• Prior to Tuesday night, only three of Joel Hanrahan's 84 career saves had been one-out jobs: May 28 of this season against the Reds, May 9, 2009 (against Arizona, with the Nationals) and on Sept. 15, 2011 (against the Dodgers).

• Rookie righty Jared Hughes, who relieved Erik Bedard in the seventh inning Tuesday night to pitch out of a bases-loaded jam, has stranded 16 of the 17 runners he has inherited.

• Teams are generally expected to play at least .500 ball on the road to be considered serious contenders. The Pirates took an away record of 21-26 into Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Rockies -- but were 21-21 since dropping their first five road games of the season, in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

• Garrett Jones, who went 3-for-5 Wednesday and lacked only the triple for a cycle, is a career .405 hitter (17-for-42) in 11 games at Coors Field, with 13 RBIs. His Coors hits include seven doubles and four home runs.
