    导出博客文章PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Pirates are running out of time. It may already be
    too late.Ryan Vogelsong pitched four shaky innings in Pittsburghs 8-0 loss to
    Cincinnati on Sunday, closing a disappointing four-game set against the
    last-place Reds. The Pirates have dropped 11 of 13 overall to fall off the pace
    in the NL wild-card race.After Cincinnati got to Vogelsong (3-5) for five runs
    in the second on its way to a big lead, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle emptied his
    extensive bench, giving playing time to some younger and little-used players.
    But Hurdle insisted he isnt throwing in the towel.Not yet. Not for me, he said.
    My vision is to get us playing better. Thats my thought. Im not going to walk
    out of here with anything other than knowing I have a job to do. Negative
    emotions, I dont carry them at all. Frustration isnt going to help me do what I
    need to do to get those men motivated and continue to play. Discouragement, Im
    not going to go there. I dont go there. We needed to play better. We didnt. How
    do we play better? Thats where my focus is.After opening the series with a 4-1
    win on Thursday night, the Pirates dropped the last three games. Left fielder
    Gregory Polanco was ejected by umpire Pat Hoberg for arguing balls and strikes
    in the third inning of the finale. It was Polancos first career
    ejection.Cincinnati left-hander Brandon Finnegan (9-10) struck out seven in five
    innings, but allowed five hits and walked five.The seven strikeouts played for
    him, Hurdle said. It got him out of the all messes. We werent able to convert in
    some situations that were there for us with a single, let alone a double, let
    alone a homer. That would have been great. Our execution in crunch time when we
    were trying to move or score or (get) a two-out hit has been challenging. ... We
    werent able to punch through and get that big hit off him.Jumbo Diaz followed
    Finnegan with two innings and Ross Ohlendorf and Wandy Peralta each got three
    outs, completing a seven-hitter. The Pirates (69-72) left 10 runners on base and
    went 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position.The Pirates are always good,
    Finnegan said. They have a good-hitting team. The Reds and Pirates dont really
    get along very well. But its nice beating any team, especially winning a
    series.Cincinnati grabbed control in the second, taking advantage of an error by
    center fielder Andrew McCutchen and some wildness by Vogelsong. Holt had the big
    blow, a two-run triple that gave the Reds a 4-0 lead. Eugenio Suarez followed
    with an RBI single.Vogelsong was charged with six runs and seven hits.Cincinnati
    (60-82) finished with 13 hits. Joey Votto, one of the hottest hitters in the
    majors, was the only starting position player to fail to record a hit for the
    Reds.TRAINING ROOMReds: Alfredo Simon will miss the rest of the year with a
    right shoulder injury that will require surgery. Simon went 2-7 with a 9.37 ERA
    this season. ... INF Jose Peraza was given the day off after being hit by a
    pitch in his hand Saturday.Pirates: 2B Josh Harrisons right groin injury is more
    than day to day and could potentially be season ending, according to general
    manager Neal Huntington.UP NEXTReds: Keyvius Sampson (0-1, 3.90 ERA) will move
    to the rotation in order for the Reds to skip the start of Anthony DeSclafani.
    Sampson will be making his second start in 2015 after starting 12 games in
    2016.Pirates: Gerrit Cole (7-9, 3.55 ERA) is expected to return from the
    disabled list to start Monday at Philadelphia. Cole has been inactive since Aug.
    24 with right elbow inflammation. He has made just 20 starts after pitching 32
    games in 2015.
