Pirates beat Phillies again

Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Edinson Volquez tossed seven solid innings and Andrew McCutchen added a two-run homer, leading Pittsburgh to a 3-2 decision over Philadelphia in the middle test of a three-game series.

Volquez (7-6) walked four but fanned five and allowed one run on four hits in his successful 106-pitch outing, which he aided by knocking in a run for the Pirates, winners of two in a row and five of their last six.

Mark Melancon gave up a home run to Marlon Byrd in the ninth but closed out the game to register his 16th save.

Cody Asche also went deep for the Phillies, while David Buchanan (4-5) surrendered six hits and three runs over six full frames in defeat.
