"That's baseball … it's a game of adjustments," McCutchen said, via MLB.com. "I'll get there, it's a matter of time," McCutchen said. "I'm not focused on the outcome, just on the feeling. And I'm feeling good, so the outcome will be there. Long as I feel good, I'll get good results."

McCutchen and the Pirates take on the Diamondbacks Sunday at 4:10 p.m.

Pirates' Tony Watson earns win Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:12 pm ET) Pirates pitcher Tony Watson was able to pitch out of a jam Saturday to deliver a scoreless eighth inning and eventually earn the win in his team's 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Watson (1-1) gave up two hits in the outing and had men on second and third with one out, but was able to record a pop out and strikeout to escape the inning.

"There is nobody he doesn't challenge," manager Clint Hurdle said after the game, per MLB.com. "He's been pitching this way for two-plus years. He's cool. He's got a slow heartbeat. He's not going to get rattled."

Pitching coach Ray Searage visited Watson with two men in scoring position and one out, but there was no talk of issuing an intentional walk to the next batter.

"No. Right away, we got with Ray and said we got a plan to get him out," Hurdle said. "We felt we were in an advantage situation with our guy on the mound. We bet on our guy."

Watson gave up three earned runs in his season debut but has been excellent since. Saturday's outing gives him a 3.00 ERA and 11:0 K:BB ratio in 12 innings.
