McCutchen gets key hit, then hit, Bucs top D-backs

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) - Andrew McCutchen drove in the go-ahead run with an infield single in the eighth inning, then was hit by a pitch in the ninth Saturday night as the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-3.

McCutchen's single off Andy Marte's glove keyed a four-run eighth that made it 5-1.

The next inning, McCutchen was hit squarely in the back by a pitch from reliever Randall Delgado with a 2-0 count, one out and runners on second and third.

McCutchen stayed in the game and eventually scored. The NL MVP was plunked a day after Pirates reliever Ernesto Frieri hit Diamondbacks star Paul Goldschmidt in the left hand, causing a fracture that put him on the disabled list.

Jared Hughes (6-2) got the win with a scoreless seventh. inning. Brad Ziegler (4-2) took the loss.
