Andrew McCutchen's return to Pittsburgh was awesome

Andrew McCutchen's return to Pittsburgh was awesome

Pittsburgh starter Trevor Williams gave up four runs over five frames for a ND with Richard Rodriguez allowing an 8th inning run yet still picking up the win.

"You're hoping it's not one of those games where you have buzzard's luck, but we did have some hard outs", Bochy said.

Pirates fans and players greeted Andrew McCutchen with a lengthy standing ovation when the former Pittsburgh star made his first return to PNC Park as a member of the Giants. Hernandez led off with his second homer, to left, for a 1-0 Giants lead. The Pirates continue to play solid baseball, winning three straight and four out of their last five games, and they are locked in at the plate, scoring at least six runs in four out of those five games.

The Pirates are now tied for second place in the NL Central, only a 1/2 game behind the Cardinals.

"I think they're trying to get their swings in good spots to maximize contact", Hurdle said.

"I was going too far the other way and I had already gotten the ball out of my glove", Longoria said.

The Giants once again fell behind early after starter Andrew Suarez gave up a two-run home run to Starling Marte to put the Giants in another early hole in the first. His team-leading eighth home run of the year halved the deficit, and former Pirate Alen Hanson evened the game at 2-2 with a one-out solo shot into the right field bleachers. They started off with a four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies and are now two games into a series with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

"People have asked, 'How you going to feel?" "I will have to wait until tomorrow morning and see when I wake up".

Like Bonds, McCutchen ultimately moved on to the San Francisco Giants.

However, a one-out home run from Gregory Polanco knotted the score at 3-3 in the bottom of the frame, preventing Samardzija from notching a shutdown inning.

The Pittsburgh hitters have produced 5.0 runs per contest, including 4.9 per game over its last 10 games and 6.8 per game over their last five.

The Pirates assured themselves of their ninth series win of the season. "Part of me needs to be positive in this game but we'll keep that to myself and it is what it is". Steven Brault replaced Taillon in the fourth and struggled out of the gate, loading the bases with two out before Austin Jackson cashed in with a game-tying two-run single.

Polanco's was his second over his past three games and his eighth of the season.
