Liriano Pitches Pirates Past Dodgers
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Josh Harrison had two hits with two RBIs and the Pittsburgh Pirates jumped on Dan Haren early in a 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. Harrison's two-run double down the left field line capped a four-run outburst in the first against Haren (8-8). Pittsburgh has won five of six since the All-Star break to move a season-high seven games over .500 (54-47). Travis Snider added two hits, including his fifth homer, for the Pirates. Francisco Liriano (2-7) allowed one run on four hits over seven innings to pick up his first victory since May 30. Pittsburgh batted around in the first against Haren, who has lost four consecutive starts. The right-hander settled down to get through five innings but the Dodgers could do little against Liriano. Los Angeles didn't collect a hit until Miguel Rojas doubled with one out in the fifth and never threatened as Liriano put together his best start of the year.

Wild Things Sweep CornBelters
The Wild Things complete a three-game sweep of the Normal CornBelters with a 4-3 victory on Wednesday night at the Corn Crib. Washington grabbed the lead in the fourth inning on an RBI single by C.J. Beatty and a two-run triple by Carter Bell and led the rest of the way. William Beckwith paced Washington with a 3 for 3 day at the plate. Making his Wild Things debut, starter Troy Marks (1-0) tossed 5.1 innings, allowing only one run and picked up the win. Jonathon Kountis collected his 22 nd save of the year with a scoreless ninth inning. The losing pitcher for Normal was Matt Packer (1-1) who allowed four runs, three earned, in six innings of work.

Adios Pace For Orchids Saturday
The 2014 Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids will be held Saturday afternoon at The Meadows. McWicked is the 7-5 morning line favorite and will leave from post two, and one of those trying to chase him down will be Somewhere In LA (photo), racing out of post two. Somewhere in LA is trained by Jimmy Takter who has enjoyed success in the Adios. If he wins, it would be the third Adios victory in the last six years. "I don't know, really," Takter said when asked about his success at the local track. "The Adios is a great race, tough to win, but we race here alot and it's fun to go out there and win." The card begins at 12:20 with the Adios expected to go off around 4 p.m. If you can't be there, join WJPA 1450-AM for live coverage with Bob Gregg, Jim Jefferson and the call of the race from Meadows longtime announcer Roger Huston.
