The Kansas City Royals added Jayson Nix into the mix on Thursday as they acquired the veteran journeyman infielder off waivers from the Pittsburgh Pirates. Nix, who will likely join the club Saturday, hit .133 with one home run and three RBIs in 34 games this season with the Philadelphia Phillies and Pirates. He also hit .272 in 55 games with Durham, the Tampa Bay Rays’ Triple-A affiliate. “We really love the job that Christian Colon has done, but going into September, we felt we needed another infielder for depth.

Ike Davis’ pinch-hit, three-run home run in the eighth inning lifted the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night. Davis, out of the starting lineup for a sixth consecutive game while converted third baseman Pedro Alvarez again started at first base, connected with two outs off right-handed reliever Seth Maness (5-3) for his ninth home run of the season and third as a pinch hitter. Left-hander reliever Tony Watson (9-1) got the win with two scoreless innings of relief, although he cost starter Gerrit Cole a victory by allowing two inherited runners to score. The win was costly for the Pirates, though.

Gregory Polanco came to the major leagues with plenty of fanfare June 10 when he was called up from Triple-A Indianapolis. The Pirates right fielder was struggling so badly in recent weeks that the Pirates optioned him to Indianapolis on Monday night before they lost 3-2 to the St. Louis Cardinals. Polanco’s slump extended to 1-for-30 over his last nine games Sunday when the 22-year-old went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in a 4-3 loss to the Brewers at Milwaukee. The plan is for Polanco to return to the Pirates on Sept. 2, the day after Indianapolis’ season ends.

Matt Holliday’s two-run single in the seventh inning off Jared Hughes capped a late rally, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 on Monday night. Jon Jay’s pinch-hit single tied the game with two outs in the seventh and Holliday followed with a sharp single to left off Hughes (6-4) to score Jay and Matt Carpenter. John Lackey (2-1) worked out of trouble early to work seven innings and pick up his second victory with the Cardinals after arriving in a trade from Boston on July 31. Pedro Alvarez hit his 18th homer in the second off Lackey, but the Pirates managed little after that to fall further behind St. Louis and first-place Milwaukee in the NL Central race.

The Milwaukee Brewers, in danger of being swept at home by the Pittsburgh Pirates for the first time since 2004 — and hanging to a half-game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Central — snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory in front of a sellout crowd of 42,761. “We don’t get down too much,” Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. Right-hander Mike Fiers stepped forward as the Brewers’ stopper Sunday, holding the Pirates to two runs on two hits — one of them a two-out, two-run home run by left fielder Starling Marte that tied the game at 2-2 in the second inning.
