    • Musgrove (3-4) allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits with four strikeouts and a walk across 6.1 innings to earn a victory against the Padres on Sunday. The right-hander threw six scoreless frames, which extended his scoreless streak to 13 innings. But then in the seventh, Musgrove allowed three hits, including a home run, and committed an error. While that ruined most of his great work, he did still earn the win. Musgrove is 3-4 with a 3.67 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 44 strikeouts in 54 innings this season. He will pitch again versus the Dodgers on Saturday.

    • Musgrove (2-4) tossed seven shutout innings, allowing just one hit with three walks and five strikeouts to earn a victory against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. The 26-year-old made it through seven innings on just 75 pitches, but in a somewhat surprising move with a three-run lead and an afternoon game Wednesday, manager Clint Hurdle turned to his bullpen for the eighth. Owners still have to love this start after Musgrove yielded 13 earned runs in his previous 5.2 innings. He is now 2-4 with a 3.59 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 40 strikeouts in 47.2 innings this season. He is scheduled to start again at the Padres on Sunday.

    • General manager Neal Huntington didn't indicate Musgrove was suffering a health issue when asked during his Sunday radio show on 93.7 The Fan. "We haven't made some plays behind him ... he feels like he's ready to get back on track and be Joe Musgrove again his next time out," Huntington said. Musgrove underwent offseason hernia surgery but got off to a tremendous April start with Pittsburgh. He's surrendered 13 earned runs in 5.2 innings over his last two starts and walked a career-high five batters May 9.

    • Pirates' Joe Musgrove: Implodes in loss
      By RotoWire Staff

      Musgrove (1-4) lasted only three innings and took the loss against the Cardinals on Thursday, giving up eight runs on six hits and five walks while striking out three. The big righty had nothing working in this one, as his pitches got knocked around the park when he managed to get them across the plate. The five walks were easily a season high -- he had not given up more than two in any of his previous appearances. After beginning the season with five consecutive quality starts, Musgrove has now been shelled in his last two outings to the tune of 13 earned runs in 5.2 innings. He'll try to turn things around in his next scheduled start Tuesday in Arizona.

    • Musgrove (1-2) allowed three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five over 6.2 innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday. After outdueling Clayton Kershaw through six innings, Musgrove wasn't quite as sharp in the seventh, and the defense behind him let him down. In fact, it seems likely Major League Baseball will change Austin Barnes' single in the seventh inning to an error on shortstop Cole Tucker upon review. Either way, it was another encouraging outing from Musgrove, who is missing more bats early on despite a dip in velocity. The right-hander lines up for a home start against Oakland next weekend.
