James McDonald allowed only one run on four hits while striking out 10 batters en route to a 3-1 victory for the Pirates over the San Francisco Giants. Neil Walker and Mike McKenry provided the offense for the Bucs, both with multiple hits on the afternoon.

James McDonald did not look at today’s game as a statement to not being selected to the 2012 N.L All-Star roster. But his performance in today’s game sure got a message across.

July means trade rumors. Losing teams look for the most return from their good players. Winning teams scour the market as their fans dream about the addition of an All-Star.

But the Pittsburgh Pirates, baseball's surprise contender as leader of the NL Central, should think about addition by subtraction. I'm talking about a four-man rotation.

Who was the only Pirates relief pitcher that did NOT appear in last July's 19-inning Jerry Meals debacle? Joe Beimel pitched. So did Chris Resop and Jose Veras. The correct answer... Joel Hanrahan.

Daniel McCutchen was allowed to labor through 92 pitches while the Pirates' best reliever sat alone in the bullpen and

For the third straight day, the Pittsburgh Pirates found themselves behind the Houston Astros. For the third straight day, the Pirates came back to win. For the first time all year, the Pirates lead the National League Central all by themselves after a 6-4 victory.
