Hanrahan day to day with tight hamstring
PHOENIX -- After he threw the final pitch of his save on Sunday in San Francisco, Joel Hanrahan wasn't jumping for joy. He was leaping with pain, and with a little anger.

Turns out, the Pirates closer tweaked his right hamstring on that last pitch. He was not available Tuesday night, and remains day to day with tightness in that area.

"I felt it right away [on that pitch]. It was like a cramp," Hanrahan said. "I'll rest it for a while, hope to get back Friday or Saturday.

"If you watched my reaction after that last pitch, you saw I wasn't very happy. I learned my lesson: Don't throw 31 pitches."

Hanrahan converted his only save opportunity of the young season, but not before issuing a pair of walks that forced him to twice deal with the potential tying run to close out the 4-1 victory in AT&T Park.
