Pirates' Francisco Liriano earns first win of season
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Francisco Liriano pitched a scoreless 6 1/3 innings in Sunday afternoon's 8-0 win over the Diamondbacks. 

Liriano picked up his first win of the season in the shutout effort. He struck out seven batters and walked six.

"I was able to get away from trying to do too much for a couple of innings, then, in the last one, I was kind of rushing it again," said Liriano to MLB.com. "Especially early, I got behind in the count a lot."

He only surrendered two hits. His ERA is now 2.22 for the season and he has a 1-1 record. 

"The wins get everybody's attention," manager Clint Hurdle said, nodding. "So he very well could be underappreciated. But we like having him a lot , giving him the ball every fifth day."

Liriano is scheduled to make his next start on May 2 against the Cardinals.

Pirates' Mark Melancon unavailable Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates closer Mark Melancon is unavailable to pitch Sunday after racking up three saves in the last three days, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Melancon has dealt with some velocity issues this April and owns a 5.79 ERA and 5:4 K:BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings, but he hasn't surrendered a run in any of his three appearances over the last three days. With the closer getting a scheduled break, the team could turn to lefty Tony Watson or righty Jared Hughes in a save opportunity Sunday.

Pirates' Andrew McCutchen hoping to break out of slump
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen is in the midst of a 0-15 slump in the past five games he's played in. McCutchen's batting average is down to .175 while striking out five times in this span. 

"That's baseball … it's a game of adjustments," McCutchen said, via MLB.com. "I'll get there, it's a matter of time," McCutchen said. "I'm not focused on the outcome, just on the feeling. And I'm feeling good, so the outcome will be there. Long as I feel good, I'll get good results."

McCutchen and the Pirates take on the Diamondbacks Sunday at 4:10 p.m.
