The Pittsburgh Pirates have the best record in the majors since mid-May. Andrew McCutchen hit a home run and turned an RBI single into race around the bases while Minnesota made two errors in a five-run sixth inning, helping Francisco Liriano and the Pirates beat the Twins 10-4 Wednesday for a two-game sweep. After losing five of their first six games out of the All-Star break, the Pirates have won five of their last six games to tighten their grip on the NL’s first wild-card spot.

The Arizona Diamondbacks got some key at-bats from players with Seattle ties in capturing the opener of a three-game road series with the Mariners. Zack Godley makes his first road start after an impressive debut for the Diamondbacks, who seek a fourth straight win Tuesday night. There’s not much on the line in this series of clubs looking to the future, though Jake Lamb and Welington Castillo both had their own incentive in returns to Seattle in Monday’s 4-3, 10-inning victory.

A computer will call balls and strikes as the home plate umpire handles all of his other regular duties. ”It’s going to be strange yelling at that computer,” San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy joked.

Franklin Gutierrez delivered the biggest hit yet of his comeback with the Seattle Mariners. Gutierrez, who missed all of last season with an arthritic condition in his back, homered with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning Sunday to give Seattle a 6-5 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays, a game the Mariners kept close with the aid of a triple play. It was the second huge home run in a week for Gutierrez, who hit a pinch-hit grand slam in the eighth inning Tuesday at Detroit to help the Mariners rally for an 11-9 victory.

Together, pitchers Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz and multi-talented Craig Biggio left a remarkable imprint on baseball. Playing through an era tainted by steroids and dominated by offense – compliments of bulked-up sluggers, a smaller strike zone and smaller ballparks – the trio of pitchers combined for 735 wins, 11,113 strikeouts and nine Cy Young Awards. All four, elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in January, will be inducted Sunday in Cooperstown.

It’s a scenario the Seattle Mariners got a glimpse of on Friday night and one they expected to see far more than they have this season. ”We’re a better club from an offensive standpoint than we showed in the first half and I think it’s starting to come to fruition and guys are starting to swing the way they’re capable of swinging,” Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said. Hernandez pitched seven strong innings to pick up his 12th win of the season, Trumbo gave Seattle the lead with a two-run homer and the Mariners beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2.
