Postgame: Josh Harrison does everything in win over Reds
Harrison has a night "You can watch a lot of baseball games and you'd be hard-pressed to find a better all-around game than Josh [Harrison] had tonight on both sides of the ball," Clint Hurdle said of his third baseman's dominating performance Friday. Harrison's night included playing a role in 40 percent of the fielding outs (8-of-20), gaining 50 percen...

The Matt Morris Report: Espinal on fire
-- Nick Kingham gave up six runs in the first two innings, but Indianapolis pounded out 18 hits on their way to a 9-7 win over Columbus.  Kingham recovered enough to last five and two-thirds innings.  He was charged with all seven runs, five of them ea...

Josh Harrison overshadows Edinson Volquez's brilliant performance in 2-1 Pirates win
It's not often that a player can pitch brilliantly, take a no-hitter into the seventh, and still be overshadowed by a position player in a 2-1 game, but somehow that happened Friday as the Bucs beat the Reds. Edinson Volquez and Mike Leake traded zeroes as the early innings zoomed by. Volquez piled up strikeouts, getting one after another on balls in th...

Pirates outright Tommy Field
The Pirates have outrighted infielder Tommy Field to Indianapolis. Field isn't even particularly likely to be a September call-up after the Bucs claimed him from the Angels earlier this summer, so he'll probably finish out the season with Indy. He's surely a bette...

Pirates promote Andrew Lambo
The Pirates have promoted Andrew Lambo and optioned Gerrit Cole to Bristol. Cole isn't going to pitch for Bristol, obviously; he'll be back in a couple days when rosters expand. Bristol's season ends today, so the Bucs will just be able to promote him again for his next start -- no harm, no foul. Pedro Alvarez and Travis Snider are both dealing with what ap...

Pregame: Charlie Morton update, Edinson Volquez's velocity rising
Notes and quotes from today's pregame: Morton update Charle Morton threw 73 pitches and four complete innings during his rehab start in Altoona. Clint Hurdle said that he liked the number of strikes Morton was able to throw, but it doesn't sound like the right-hander is feeling much relief from the hernia. "He felt like he was able to execute pitches," Hurdle s...

Early gamethread! Edinson Volquez starts against Mike Leake as the Bucs host the Reds at 7:05.

Mets promote Dilson Herrera
The Mets have promoted second base prospect Dilson Herrera, Danny Knobler tweets. The Mets acquired Herrera, of course, with Vic Black from the Pirates in exchange for Marlon Byrd. Herrera still probably isn't a star-caliber talent, and the Mets are being really aggressive with hi...

The Matt Morris Report: Edwin Espinal drives in seven
-- Indianapolis squeaked past Columbus, 2-1.  Casey Sadler gave up a run on two hits and a walk in six innings.  He struck out three.  Recent random waiver claimee Bobby LaFromboise threw a scoreless inning.  Ernesto Frieri did, too, despite allow...

Royals claim Jayson Nix
The Royals have claimed Jayson Nix, Andy McCullough tweets. Nix's Pirates career thus ends -- for now! -- with 39 plate appearances, four singles and one walk. The Bucs designated him for assignment earlier this week to clear 40-man space for Jose Tabata and 25-man space...
