Is Clint Hurdle out of his mind?

I wonder if the Pirates manager is in his right mind? Edinson Volquez has not won against the Giants since 2008

Volquez has been very solid in the second half, but wow. Here's what CSNBC reports --

The 10-year veteran has one career postseason appearance under his belt, when he started the 2010 NLDS for the Reds and was rocked for four runs in 1 2/3 innings by the Philadelphia Phillies. He was opposed by Roy Halladay, who threw a no-hitter.
Volquez, 31, is coming off a 13-7 season in which he posted a 3.04 ERA and 140 strikeouts to 71 walks. He led the league with 15 wild pitches.

Volquez enjoyed a strong second half this season. He has not lost since his first outing after the All-Star break, a span of 12 games over which the right-hander has gone 5-0 with a 1.78 ERA.
In 11 career starts against the Giants, Volquez is 2-2 with a 5.72 ERA. He did not face San Francisco this season, and hasn't beaten the Orange and Black in his last nine chances. He last beat the Giants in the 2008 season, doing so twice in his All-Star campaign with the Reds.
