Pedro Alvarez mashes sixth home run Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez hit his sixth home run of the season Thurday against the Brewers.

Alvarez managed to find himself on base four times during the game. He singled in the bottom of the fourth, and walked in both the sixth and seventh inning. In the bottom of the eighth, he clubbed a three-run home run off a 93 mph fastball from Wei-Chung Wang.

Alvarez finished the game 2 for 3, with one run scored and three RBI.

Andrew McCutchen finally slugs first homer
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen brought his season-opening power outage to an end Thursday, in an 11-2 win over the Brewers.

McCutchen's  homerless drought reached 15 games with the end of his last appearance, and he wasn't interested in letting it leak into a 16th game, as he took Yovani Gallardo deep in the bottom of the first for a 422-foot slam to center field. McCutchen drove in two runs on that swing, and added one more RBI on a fielder's choice later in the game, finishing 1 for 5 and extending his hitting streak to six games.

McCutchen has set the bar pretty high with his play in recent seasons, so his .262/.378/.410 line through 16 games is a disappointment so far. He has still driven in eight runs and score seven, with six extra-base hits in 61 at-bats.

Edinson Volquez gets late help in first win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pirates starting pitcher Edinson Volquez continued his strong start to the season Thursday, and finally picked up his first win as he took down the Brewers, 11-2.

Volquez seemed destined for another no-decision, exiting the game after seven strong innings with the score tied 2-2. Fortunately, the Pirates offense came alive in the next earning, granting him the win.

Volquez was charged with two runs on eight hits and a walk over seven innings of work. He struck out just three, but was efficient throughout the game, needing just 77 pitches to finish his seven innings of work.

Volquez has opened the season well, posting a 1.71 ERA in four appearances, three starts. He will look for his second win in his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the Reds.

Francisco Liriano dealt third straight loss
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates starting pitcher Francisco Liriano dropped a third straight start Wednesday, as Pittsburgh managed just three hits off Johnny Cueto during a 4-0 loss to the Reds.

The Reds jumped out to an early 1-0 lead as Billy Hamilton scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the first inning. The deficit remained at one run until Joey Votto hit a two-run homer off Liriano with two outs in the seventh inning.

Liriano (0-3) was charged with three runs on six hits and three walks, while striking out seven in seven innings. He lowered his ERA from 4.00 to 3.96.

The veteran left-handed hurler is expected to be back on the hill Monday in a rematch with the Reds.
