McCutchen, Giants hope to solve Pirates

McCutchen, Giants hope to solve Pirates

The Pirates hit a pair of home runs on Saturday in their 6-5 victory against the San Francisco Giants.

Watson spent seven years with the Pirates and was a reliable relief pitcher. Falling behind early has crushed the Giants on their road trip, as the club has given up at least one first inning run in seven of their nine games.

Marte's 402-foot double almost ruined Holland's best start of the year, but the left-hander bounced back by striking out Josh Bell to end the fifth. Suarez comes off his first career win by a 4-3 count at Atlanta with an unearned run allowed over 5.1 frames.

Pirates starter Chad Kuhl gave up three runs and six hits in six innings, with six strikeouts and four walks. This will be the first time the Pirates see Suarez.

Buster Posey is dialed in at the plate, recording 11 hits along with five RBI's in his last six games.

On the first pitch of Rodriguez's outing, catcher Nick Hundley slugged a three-run home run into the left field corner to break open the game and push the Giants ahead 5-0. Posey has four hits in five at-bats against the right-handed starter.

San Francisco has lost a season-worst six straight.

Jameson Taillon will take the mound for the eighth time of the campaign, targeting his first win since April 8th. The 6-foot-5 right-hander has recorded three Quality Starts on the season, and he enters this one with a 4.42 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP accompanied with a 2-3 record in 36.2 innings of work. Nova has given up 10 runs in his last 5 2/3 innings.

Taillon will have a challenge against Buster Posey, to whom he has surrendered two doubles.

"Us as a staff, us five guys have to find a way to improve and really get that momentum going and give that rhythm to the game to where the offense is feeling like they're in the dugout a lot", Samardzija said. The 28-year old left fielder has been one of the most consistent hitters in the Pirates lineup this season, now featuring a.323 average with five home runs and 26 RBI's.

Through their 38th game on Friday, the Pirates ranked fourth in the NL with 46 home runs. The Pittsburgh pitching has been average, posting a 4.20 team ERA, placing them 16th overall. He doesn't have a win in his past 12 road starts, with his last win coming last May 21 against Seattle.

The team that finished 29th in the majors in home runs and 28th in runs last season is now in the top 10 in both categories a quarter of the way into 2018.
