Sonny Gray takes loss in possible last start for Oakland

Gray went six innings and allowed four runs - all of them unearned, thanks to his miscue- in Oakland’s 4-1 loss to the Blue Jays, unable to get his manager, Bob Melvin, to the 1,000-win mark after two days stuck at 999.

Fewer moving parts, more effectiveness for Daniel Hudson

SAN FRANCISCO — Daniel Hudson felt as if he still had his stuff. Command and consistency eluded him. After walking two batters in an inning June 2 against the New York Mets, and with a 5.79 ERA, he and pitching coach Ray Searage turned to the video.

SAN FRANCISCO — One hundred games into the 2017 season, the Pirates worked their way back to even par. This season, in this division, even par means contention.

Rotating cast of Pirates outfielders shifts from one corner to the other

SAN FRANCISCO — The Pirates spent three months piecing together left field because of Starling Marte’s suspension. Now, just as Gregory Polanco began to hit, his absence will force the Pirates to do the same thing in right.

As Pirates face the San Francisco Giants, the names are the same, but not the producion

SAN FRANCISCO — Every name Pirates manager Clint Hurdle listed from the San Francisco Giants roster had an impressive resume. He ticked off an MVP and rookie of the year. Each player he mentioned but one had an All-Star Game appearance to his name. Between them, they had 10 World Series rings.

Ron Cook: Enjoy it — these are good times for Pittsburgh sports

The Pirates have a chance to win their first division title since 1992 despite getting spanked twice in Colorado during the weekend and falling back below .500 at 49-50. That’s all they can ask for, right? An opportunity. Isn’t that what the late, great Herb Brooks always said?

Pirates reportedly ‘leaning against’ Andrew McCutchen trade

The Pittsburgh Pirates’ recent upswing has complicated their trade deadline plans. Outfielder Andrew McCutchen, who had previously looked like an obvious trade candidate, is now reportedly more likely than not to remain with Pittsburgh, at least for the remainder of the season, according to a report. #Pirates leaning against trading McCutchen, but source tells me...Read More

What is Andrew McCutchen's value? We may find out this week

At the times over the past two seasons when general manager Neal Huntington attempted to explain the dips and dives in Andrew McCutchen’s production and describe the five-time All-Star center fielder’s importance to the Pirates’ overall performance, Huntington often landed on this line: “It’s not a coincidence,” he’d say, “that we were good when Andrew was good.”

Ivan Nova, Pirates rocked in series finale in Colorado

Trevor Story, pinch-hitter Pat Valaika and Mark Reynolds hit two-run homers during a seven-run sixth, and the Colorado Rockies belted five home runs to beat the Pirates 13-3 Sunday.

Ivan Nova hit hard, Pirates offense silent in 13-3 loss to Rockies

DENVER — To take advantage of the Coors Field jet-stream requires putting the baseball in the air. The Colorado Rockies had the right idea Sunday, when they banged five home runs in a 13-3 win, while the Pirates hit just eight balls out of the infield and lost back-to-back games for the first time since July 1-2.

Neal Huntington: Pirates will consider outfielder options on trade market

DENVER — Perhaps the Pirates’ most glaring need, should they decide to dive headlong into the postseason race this season, is a fourth outfielder. They were without Starling Marte for 80 games — he is also ineligible for the playoffs — and Gregory Polanco is on the disabled list for the second time this season.
