PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Andrew McCutchen went 4 for 5 and finished a home run short of a cycle, and Jordy Mercer drove in a career-high four runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to an 8-2 rout of the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday. Mercer had two of Pittsburghs 13 hits, and each of the Pirates eight position players who started the game had at least one. Pittsburgh jumped on starter Roberto Hernandez in the first inning and scored four runs on five hits and sent nine men to the plate. All the runs scored with two outs against Hernandez, who threw 45 pitches in his inning. Gerrit Cole (7-4) made his second start since coming off the disabled list after he had right shoulder fatigue. Hernandez (3-8) settled down after the rough first and pitched 5 2-3 innings. He gave up five runs, 10 hits and four walks, and struck out three. Hernandez was pulled in the sixth after he walked Starling Marte with two outs. Marte got the Pirates first inning surge going with a one-out single, but he was thrown out at the plate by shortstop Jimmy Rollins, who fielded a hit by McCutchen in shallow left that bounced off the glove of third baseman Cody Asche. After Neil Walker walked, Russell Martin and Josh Harrison connected for RBI singles. Mercer drove in two runs with a single after Gaby Sanchez walked, giving the Pirates a 4-0 lead. They added a run in the fourth when Gregory Polanco singled and scored on McCutchens double to left. Cole threw just 80 pitches in five shutout innings and allowed only one hit innings. He walked one and struck out five before being removed from the game because of right lat soreness. Philadelphia got on the board in the sixth against reliever Stolmy Pimentel, who walked three of the four hitters he faced and didnt record an out. After Pimentel walked Ben Revere and Rollins, Chase Utley singled down the right field line to make it 5-1. Jared Hughes replaced Pimentel after a walk to Ryan Howard. Marlon Byrd hit into a double play that scored Rollins, before Hughes struck out Asche looking. The Pirates answered Philadelphias two runs with two in the seventh when Mercer doubled in Martin and Sanchez. McCutchen drove in his second run in the eighth with his second double, scoring Polanco from first after he led off with a walk. Justin Wilson, Tony Watson and Jeanmar Gomez each worked a perfect inning to finish off Pittsburghs win.

Both benches stood, equally stunned at what was taking place. Thompsons teammates continued to get him the ball and he just kept shooting.They just kept wanting to see the show, Thompson said. Thats what they kept telling me.Thompson set a league record for the most points in a quarter Friday night, a thrilling 37-point third period that powered the Golden State Warriors to a 126-101 victory over the Sacramento Kings.I was one of the luckiest NBA players ever to play with Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan, David Robinson and some of the greatest players ever, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. As many spectacular things as Michael did, which he did nightly, I never saw him do that.Thompson finished with a career-high 52 points, pleasing 19,596 fans at rowdy Oracle Arena with a performance that will long be remembered in the basketball-loving Bay Area. The All-Star hopeful made all 13 shots, including a league-record nine from 3-point range in a quarter, and hit both of his free throws during a 12-minute span of pure basketball bliss.It was kind of a blur. I wish I could go back and enjoy it some more, but moments like that go by really fast, Thompson said.His streaky shooting stroke helped the Warriors (35-6) erase a sloppy showing in the middle of the game for its franchise-best 18th consecutive home victory. Golden State became the 10th team to win at least 35 games halfway through a season.Thompson surpassed the 33-point mark set by George Gervin in 1978 and matched by Carmelo Anthony in 2008 for the most points in a quarter. Michael Redd and Joe Johnson shared the previous mark for most 3s in a quarter with eight.Thompson, who signed a four-year, near-maximum contract extension worth about $70 million this summer, couldnt remember ever dominating a game like that.Maybe elementary school, he joked.A day after backcourt teammate Stephen Curry received the most All-Star votes in the NBA and Kerr learned he would lead the Western Conference in the leagues showcase game, Thompson let the world know he expects to be right next to them at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 15.Thompson stunned Sacramento and just about everyone in the building with a performance unlike any other in league lore. He hit one I-cant-believe-he-just-made-that basket after another including a 28-footer and added an alley-oop from Curry on the fastbreak just for good measure.Thompson said two other shots left him just as baffled: an off-balance one in the corner, and another off a curl that got a shooters bounce. He even made one from about 10 feet beyond the 3-point line after a play that didnt count.At that point, Warriors assistant Jarron Collins turned to Kerr and quipped, We have to get more balance.ddddddddddddhompson seemed to love every minute of it, flapping his hands to the crowd while running down court. During one timeout, he sat on the bench with his hands over his head, staring at the scoreboard in disbelief.It was reminiscent of Michael (Jordan), because it was sort of otherworldly, Kerr said.Thompson scored 19 consecutive points during one scintillating stretch, which ended with him zipping a left-handed pass to Draymond Green for a layup.You dont get that hot in (NBA) 2K, Green said, referring to the popular video game.Thompson finally a missed a shot from 21 feet at the start of the fourth quarter, only in the game because Kerr said players pleaded with him not to take him out. Thompson left to a standing ovation with 9:28 remaining.You always dream about it, being a big-time scorer and a big-time player. Its crazy its reality, said Thompson, who finished 16 of 25 from the floor, 11 of 15 from long range and 9 of 10 on free throws.Thompsons touch made sure the Warriors equaled the franchises highest win total before the All-Star game. The defending champion 1975-76 Warriors went 35-13 before the break and finished with a team-best record of 59-23.DeMarcus Cousins had 28 points and 11 rebounds in Sacramentos sixth straight loss, though he wasnt that frustrated after this one. How could he be?I mean, the ball was barely touching his fingertips and he was releasing it. Its pretty hard to stop something like that, Cousins said.Rudy Gay was ejected in the second quarter, leaving the Kings (16-27) short-handed.Golden State started with a flurry from long range, going on a 22-2 run in the first six minutes to build an 18-point lead. Kerr dug deep into his bench early, and with second-unit anchor Andre Iguodala getting the night off to rest, the Warriors had little punch off the bench.Sacramento sliced the deficit to just three early in the second quarter, trailed only 56-51 at the half and briefly took the lead in the third quarter until Thompson took over.TIP-INSKings: Fell to 5-14 since Michael Malone was fired as coach. ...
