PITTSBURGH -- The National League MVP doesnt play favourites when it comes to hot streaks. Justin Braun Jersey . Neither do the Pittsburgh Pirates, who rode Andrew McCutchen to another win Wednesday. McCutchen homered and reached base four times and the Pirates beat the Chicago Cubs 4-2 at rainy PNC Park on Wednesday night. McCutchen is batting .462 during a seven-game hitting streak and has 12 extra-base hits during 10 June games. "I dont compare (career-best stretches)," McCutchen said. "Im not big on that. Im just seeing the ball hitting the ball. Im in a spurt where Im feeling really good right now." So are the Pirates, who have taken two of the first three games of the series with their NL Central rivals. Pittsburghs Brandon Cumpton (2-2) pitched five effective innings, and the offence pounded Cubs starter Jason Hammel (6-4) for 11 hits in five innings, snapping his streaks of 14 1-3 innings without allowing a run and 52 innings without allowing a homer when McCutchen hit his 10th in the first. McCutchen also had a single and walked twice. "Hes hot," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "When he gets his pitch, hes not missing." Luis Valbuena likewise continued his recent strong hitting with three hits for last-place Chicago, which has lost three of four after a season-best five-game winning streak. The games first pitch was delayed 1 hour, 38 minutes because of a severe thunderstorm that began sweeping through downtown Pittsburgh about an hour before the scheduled start time. Rain fell again during the sixth inning. McCutchens fly ball landed more than a row into the left-field seats -- but it almost became an extra-long out when leftfielder Chris Coghlan leaped into the stands. He landed in the seats and said he had a read on the ball but that a fan outmanoeuvred him for it. "Best non-catch effort Ive ever seen," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. "I would have went there and shook his hand myself if he caught that ball," McCutchen said. The Pirates Gregory Polanco went 1 for 5 with an RBI groundout a day after his much-hyped major league debut Tuesday. Making his sixth start of the season and fourth since being given a regular rotation spot, Cumpton allowed two runs on five hits and two walks with five strikeouts. On his final pitch, he struck out Nate Schierholtz swinging with the bases loaded. "Its something I need to work on, getting through the fifth and sixth innings," Cumpton said. "It was a good experience, a real confidence booster for me." Justin Wilson, Tony Watson, Mark Melancon and Jason Grilli followed with a hitless inning each. Grilli earned his 10th save of the season during what was his 400th career appearance. Hammel had won two previous starts against the Pirates this season and entered Wednesday with the second-best WHIP in the majors (0.88). He allowed 14 baserunners Wednesday. "It was rough," Hammel said with a laugh. "A lot of hits given up. Up in the zone. Obviously could have been better strikes thrown, but I battled through. It could have been a lot worse - 11 hits through five innings? Its amazing they only put up four." Hammel was spared a worse line by some poor baserunning by Pittsburgh, which hit into two peculiar double plays and had another runner thrown out at third during the seventh inning after Hammel was out of the game. The Pirates Starling Marte had two hits - including an RBI single in the fifth inning - but also was thrown out on the basepaths for the third time in two games when he was picked off third following a Travis Snider pop-up behind home plate in the fifth. The Cubs briefly tied the game at 2 in the second when John Bakers single drove in Valbuena and Nate Schierholtz scored on a groundout. Notes: Before the game, the Pirates places LHP Francisco Liriano on the disabled list because of a strained left oblique that caused him to leave his start Tuesday in the fourth inning. .

DETROIT -- The San Francisco Giants jumped on David Price right at the start, making themselves right at home in another successful game at Comerica Park. Andrew Susac hit a two-run double in San Franciscos four-run first, and the Giants beat the Detroit Tigers 5-4 on Saturday. Two years after clinching the 2012 World Series in Detroit, the Giants have taken the first two games of a weekend series at the Tigers home. They have won eight of nine against Detroit overall. Buster Posey had a solo homer among his three hits for San Francisco, which has won three of four and nine of 11 overall. Madison Bumgarner pitched six innings for his fourth consecutive win, giving him a career-high 17 on the year. "We were fortunate to get those early runs off Price," Posey said. "You dont usually get runs like that off a guy like him." Miguel Cabrera homered twice for Detroit, which has dropped three of four. Victor Martinez hit a solo drive in the third for his career-best 30th homer. Price (13-11) settled down after the rough start, striking out 11 in 8 2-3 innings. But the left-hander, who was acquired from Tampa Bay in a July 31 trade, dropped to 1-3 with a 4.91 ERA in his last four starts. The Giants strung together five consecutive hits after Price retired the first two batters. Pablo Sandoval singled in Posey and scored on Susacs double to centre. Joaquin Arias then doubled home Susac to make it 4-0. San Francisco was extremely aggressive in the inning, sending eight batters to the plate despite Price only throwing 24 pitches. "I only feel like I made one big mistake all day, and that was the double by their catcher -- Susac, I think," Price said. "Even Posey hit a good pitch. But I had the two outs in the first, and I need to be able to execute a pitch right there and get off the field. I didnt do that, and I havent done it since I got here." Posey connected with one out in the fifth, hitting a drive to left for his 20th homer and a 5-3 lead. "Against Price, you are just trying to get something you can hit," Posey said. "You keep a good, simple approach and try to get the barrel of the bat on the ball." Because of a long rain delay on Friday night, there were jusst 12 1/2 hours between the last pitch of the series opener and Prices first pitch on Saturday. Dylan DeMelo Jersey. . With the Giants leading 8-2 after eight innings Friday and the clock well past midnight, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus pulled his starters and sent them home to get an extra hour of sleep. Detroit tried to rally after San Franciscos fast start. Cabrera hit a two-run drive in the first, and Martinezs homer got the Tigers within one. Cabrera added a solo shot in the eighth, making it 5-4, but that was it for the Tigers. Bumgarner (17-9), who won Game 2 two years ago, allowed three runs and 10 hits. Santiago Casilla pitched the ninth for his 15th save. Cabreras eighth-inning homer came against Sergio Romo, who struck the slugger out to end the 2012 World Series. "I just looked at that pitch on tape, and it was really good," Susac said. "That guy is just freakishly strong." Cabrera has two multihomer games this season, both coming this week. "I dont know if hes feeling better or if he has just adjusted to his ankle problems," Ausmus said. "Its probably a little of both, but it is great to see." TRAINERS ROOM Detroit: C Alex Avila did not show any concussion symptoms on Friday, but rookie James McCann made his first major league start with the Tigers facing a lefty on Saturday. Avila struck out as a pinch hitter in the ninth in his first appearance since leaving an Aug. 2 game in Cleveland after taking a foul tip off the mask.
