So what’s up with the Pirates?

“When we play our best baseball we can compete with any team out there,” said Andrew McCutchen, who had three hits and reached base five times. “Right now we’re doing it. Our starting pitchers have been phenomenal, and that’s the main reason we’re doing what we’re doing.”

Rookie Josh Bell had a career-high four hits and Jordy Mercer homered for the Pirates.

“We’re playing really well right now and this road trip is big for us,” Pittsburgh starting pitcher Trevor Williams said. “If we finish good with this road trip, things are looking up for us.”

The Pirates have caught many a bookie off guard as this explosive play has only moved them a single game over the .500 mark.
