Pirates' Andrew McCutchen: Collects pair of hits against Nats

McCutchen went 2-for-5 with a double against Washington on Thursday.

He's strung together back-to-back multi-hit games and after stealing six bases last season, McCutchen has swiped three bags in his last four games. Still, the outfielder expressed dissatisfaction in his overall play, blaming himself for manager Clint Hurdle's decision to remove him Wednesday as part of a double switch. McCutchen is batting just .176/.231/.269 in 108 at-bats against right-handed pitching, well below his career mark of .282/.371/.465. The 30-year-old will likely continue to struggle until he can find his game against righties.
