Worth noting

• Sunday is the 37th anniversary of Pittsburgh's largest margin of victory in a game. The Pirates beat the Cubs, 22-0, on Sept. 16, 1975, at Wrigley Field. Rennie Stennett set a Major League record by going 7-for-7 while the Pirates had 23 hits compared to the Cubs' three.

• Second baseman Neil Walker entered Sunday one RBI shy of joining Andrew McCutchen (87), Garrett Jones (77) and Pedro Alvarez (75) in the 70-RBI club. The Pirates haven't had four players drive in at least 70 runs since 2007.
