Pirates' Joe Musgrove: Allows five runs in loss
Musgrove (5-8) pitched six innings and took the loss Thursday, allowing five runs on seven hits and a walk in the 5-0 loss to the Cardinals. He struck out seven and yielded two home runs.
Things were going smooth for Musgrove until the third inning when he allowed back-to-back homers to Harrison Bader and John Gant, the Cardinals' eighth and ninth batters in the lineup. Even with the poor outing, the 25-year-old is sporting a respectable 3.80 ERA and 80:21 K:BB in 2018. Musgrove will take the mound again Tuesday against the Reds.
