Pedro Alvarez had a two-run single in a three-run first inning, Charlie Morton shut down the Reds over 5-plus and the bullpen did the rest as the Bucs blanked Cincinnati 4-0 on Tuesday night.

Morton fared much better in his second start coming off of Tommy John surgery than his first as the Pirates handed Mat Latos his first regular season loss in the process.  Latos hadn’t lost a

The Reds blasted four solo homers to win the opener of a four-game series with the Pirates 4-1 on Monday night at Great American Ballpark

Given a chance to move into second place in the National League Central Division, the Pirates responded with a dismal offensive performance that saw them strand five runners in scoring position—inc

Ron Roenicke was named Milwaukee Brewers manager in 2011 and became just the fourth manager to lead the team to the postseason. PSR Pirates beat writer Nate Barnes caught up with Roenicke when the Brewers visited PNC Park last month.

In his second start as a major league baseball player, Gerrit Cole pitched into the sixth inning but was unable to get out on a day that he simply missed his best stuff.

On a Father’s Day matinee delayed one hour and 28 minutes due to rain, Cole still managed to pitch the Pirates (41-28) to a 6-3 victory over the Dodgers (29-39) and pick up his second win over five

In the rubber match of a three-game set between the Pittsburgh Pirates (40-28) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (29-38), Gerrit Cole (1-0, 2.84 ERA) makes his second start in the big leagues opposite 2008 Cy Young winner Zack Greinke (3-1, 3.68 ERA).

--Greinke is the fourth Cy Young winner the Pirates face in a span of six days.

Despite a strong outing in his first Major League start by Brandon Cumpton, the Pirates ultimately dropped a 5-3 decision in extra innings vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday afternoon at PNC Park.

In the last two series, the Pittsburgh Pirates have had two young pitchers make their Major League debuts. And both of them have been fairly impressive.

Brandon Cumpton makes his major-league debut this afternoon for the Pittsburgh Pirates (40-27) against the Los Angeles Dodgers (28-38) tonight against 2011 Cy Young-winner Clayton Kershaw (5-4, 1.88 ERA).

--Cumpton’s debut comes just over three years removed after the Pirates selected him out of the Georgia Institute of Technology in the ninth round of the 2013 Amateur Entry Draft.

Imagine in April if someone told Pirates fans that on June 14 the Bucs would own a record of 40-27 while Jeff Locke would be the only starting pitcher to not miss a turn in the rotation. And Locke’s 2.19 earned run average would rank second in the league among all left-handed starters behind only 2011 Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw.

Flash forward to a 70-degree night at PNC Park, and see Locke dealing seven shutout innings for which he needed just 75 pitches to plow through Los Angeles’ vaunted lineup in front of a sellout cro

The Pittsburgh Pirates begin the second half of their six-game homestand tonight at PNC Park, with a 7:05 contest against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers. Jeff Locke (5-1, 2.39 ERA) toes the rubber for the Bucs against L.A.’s Stephen Fife (1-1, 3.78 ERA).

--Los Angeles is missing its skipper and hitting coach tonight as a result of the suspension levied by Major League Baseball after benches cleared and blows were thrown in a game b

The Pittsburgh Pirates struggled to get any offense going and were pummeled by the San Francisco Giants, 10-0, on Thursday night at PNC Park. Charlie Morton threw five innings in his first start back in the Majors since having Tommy John surgery last season, allowing seven hits, four runs and striking out five.

It's tough to sweep the defending World Champions even after taking the first two games of the series with a lot of offensive firepower.
