ANAHEIM, Calif. Matt Duffy Jersey . -- The Pittsburgh Pirates have been making a lot of noise this season and are tempting their long-suffering fans again with the possibility of a winning season for the first time since rookie Gerrit Cole was still in diapers. Francisco Liriano took a shutout into the seventh inning, and Andrew McCutchen, Pedro Alvarez and Gaby Sanchez homered, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 6-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night. "It was awesome just to be able to do that, and we had a lot of fun doing it," said McCutchen, who ended a homerless drought of 98 at-bats. "This is the way we should come out and play every day. We dont have to depend on just one or two guys. Everybodys coming through. To have a complete lineup like that from top to bottom is always fun." Liriano (6-3) allowed a run and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings, struck out six and walked three. The Angels run came in the seventh, when rookie J.B. Shuck hit a ground-rule double just inside the right field line and Mike Trout drove him in with a two-out single on the left-handers 104th and final pitch. Liriano has allowed fewer than three runs in seven of his nine starts after missing the first 35 games of the season because of broken bone in his non-throwing arm. The victory put the Bucs a season-best 15 games over .500 (45-30). After 75 games last season they were 40-35, but finished with a losing record for an unprecedented 20th straight year. Jerome Williams (5-3) gave up five runs -- four earned -- and eight hits over six innings in his eighth start of the season and first since June 12. The right-hander took over the rotation slot vacated by lefty Jason Vargas, who was placed on the disabled list Friday because of a blood clot under his pitching arm. "He made really good pitches in the first inning, and he really made some really good pitches throughout the game," catcher Chris Iannetta said. "But in that three-run inning he gave up the home run to Alvarez, and that was just a good piece of hitting. All of his mistakes were up in the zone and they capitalized on them." Alvarez has homered in three consecutive games. The Bucs added two more that inning on an RBI single by No. 9 hitter Jordy Mercer and a bases-loaded walk to Russell Martin. One of the runs was unearned, the result of a fielding error by third baseman Alberto Callaspo on a slow-hit grounder by Marte that kept the inning alive. "Actually, if Williams threw the whole game the way he did in the first inning, it would have been complicated for us," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "Hes pitched extremely well for them, and this was probably not normal for what theyve seen from him this season. There were mistakes he made tonight and we were able to do something with those mistakes. A lot of balls were elevated." Travis Snider extended the margin to 4-0 in the fourth with an RBI single after a leadoff double by Neil Walker. McCutchen added his eighth homer in the fifth, and Sanchez capped the scoring in the eighth against Michael Kohn with a homer off the left field pole, his sixth this season and second in his last 44 games. After striking out four of his first five batters, Liriano found himself in a jam with runners at the corners in the third inning before retiring Albert Pujols on a grounder to second base. The three-time NL MVP is 1 for 15 against Liriano. "His fastball was 92, 95, and had good movement," Iannetta said. "He had a really tight slider tonight and a very good changeup. That was his equalizing pitch, and we swung through it a lot." Howie Kendrick, hitting at a .381 clip over his previous 35 games, legged out a double to right-centre with one out in the Angels fourth and was thrown out at the plate as left fielder Starling Marte charged Erick Aybars sharp single and made a one-hop peg to Martin. "I knew he was out right when they sent him home, because I know he has a cannon," McCutchen said. "When that ball was coming to him and I saw (third base coach Dino Ebel) waving, I was like, Hes out. Hes not a typical left fielder because he has the arm of a right fielder. So when he threw that ball, I knew he was toast." NOTES: Shuck started in RF in place of Josh Hamilton, who missed his second straight game with a sore right wrist. Hamilton is batting just .207. ... Hurdle, whose only season as the Texas Rangers hitting coach coincided with Hamiltons 2010 AL MVP campaign, had a chance to reconnect with Angels slumping right fielder during this series. "It was an extremely good visit," Hurdle said. "I think theres a lot of challenges, and hes in a challenging place. I reminded him of the strengths and the skills he does have, and also that he cant do it alone. Theres some other pretty talented people in that clubhouse and on that ballfield." ... Hurdle played in 18 games at Angel Stadium with the Kansas City Royals when it was still known as Anaheim Stadium, and was 10 for 46 lifetime. ... Liriano is 2-4 with a 5.82 ERA in eight career starts against the Angels. Wilson Ramos Jersey . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. Womens Rays Jerseys . PETERSBURG, Fla. . According the Toronto Star, a knee injury will keep Sundin out of the lineup, which includes former teammates Gary Roberts, Darcy Tucker, Tie Domi and Curtis Joseph. It was just over a week ago that the Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder faced off for the first time this season. It took place in Los Angeles and the visiting team grabbed a hard fought 85-83 victory.The teams square off again on Friday at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City and the Clippers look to avenge their lone loss of the season.The Nov. 2 contest was up for grabs throughout, but it was Oklahoma City that found a way to make the biggest plays in the most crucial moments to snare the victory.Despite that, the Clippers (7-1) believe they have shown an ability to put teams away and display a killer instinct that may not have been present in previous seasons.Were definitely trying to do that, Los Angeles guard Jamal Crawford said. But we understand its a long season. Well have stretches where we may lose a couple of games in a row. So you dont want to get too high or too low over the course of the season. But you want to build good habits.Facing the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night, the Clippers didnt allow the game to come down to the final possessions. They came out and attacked Portland on their way to 111-80 victory.Los Angeles led 61-32 at halftime and never let up. Coach Doc Rivers wants to see more of that killer instinct.I think we need to continue to learn how to close teams out, Rivers said. Right now, when we get a lead it seems like they want to run it up even more. This team stays disciplined and continues to play solid, which we need to continue working on throughout the season.Putting teams away hadnt been a problem for Oklahoma City (6-2)). Adeiny Hechavarria Jersey. Before facing Toronto on Wednesday, the Thunder had built big enough leads that the starters were able to rest in the fourth quarter in the previous two games.Against the Raptors, it was the Thunder who made mistakes in the fourth quarter that prevented them from earning the win.We battled and fought, the guys did, Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. I think it was maybe a six point game with a relatively decent amount of time left in the game. I think a lot of things for us defensively, we can look at from rebounding to pick-and-roll coverage to our transition defense where we can continue to try to get better and improve.Against Toronto, the Thunder often got away from their inside play and settled for long three-pointers. As a team they hoisted up 34 attempts and made 12 of them.That included guard Victor Oladipo, who was 5 of 9 from behind the arc.Im just ready to shoot at all times, just waiting for it, Oladipo said. When it comes to me I just try to be aggressive.Even though they had an easy night Wednesday, guard Chris Paul says that doesnt give the Clippers an advantage.I dont think one has anything to do with the other, Paul said. Im glad we didnt go into triple overtime. But we know how tough it is to play in Oklahoma City. Those guys have been playing extremely well. For us, its something that Doc (Rivers) has harped on since day one. Its a business trip for us and we have to go there with a single mindset and win it Friday night.
