Game #93 vs. Rockies

Game #93 vs. Rockies

PNC Park | 7:05 | Youman vs. Josh Fogg | Box
Different chapter of the same book.  Josh Fogg looked like Cy Young, Pirate pitching allowed 14 hits and three walks, and the end result was another Rockie win, 6-2.
The game's start was delayed by half an hour because of passing showers---a thunderstorm that knocked out my power for the entirety of the evening.
The Pirate bats were powerless, too.  Adam LaRoche and Jason Bay combined to go 0 for 7 and are now hitting .235 and .247, respectively.  Shawn Chacon---who pitched the ninth when the game was all but decided---has a higher batting average than all but three of the Pirates who appeared in tonight's game.
Anyone else think this is getting old?
