The latest Ray Searage pitching project for the Pirates is Ivan Nova and he just tossed a six-hit, 98-pitch complete game to beat the Astros. The Pirates need to roll off a 10 wins in 12 games kind of stretch here and getting better results from the rotation is the key.

Like most Cardinal starting pitchers, Jaime Garcia has yet to get into a good rhythm this season. He looked like he had turned a corner with two dominant starts to begin the month, but had his second clunker in a row Tuesday night against the Mets, lasting just four innings and allowing six runs on seven hits, including two home runs. Garcia's 4.37 ERA is the worst of his eight-year career.

Terry Collins expressed concern pregame about the status of Jon Niese's left knee. Well, Niese lasted only four batters -- allowing three to reach -- before departing with an escort from trainer Ray Ramirez on Tuesday at Busch Stadium. It matched the shortest start of Niese's career. He also lasted only one out at Texas on July 4, 2014, when he was struck in the lower back by a line drive. Robert Gsellman replaced Niese on Tuesday. It is Gsellman's MLB debut. The Mets chose not to use Monday's off day to skip Niese's start because of Steven Matz's shoulder issue and a determination Jacob deGrom could use extra rest.
