Jung Ho Kang homers in back-to-back games for Pirates
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang had a terrific day at the plate in Wednesday's 10-4 win over the Twins. Kang went 3 for 4 and belted a solo home run in the second inning to give the Pirates a quick 1-0 lead.

The home run was Kang's seventh of the year, and his second in as many games. The Pirates' rookie has been taking full advantage of his increased playing time. Kang is batting .474 with the two home runs over his past 10 games.

Pirates SP Francisco Liriano beats former team on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Pirates starter Francisco Liriano allowed a season-high 10 hits on Wednesday, but he came away with his seventh win of the season. Liriano went 5 2/3 innings, giving up three runs (two earned) with four strikeouts and no walks in the 10-4 win over the Twins. 

Liriano (7-6, 2.92 ERA) got off to a shaky start, as the Twins had a 3-1 lead after the third inning. But he was able to settle in from there, as he gave his club a chance to rally and take the lead in the middle innings. A high pitch count--106 pitches through two outs in the sixth--led to Liriano's early exit, costing him a chance at a quality start.

The veteran left-hander is 3-0 with a 2.13 ERA over his past six starts.
