The breeze from the Nationals’ 11 strikeouts cooled the sellout crowd at PNC Park as Francisco Liriano’s arm, along with the Buccos' bats, led the Pittsburgh Pirates past Washington by a score of 7-3.

Liriano was untouchable through the first four innings with every batter either striking out or weakly grounding balls back to the pitcher’s mound.

Gerrit Cole pitched into the eighth inning but two errors, a mental mistake and a home run that wasn't lifted the Royals over the Pirates 3-1 in Kansas City.

The Pirates appeared to have taken a 1-0 lead in the second, but the run was taken away when Starling Marte's apparent home run was reviewed and ruled a double.
