7/23/2016 | Pirates shake off shaky Glasnow, erupt vs. Phillies

With two hit batsmen, three walks and five stolen bases allowed in three-plus innings, it's safe to say Pirates rookie Tyler Glasnow struggled in his home debut. The Bucs' offense compensated, erupting for a five-run fifth inning and holding on to beat the Phillies, 7-4, on Saturday.

7/23/2016 | With Fryer on paternity list, Diaz gets 2nd callup

You never forget your first time. For Elias Diaz, the second time was even better. Diaz was recalled by the Pirates in time to serve as the backup catcher for Saturday's game against the Phillies. Diaz was needed because Eric Fryer was placed on the paternity list.


7/23/2016 | Vogelbach, Berrios among top prospect performers Friday

7/21/2016 | Hurdle happy to see vintage Liriano on display

The results had been creeping in the right direction for Francisco Liriano this month, small but visible signs of progress. He limited the damage to three runs or less in back-to-back starts, then he completed six innings his last time out. But still, it wasn't quite vintage Liriano. Thursday night at PNC Park? That was more like it.

7/19/2016 | Deja Crew: J-Hay tags Thornburg with winner
