    The Pirates added two runs in the fifth, which Morton and relievers Tony Watson and Mark Melancon made sure would be enough. Nonetheless, when Charlie Morton met the times that tried his soul, he was standing on the pitching mound at PNC Park on Wednesday night. Andrew McCutchen homered for the Pirates , who have won four straight and are a season-high 25 games over .500. The go-ahead run came sprinting home in the Pittsburgh fifth when Tom Koehler 's pitch to Starling Marte almost struck Marte in the face as he squared around to bunt.
