for first time since June
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton improved to 7-4 on the year with a win over Cincinnati. 

The victory snapped a five-start winless streak for Morton. He was 0-3 with two no-decisions since his last win, on June 27. 

Morton pitched seven shutout innings, allowing five hits. He didn't walk a batter and struck out a season-high seven.

Pirates closer Mark Melancon ejected after HBP
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Pirates closer Mark Melancon lost his shot at his 32nd consecutive converted save Sunday when he was tossed out of the game after hitting Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart with a pitch.

The game featured several hit batsmen and got ugly when the benches emptied.

Melancon has not allowed an earned run since May 11.

Pirates SP A.J. Burnett will decline surgery if recommended
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Surgery is not an option for Pirates starter A.J. Burnett even if doctors tell him he has torn elbow ligament. He would rather pitch through it than undergo a season-ending procedure.

He went on the disabled list Friday with what was described as right elbow inflammation, but an MRI scheduled for Monday could reveal it to be worse.

"I'm prepared for (being told) it just needs some rest and if it's ... the worst (outcome)," Burnett told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "It's a matter of doing enough treatment and building up some pain tolerance so I can stay on mound in the stretch run."

That might be difficult considering how poorly Burnett has performed since the All-Star break. He has surrendered 18 runs on 32 hits in 16 innings and has lost his last two decisions.

Struggling Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez benched Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Pirates are giving newly acquired third baseman Aramis Ramirez his first break Sunday. He is out of the lineup Sunday against the host Reds.

Ramirez has struggled at the plate since his arrival. He has hit safely in just two of seven games with Pittsburgh and is batting .133 (4-for-30) with no home runs.
