After two straight losses to the Philadelphia Phillies, the Pirates finally pulled away with a W. The Pirates won this one 11-7 last night in a true hitting battle. Both teams combined for 24 hits. Chase Utley made his return in this game, going 3 for 5 with a homerun in his first at-bat. Andrew McCutchen had another great game, going 2 for 5. McKenry played great as well, going 2 for 4. James McDonald only went 5.2 innings after giving up 6 hits, 4 runs, (including 2 homeruns) and 2 walks. The Pirates are now 39-35, trying to climb up their way in their division.
