So much for hometown scoring.
Pirates superstar Andrew McCutchen had strong words for the official scorer of Wednesday's loss against the Chicago Cubs - Pittsburgh's fourth straight defeat - after the All-Star center fielder was given an error on a hard line drive by slugger Anthony Rizzo.
"He smoked it," McCutchen said of Rizzo's third-inning at-bat. "It was a knuckleball. Whoever scored that an error should be fired. That's unbelievable. I did everything I could to catch it."

McCutchen's frustrations appeared to be indicative of Pittsburgh's struggles as a whole. The second-place Pirates scored just five runs during the Cubs' three-game sweep at PNC Park to fall six games behind division-leading Chicago.
