"The way we treat it: Just try to go out there and win. And we were able to do that today."

McCutchen played a significant role with four quality at-bats.

- He pulled a liner to left on an 0-1 pitch in the first. The 104.9 mph exit velocity via MLB's Statcast made it one of the game's hardest-hit balls. …
