They should focus more energy on a team that will actually compete in the division. If they can just break even with the Brewers and win the series verse the Cardinals and Reds that would be something to put them over the top in this division.

The Bucs found a way to beat the Brew Crew – keep it close, get into their pen, and scratch out some late runs. Sound like a familiar script? It should. It’s been working in baseball for years.

The only suggestion that I have is if they make a bargain with the Brewers to change uniforms before the game.
All kidding aside, McHenry’s inability to throw a baseball, which did not just start last night, some of the hits the Brewers had should not have been classified as hits, the SS had 3 hits and only one of them left the infield and that was a broken bat blooper. Sanchez played 1st base like he was in a fog.
The Pirates have not been able to beat the Brewers since 2007, the cast for both teams is almost completely different, but the player types are the same.
I think there are actual reasons why the Pirates can’t beat the Brewers, not a fluke, not a curse, not in their heads, just baseball reasons.
