As a sinker/slider guy, Pirates starter Chad Kuhl has a large platoon split so far in his brief major league career. Working carefully, he walked lefties Anthony Rizzo and Ben Zobrist with two outs and paid the price as Addison Russell knocked in Rizzo with a base hit and then lefty-swinging Jason Heyward popped a three-run homer.

Dodgers RHP Sergio Romo is back in San Francisco and drawing a big crowd already. "I wouldn't be surprised if I got a quick reminder of where I am now," he said about Giants fans.

Cool story as the Pirates called up reliever Dovydas Neverauskas, who will be the first Lithuanian-born player in the majors when he gets into a game. Signed as a 17-year-old in 2010, his dad was a baseball coach in a country where few people play the sport. He throws hard and had 56 K's in 58 IP in the minors last year, with just one home run allowed.
