McCutchen, Bell lift Pirates past Rockies

McCutchen, Bell lift Pirates past Rockies”

Which in the context of this incredible surge for the Pirates as a collective - six wins in a row, nine in their past 10, 12 of their past 14, a game over.500 for the first time since April 9 at 49-48 and, yes, somehow, within two games of the just-swept Brewers for the Central lead - is probably instructive.

Friday's win, combined with a loss by first-place Milwaukee, moved Pittsburgh within two games of the division leaders.

Pittsburgh jumped on Colorado starter Jeff Hoffman (6-2) and chased him three batters into the fourth inning. He added a bases-clearing double in the second inning after Hoffman walked opposing starter Trevor Williams, hit Starling Marte and then also walked Andrew McCutchen.

The five-game skid ties a season high for Milwaukee.

NEW YORK - Jose Reyes hit the game-winning infield single with two outs in the bottom in the ninth inning to give New York the win over St. Louis.

Domingo Santana gave the Brewers the lead in the 8th inning with a solo home run.

BOSTON - Justin Smoak had two home runs and three RBIs to lead Toronto past Boston. He allowed three consecutive hits to open the third, including an RBI single to McCutchen. The Pirates announced Polanco was day-to-day. First pitch will be thrown out at 6:05 Friday night. "We'll chart the next course of action but as far as physically, he's in a really positive spot, and we feel really good about that". German Marquez (7-4, 4.34) will start for Colorado on Saturday.
