Andrew McCutchen went 1-for-3 with two RBI in Thursday afternoon's win over the Tigers.

McCutchen hit a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning and an RBI double in the ninth. The two runs driven in gave him 47 for the season. After a slow start to the season, the numbers are more or less where you would expect them to be, as the star outfielder is now hitting .295/.386/.482 with nine homers and those 47 RBI. There's still a little room for improvement in the slugging department, but the rest of his body of work looks shiny enough.

X-rays on Andrew McCutchen's left elbow came back negative.

Pirates fans can breathe a huge sigh of relief. McCutchen is day-to-day. Meanwhile, Saturday's game just got a little more interesting. Both dugouts were warned after Charlie Morton plunked Andrelton Simmons. It's unclear if Morton was retaliating for McCutchen's hit-by-pitch earlier in the game.

McCutchen's early-season struggles are in the rear-view mirror now, as he's hitting .292/.379/.497 with seven home runs and 32 RBI.
