Jeff Locke was perfect through the first five innings and allowed just one run over seven strong, Andrew McCutchen homered twice and the Pirates beat the Dodgers 6-1 on Saturday night at PNC Park.

In baseball, there are some nights where the pitching has to compensate for a lack of hitting. There are others where the batters have to bail out their starting pitcher.

As Clint Hurdle, his wife, and three children posed for a photograph during this weekend’s Family Week at PNC Park, the Pittsburgh Pirates manager was greeted by two surprise guests: His parents.

Under the cover of darkness, Hurdle’s wife, Karla, secretly flew in Clint Sr. and Louise from Florida just in case the Pirates manager notched his 1,000th career win over the weekend.

Jameson Taillon was shaky in his fourth major league start Friday night, but the Pirates came out on top in a 8-6 slugfest against the Dodgers to earn Clint Hurdle his 1,000th victory as a big league manager.

Hurdle’s dad was able to make the game after his wife organized an impromptu family gathering.

“It was a very interesting way to get there tonight,” Hurdle said on the win.

Eric Kratz homered, Jeff Locke pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning and three ‪Pirates‬' relievers kept the Giants off the scoreboard as the Bucs beat San Fran 1-0.

On paper, Monday night’s game at PNC Park looked like a mismatch.

Before the Pirates and Giants took the field today, by Ryan Vogelsong’s locker at the corner of the Pirates’ locker room, there was a dry erase board with a four word message on it: “Players only at 4:30,” with 4:30 underlined twice.

The reason why there is a meeting should not be too hard to figure out. June, which had been the Pirates’ best month since Clint Hurdle took over, has been a death march.
