Volquez lasts just 5 innings, allowing crushing grand slam in the 4th inning

  • Despite not locating his pitches very well, Edinson Volquez cruised through the first three innings but trouble came in the fourth inning. Volquez loaded the bases and left a hanging breaking ball to Brandon Crawford who delivered a grand slam, giving the Giants a commanding 4-0. With the way Madison Bumgarner is pitching, it was a crushing blow to the Pirates. Volquez lasted just five innings, allowing 5 hits, and 5 earned runs. Pittsburgh trails 5-0 in the sixth.
10/1 vs Giants: 5.0 IP, 5 H, 5 ER, 3 SO, 3 BB, HR (1), 83-55
