Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

Andrew McCutchen

What a night it was at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park.

The host Pirates were down 2-0 to the visiting Cardinals after the top of the third inning and 3-0 after the top of the fifth, but Bucs starter A.J. Burnett hit a solo shot in the bottom of the fifth and then Jung Ho Kang and Pedro Alvarez tied the game with back-to-back RBI singles in the bottom of the eighth.

The score would remain 3-3 until the 10th, when Cardinals first baseman Mark Reynolds slugged a go-ahead solo homer — his second homer of the game. But then Pirates catcher Chris Stewart answered with an RBI single in the bottom half.

Jhonny Peralta put St. Louis back on top once again in the top of the 14th on an RBI single that scored Matt Carpenter, but that just set up Andrew McCutchen to play the hero with this walkoff blast …

Pittsburgh has won two in a row and now stands just 3 1/2 games back of first place.

Mike Moustakas and Carlos Martinez win the Final Vote for the 2015 All-Star Game

Mike Moustakas

When we last checked in this morning, Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas and Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez were in the lead for the Final Vote for the 2015 All-Star Game. Both have held on and won the spots for their respective leagues, Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY reports.

Boy, do people in the midwest show up to vote.

Moustakas, 26, is on the All-Star team for the first time in his five-year career. He enters play Friday batting .301/.357/.436 with seven home runs and 31 RBI in 321 plate appearances. He joins teammates Wade Davis, Kelvin Herrera, Salvador Perez, Alcides Escobar, Lorenzo Cain, and the injured Alex Gordon on the American League All-Star roster.

Martinez, 23, is also a first-time All-Star. He’s 10-3 with a 2.52 ERA and a 113/43 K/BB ratio in 107 1/3 innings over 17 starts and one relief appearance. He joins teammates Trevor Rosenthal, Michael Wacha, Yadier Molina, Jhonny Peralta, and Matt Holliday on the National League All-Star roster.
