The Pirates snapped their three-game losing streak with a 10-2 win over Colorado last night. Jameson Taillon allowed 10 hits and struck out three in his second complete game of the season. Starling Marte, Josh Harrison, and Jordy Mercer all homered for the Pirates.
The Pirates added newly-acquired shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria to the roster yesterday and placed utilityman Sean Rodriguez on the disabled list with a left abdominal strain. The Bucs also claimed pitcher Buddy Boshers off waivers from the Astros and assigned him to Indianapolis.
Speaking of the Pirates top farm team, it was quite a night for the Indianapolis Indians, with shortstop Kevin Newman going 5-for-5 and hitting for the cycle, and catcher Jacob Stallings also hitting for the cycle. He was 4-for-5. The Indians beat Lehigh Valley 12-5
