Bucs Blast Twins
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Andrew McCutchen hit a home run and turned an RBI single into race around the bases while Minnesota made two errors in a five-run sixth inning, helping Francisco Liriano and the Pittaburgh Pirates beat the Twins 10-4 Wednesday for a two-game sweep. Jung Ho Kang homered for the second straight day for the Pirates, after going deep for the go-ahead run in the ninth the night before. McCutchen's two-run, two-strike, two-out drive off Ervin Santana (2-1) in the fifth inning tied the game at 3, and the Twins unraveled in the sixth. One run scored on a wild pitch. Then Santana walked two straight batters. Starling Marte hit a sacrifice fly, and McCutchen hit a sharp single that bounced in front of left fielder Eddie Rosario. The ball skipped past him to the warning track, allowing another run to score and McCutchen to reach third. The slow-rolling relay throw scooted underneath Eduardo Nunez's glove for another error that allowed McCutchen to score - but not before he collided with Nunez, contact that was hard enough to knock them both to the ground and cue the blooper-tape soundtrack.

Pirates Acquire Blanton From Royals
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Royals have traded right-hander Joe Blanton to the Pittsburgh Pirates for cash considerations.

Cardinals Trade For Moss
CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the trade says the Indians have dealt outfielder Brandon Moss to the St. Louis Cardinals. In return, Cleveland will receive minor league pitcher Rob Kaminsky. The person spoke today to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced. The Cardinals are in desperate need of a power hitter and outfielder. They haven't scored in 22 consecutive innings and Matt Holliday re-injured his right quadriceps Wednesday. It's the same injury that caused the seven-time All-Star to miss 31 games. Moss signed as a free agent during the offseason. While he did produce - 15 homers, 50 RBIs in 94 games - the Indians have fallen back in the AL wild-card race and figure they would try to get something for the 31-year-old. Moss played four seasons in the NL with Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

Wild Things Split Twin Bill
The Wild Things split a doubleheader with the River City Rascals on Wednesday night at CONSOL Energy Park. In game one, Washington won 2-1 in walk-off fashion on a game winning RBI fielder’s choice by Matt Ford that scored Austin Wobrock in the bottom of the seventh. Ford drove in both Washington runs in the game. Steve Messner (2-1) earned the win in relief. In game two, River City used a four-run first inning to bombard the Wild Things for a 6-1 victory. Rookie Lucas Laster (2-2) tossed a complete game for the win a struck out a career high 12 batters.

Brady Lawsuit Transferred To New York
NEW YORK (AP) - Tom Brady's lawsuit against the NFL in which he wants his four-game suspension overturned will be heard in New York instead of Minnesota. Brady and the players' union filed their suit Wednesday in Minnesota. But the NFL already had filed papers Tuesday in New York, moments after announcing that Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld the suspension for Brady's involvement in the use of underinflated footballs in the AFC championship game. U.S. District Court Judge Richard Kyle ordered the transfer. The judge wrote that he "sees little reason for this action to have been commenced in Minnesota at all." He notes that Brady plays in Massachusetts, the union is headquartered in Washington and the NFL in New York, Kyle adds that "the arbitration proceedings took place in New York and the award was issued in New York."
