Rookie Musgrove roughed up in Astros' 7-1 loss to Pirates

PITTSBURGH (AP) Joe Musgrove is learning that pitching in the major leagues is not as easy as he made it look when he was first called up by the Houston Astros on Aug. 1.

The rookie right-hander had his second straight rough outing while Ivan Nova took a shutout into the ninth inning and finished with a six-hitter and Gregory Polanco hit two home runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 7-1 victory over the Astros on Tuesday night.

The Pirates opened the first inning with six straight hits off Musgrove. Matt Joyce and Andrew McCutchen hit consecutive RBI doubles then Polanco and rookie Josh Bell drove in runs with singles.
