Cody Anderson learned Saturday afternoon what Corey Kluber has known for two seasons: it's awfully tough to win a game when the bats go cold. Anderson pitched eight strong innings giving up six hits and just one earned run, but it wasn't enough as the Pirates ended the Tribe's five-game winning streak in the 1-0 win.
As good as Anderson was, Jeff Locke was even better for the Pirates. He gave up just two hits in the shutout win, retiring his last 19 batters. Cleveland's batters looked baffled throughout, as only Gomes and Urshela could break through.
The Pirates scored their lone run in the sixth inning, when Neil Walker delivered an RBI single to score Josh Harrison.
The two teams conclude their series with the rubber match on Sunday afternoon at 1:35 p.m.
