Webcast: Pirates.com

Pirates starter: RHP A.J. Burnett

Tuesday's result

blue jays 6, pirates 3

Braves starter: LHP Ricky Romero 4.1 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 2 SO

Pirates starter: LHP Jonathan Sanchez 4.2 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, 6 SO, 1 HBP

Run it down: Felix Pie covered almost all of CF on the run as he fought the sun and a stiff wind to snag Adam Lind's blooper.

He'll take it: Sanchez doubled leading off the fourth and went to third when Starling Marte reached on a two-out error. Marte was picked off first, but stayed in a rundown long enough for Sanchez to score.

Stock up: Michael McKenry extended his hitting streak to five games with an RBI single in the third inning.

Stock down: Clutch hitting. The Pirates went 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position.
