ATLANTA -- Ryan Vogelsong provided a real pro outing in his first start in more than two months.It was a rare bright spot that wasnt enough to rescue the struggling Pirates from another loss to the lowly Braves.Vogelsong threw six strong innings but two errors by Jung Ho Kang led to four unearned runs and Pittsburgh fell to Atlanta 5-2 on Thursday night.The Braves, who have the majors worst record, won two of three for only their second home series win of the season.The Pirates, who began the night three games behind NL wild-card leaders Los Angeles and St. Louis, have lost five of six.The 39-year-old Vogelsong made his return after suffering facial fractures when he was hit by Jordan Lyles pitch in his start against Colorado on May 23. He had surgery on June 2.Vogelsong allowed only one run in six innings and left with the game tied 1-1.Real pro outing, Hurdle said. Fun to watch. A really blue-collar performance.The start of the game was delayed 1 hour, 16 minutes by rain.Its just typical of me that Ive got to wait two months to pitch a game and then have a rain delay on top of that, Vogelsong said.Despite the delay, Vogelsong was sharp. He had six strikeouts with only one walk and allowed only three hits.That was great, he said. It felt real good.Felipe Rivero (0-4) walked Adonis Garcia with one out in the seventh, and Garcia moved to second on Ender Inciartes single. Garcia, who has only two steals this season, broke for third base as the left-handed Rivero held the ball on the mound.Rivero finally threw to third, but Kang dropped the throw for an error, allowing Garcia to score.Garcia said he noticed Rivero ignoring baserunners.I just happened to notice on his previous pitches that the pitcher was kind of just taking one look back and then settling before going into the pitch, Garcia said through a translator.Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Rivero recovered in time to make a throw Kang should have handled.Inciarte moved to second on the play and scored on Jeff Francoeurs pinch-hit single to center field.Another error by Kang, who whiffed on Erick Aybars grounder, helped the Braves score two run in the eighth.David Freese cut Atlantas lead to 3-2 with a homer to right off Chris Withrow in the eighth.Jim Johnson pitched the ninth for his seventh save in 10 chances.Braves rookie right-hander Tyrell Jenkins allowed one run on three hits and four walks in six innings. He has at least four walks in four straight starts.WATCHING FROM HOME PLATEPirates pinch-hitter John Jaso hit into a broken-bat double play in the seventh on a grounder off Hunter Cervenka (1-0). Jaso didnt leave the batters box. Hurdle said Jaso thought the grounder to first was foul.STREAKSInciarte had two hits, extending Atlantas longest hitting streak of the season to 15 games. Aybar has a 10-game hitting streak.BOSCAN RELEASEDThe Pirates released RHP Wilfredo Boscan, who had been on the Triple-A Indianapolis DL with a strained oblique, to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Vogelsong. Boscan was 1-1 with a 6.46 ERA in six games, including one start, with Pittsburgh this season. IF Max Moroff, who made his major league debut on Sunday, was optioned to Indianapolis to open a spot on the 25-man roster.TRAINERS ROOMPirates 2B Josh Harrison was 1-for-3 in his first appearance since leaving Sundays game with right leg discomfort after colliding with Milwaukees Keon Broxton on a play at first base. ...

The tourists were bowled out for just 133 before an impressive unbeaten 55 from Jeet Raval in his first Test innings helped the home side reach the close on 104-3.Earlier in the day Kane Williamson won the toss and chose to bowl first on a green surface that had spent the previous day under the covers.No play was possible at the Hagley Oval on Thursday because of rain but the home side soon started to make up for lost time once play got under way on day two.Azhar Ali (15) was the first wicket to fall, cleaned up by a gem which nipped back through the gate to send his off stump cartwheeling and give the 30-year-old de Grandhomme a memorable first Test wicket. Colin de Grandhomme leads New Zealand from the field after his six-wicket haul Tim Southees first four overs were a little wayward but a change of ends worked for him as Sami Aslam edged to Raval at second slip for 19 to make it 53-2.De Grandhomme took two more wickets in the first session after careeless drives from Babar Azam (7) and Younis Khan (2) both ended up being caught in the slip cordon as the tourists reached 88 for 4 at lunch.ddddddddddddAnd things didnt get much better for Misbah-ul-Haqs side in the afternoon as Asad Shafiq (16) poked at de Grandhomme to give Raval his third catch of the innings to make it 88 for 5.Sarfraz Ahmed then cut Southee to Todd Astle in the gully for 7 before Trent Boult bowled Mohammad Amir (3) with a vicious outswinger to leave Pakistan reeling on 114-7.Sohail Khan followed shortly after, chipping to Latham at mid-wicket as de Grandhomme became the eighth New Zealander to take a five wicket haul on Test debut.Misbahs resistance (31 from 108 balls) came to an end when he miscued Boult to Kane Williamson at mid-off.Rahat Ali (0) edged behind as Pakistan were all out for 133 just before tea as de Grandhommes figures of 6-41 eclipsed Alex Moirs spell of six for 155 against England 65 years ago.Then it was the turn of the other debutant Raval to shine as he moved smoothly to 55* from 108 balls at stumps.He was well supported by Henry Nicholls (29 not out) after Tom Latham, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor had all fallen cheaply.The hosts will begin day three 29 runs behind Pakistan but if Raval carries on where he left off the headlines might be dominated by the new boys once again.Watch day three of the first Test between New Zealand and Pakistan live on Sky Sports 3 on Friday at 9.30pm.
