Pirates lean on Volquez to maintain standing

A common trait with many teams that make the postseason is a better-than-expected performance from certain key players. Right-hander Edinson Volquez has certainly put himself in that category for the Pirates, who occupy the National League's second Wild Card spot and are trailing the Cardinals by 3 1/2 games in the NL Central with 14 games remaining in the regular season.

Hurdle not surprised by Holdzkom's success

As far as most people are concerned, John Holdzkom has taken baseball by storm as one of the game's best "overnight success" stories ever.

Morton throwing, but still in holding pattern

The mysterious tour without a known destination of Charlie Morton wound through Philadelphia -- where A.J. Burnett has pitched all season with a sports hernia similar to what sent the Pirates' righty to the disabled list a month ago -- and pulled into the PNC Park bullpen on Friday afternoon. Morton threw a light side session, keeping his arm in tune on the chance that an emergency necessitates its use.
