Liriano allowed a run and six hits in six innings while striking out 12 in Sunday's 9-1 win over the Mets.
Analysis: Liriano snapped his three-start losing streak, and the strikeout total was a season high as he became the third straight Pittsburgh starter to fan at least 10 batters. Dating to 1914, no team has had four straight starters accomplish the feat.
McCutchen was 2 for 3 with a home run and two RBIs in Sunday's win over the Mets.
Analysis: McCutchen is as hot as he's been this year, going 9 for 15 with three homers and two doubles in four games. Since the start of 2012, he's batting .438 against Miami - his best mark against any NL team. The Pirates host the Marlins for three games beginning Monday night.
Bautista is out of the lineup for a second straight day after getting a cortisone shot in his strained right shoulder. He hopes to play again Tuesday.
Analysis: The slugger got the shot over the weekend because the injury had failed to progress after more than a month. Bautista hurt himself on a throw to first base in an April 21 game against Baltimore. He took five days off before coming back as the designated hitter on April 27, but has yet to return to the outfield. He resumed throwing last week.
