    GCL Pirates Report 6/27/11

    Short GCL Report (by Trevor and Terry Mathews) It should have been a fun GCL game to watch. Luis Heredia was the starting pitcher for the Pirates and Pedro Alvarez started his rehab assignment. As you probably know, instead it turned out to be a rain-shortened 1 ½ inning partial game to...

    Bradenton Marauders Game Recap: 5/13/11

    Baker continued his 2011 struggles in tonight's start. Similar to Wednesday night, mistakes and failure to come up with the big hit did the Marauders in on Friday night's 4-game series finale. Three times, the Marauders put runners on 2nd and 3rd with one out, but couldn't get a hit out of...

    Bradenton Marauders Game Recap: 5/11/11

    Moreno had a rough outing tonight. No one said minor league games were easy to watch. A couple walks, a hit batsman, several pitches that eluded the catcher's glove, the home plate umpire getting hit with two pitches (not foul balls, just pitches), a ground ball going through the 3rd baseman's legs,...

    A Dominating Performance by Kyle McPherson

    McPherson pitched seven shutout innings tonight, with six strikeouts. Kyle McPherson pitched a masterful game on Friday night against the Fort Myers Miracle. McPherson threw three very effective pitches, all with control and got outs (and strikeouts) with all three. His fastball is his bread and butter, throwing in the 92-94 MPH...

    Bradenton Marauders Game Report: 4/15/11

    Déjà vu. In the first Marauders game that I attended in April 2010 against the Fort Myers Miracle, a tall, right-handed pitcher acquired in the Jack Wilson/Ian Snell deal with the Mariners threw a bunch of flat, 89-91 MPH fastballs and got hit around pretty good. In the first Marauders game that...

    Battle of the Bench and Today’s Pitchers

    Today's spring training game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Philadelphia Phillies allowed us to see all of the players battling for bench spots on the Pirates' roster as well as some interesting pitchers.  As has been reported many times, there are really only 3 bench spots available since RF is a platoon...
