The Pirates’ bullpen continued to struggle Tuesday, blowing another late lead in an 8-6 loss to the Chicago Cubs.

PITTSBURGH (AP) —Anthony Rizzo's seventh home run of the season gave the sleep-deprived Chicago Cubs an early lead on Monday afternoon. His two-run single in the ninth put the finishing touches on a 7-0 romp over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

It's what happened in between that could have a carry-over effect for the NL Central rivals.

Jameson Taillon got a much needed quality start Sunday, but the Pirates’ bullpen cost him the win, and ultimately, the game, losing 6-4 to drop the series to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Leading 4-3 in the eighth, reliever Michael Feliz got himself into trouble immediately with a bloop single and two walks to open the inning.

Starling Marte homered in his first at-bat back from the disabled list, but the Pirates could not generate any offense besides that, losing 4-1 to the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday afternoon.

Marte’s first inning moonshot over the center field bullpens should put any doubts that the right oblique that landed him on the 10 day DL is feeling better.

Joe Musgrove was nothing short of spectacular in his Pirates debut, throwing even shutout innings and scoring the game-winning run in an 8-1 win over the Cardinals.

Musgrove appeared to be in the Pirates’ rotation out of spring training, but a shoulder injury shortly before his first scheduled start forced him onto the disabled list.

CINCINNATI – Matt Harvey pitched six innings of one-run ball for his first victory with Cincinnati, and Scooter Gennett hit his fifth grand slam over the last two seasons, leading the Reds to a 7-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night.

Harvey (1-2) gave up three hits in his third start for the Reds, who acquired him from the Mets for catcher Devin Mesoraco on May 8.

Josh Harrison recorded three hits and an eighth inning go-ahead RBI in his return from the disabled list, but Felipe Vazquez melted down in the ninth and the Padres took the game and the four game series, beating the Pirates 8-5 Sunday afternoon.

Leading 5-4 in the ninth, Vazquez immediately got into trouble by allowing back to back singles out of the gates.

Rookie starter Nick Kingham got hit early in his spot start Saturday, but still gave the Pirates a quality start. The offense, on the other hand, could not pick him up, and the Bucs dropped their second straight to the Padres 6-2.

Kingham’s third career start got off to a rocky start, allowing three consecutive RBI doubles in the first inning.
