Pirates 4, Giants 3

PITTSBURGH — Gerrit Cole won for the first time in nearly a month, helping the Pirates to their second straight victory over the Giants. Cole beat Tim Lincecum for the second time in his 11-month career. His fastball, clocked at 95-96 mph to begin the game, was 97-98 over his final two innings. "Really solid, solid effort for him," Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said. "Pushing through the eighth inning, the middle of the order, was very impressive." The Pirates have won four of six after a 1-7 slide.
