Walker went 3 for 4 with a double and two RBIs in Sunday's win in Arizona.

Walker has a nine-game hitting streak, but he hadn't seen great improvement in his average until the last three. The 7-for-12 stretch includes four doubles and has him up to .300.

Walker was 3 for 5 with two doubles Friday at Milwaukee.

Walker is 5 for 16 with three doubles in four games.

Walker is getting a raise, just not the one he wanted.

An arbitration panel sided Saturday with the Pirates in their case against Walker, who was seeking a pay bump to $9 million in 2015. The 29-year-old Walker will instead receive $8 million. He made $5.75 million last year. Walker led all National League second baseman with a career-best 23 home runs in 2014. Walker hit .271 with 76 RBIs in 137 games for the Pirates, who claimed a second straight wild-card berth.
