J.A. Happ was outstanding for a fourth consecutive start, Aramis Ramirez hit a three-run homer and the Pirates beat the Rockies 4-3 on Saturday night at PNC Park.

When the Pirates lost Russell Martin in free agency this past offseason, the team seemed to lose an irreplaceable piece. Enter Francisco Cervelli.

PITTSBURGH - It is the end of August and the Pirates, at 79-49, are 30 games over .500 and are running full bore toward their third straight "Buctober."

While hardly spectacular Friday night, Francisco Liriano tossed a quality start against the Colorado Rockies, throwing six innings of three run ball in the Pirates’ 5-3 win. The real news, though, is that the Pirates extended their winning streak in his starts to 11.

PITTSBURGH - According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the 11 consecutive victories are the second-longest for a Pirates’ pitcher in the last 44 years, only topped by a 12-ga

Gerrit Cole pitched into the eighth-inning, Pedro Alvarez homered and the Pirates took three of four games over the Marlins with a 2-1 win in Miami.

Andrew McCutchen blasted a three-run homer and drove in four runs, Jeff Locke pitched seven strong innings and the Pirates beat the Marlins 7-2 in Miami.

It all began with McCutchen hitting his 32nd double of the season to drive in Josh Harrison, who drew a leadoff walk, in the top of the first inning to give the Pirates a quick 1-0 lead.

Charlie Morton allowed five runs in 5 1/3 innings as the Marlins rolled over the Pirates 5-2 in Miami on Tuesday night.

J.A. Happ threw six innings of shutout baseball and Gregory Polanco had four hits, leading the Pirates to a 5-2 win in Miami.

Polanco was one hit short of equalizing his career high of five, which ironically came against Marlins at Miami last year in just the fourth game of his major league career.

In the top of the sixth with one out Sunday, the Pirates turned to Arquimedes Caminero in a 3-2 game with two runners on, and the rookie reliever induced an inning-ending double-play to earn a tough hold.

“[It] was the biggest sequence of events of the night,” manager Clint Hurdle said. “Kept the game in check and tipped it our way in a momentum standpoint.”

Pedro Alvarez compensated for a pair of errors with a homer and two RBI, Francisco Liriano overcame poor defense behind him and the Pirates beat the Giants 5-2 at PNC Park Sunday night.

Time moves faster in the NFL. Players seem to age more rapidly and rosters turn over more quickly than in any other sport. Nowhere else is this more evident than the Steelers defense, where nine of 2011’s opening day starters are no longer with the team.
