Worth noting

• Led by starters Locke, Kevin Correia and Burnett, the Pirates fanned 12 batters in each game of the weekend series in Houston -- the first time in modern (1900-on) club history that the Bucs whiffed 12-plus in three straight games. The staff began Monday night's game with 1,114 strikeouts -- 10 short of the club record set in 1969 -- when Bob Veale led with 213.

• In Sunday's 8-1 win in Houston, the Bucs scored that many runs without the aid of a homer for only the second time this season. On June 1, they notched an 8-2 win in Milwaukee without going deep.
