Worth noting

• With their win on Saturday, the Bucs became the first team to reach 50 wins since there were only 16 of them -- in 1921 and 1960.

• The Pirates have won their last four home games -- and six of the last seven -- in front of PNC Park crowds of 30,000-plus.

• Indianapolis outfielder Andrew Lambo capped off his first month of Triple-A play by earning International League Player of the Week honors after hitting .500 with three homers and eight RBIs through Sunday. Lambo is hitting .314 in his first 20 games with the Indians since his promotion from Double-A Altoona.
