by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Pirates ace Gerrit Cole was brilliant in his start against the Marlins on Thursday. The right-hander allowed one run on five hits over 7 1/3 solid innings. He struck out four and did not walk a batter. Cole's strong start earned him a victory, as the Pirates held on for the 2-1 win.

The only run Cole allowed came on a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning. Cole improved to 15-7 and lowered his ERA to 2.44 with the dominant effort.

Pirates bench Josh Harrison, Jung-Ho Kang on Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The logjam on the left side of the Pirates infield has both Josh Harrison and Jung Ho Kang out of the lineup Thursday at Miami. Aramis Ramirez will play third with Jordy Mercer at short.

Harrison has slumped since his return from injury with two hits in 13 at-bats. Kang, however, has hit safely in six of his last seven starts in maintaining a fine slash line of .289/.364/.457.

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Andrew McCutchen had a big night at the plate for the Pirates, driving in four runs to help his team cruise to a victory over the Marlins. 

McCutchen got the Pirates on the board with a first-inning double and followed that with a three-run homer in the second as Pittsburgh opened a 7-1 lead. McCutchen now has five home runs and 19 RBIs in August. 

With his 20th home run, McCutchen has now reached that benchmark in five straight seasons.
