by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates first baseman Ike Davis delivered in a big spot Tuesday, smacking a pinch-hit three-run home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to key his team's 5-2 win over the Cardinals.

Davis isn't playing every day with Pedro Alvarez moving across the diamond, and his home run was just his second one in August. He has hit .238/.352/.379 with nine home runs and 42 RBI in 298 at-bats.

Melancon's save was his first in two weeks, as he blew his only save opportunity during that stretch. With three straight scoreless outings to his credit, the closer owns a 2.15 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 52:9 K:BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, surrendering two earned runs on three hits and one walk in six-plus innings while striking out nine in his team's 5-2 win over the Cardinals.

Cole spun six scoreless innings but gave up hits to the first two batters of the seventh before being pulled, and both runners would come around to score later in the inning. He owns a 3.65 ERA and 93:34 K:BB ratio in 98 2/3 innings. Cole is scheduled to face the Cardinals again Monday.
