NATIONALS 1 PIRATES 3 F..."RAISE the JOLLY Roger" as #BUCN finishes the NATS on "GET AWAY DAY" as they take Game #4 and three of four in the Four-Piece! #WSHvsPIT #NATitude #BUCSnation #RaiseTheJollyRoger

The Pittsburgh Pirates quickly bounced back from that 9-3 Saturday Debacle that saw the Nats Offense for once this week come alive in a series. Bucs Ace RHP Garrit Cole (14-4) gets right back into the win column as he goes 7 2/3 frames allowing a run on seven hits as he struck out eight. The only "Boo Boo" Cole gave up was in the 3rd to Nats CF Michael Taylor on a solo bomb which was also the first run of the game.

The Pirates came right back in their half of the 3rd putting up a crooked two on starter Joe Ross (2-3) highlighted by RBI singles from Gregory Polanco and Andrew McCutchen. The Buccos would add one more run in the 4th as Neil Walker would take Ross for a solo ride his 9th of 2015 for a Buccos 3-1  lead and the final score.

Buccos Captain Save-A-Game Mark Melancon would get his 32nd Save of 2015 as the 'Burgh Hardball moves to 57-41. The Nats holding onto the NL East lead falls to 52-45 after a terrible series near the Three Rivers.
