Game #138: Bucs Win Two Straight!

Great American Ball Park | 7:05 | Ohlendorf vs. Edinson Volquez | Box For the first time since August 18-19, the Pirates have won consecutive games. Adam LaRoche and Ryan Doumit each drove in a pair of runs. LaRoche’s 8th inning RBI broke a 4-4 tie and Andy LaRoche followed with an other run scoring hit to put the Pirates up by a pair.

Game #135: Suppan, Cameron Bop Bucs

PNC Park | 7:05 | Maholm vs. Jeff Suppan | Box I’m posting this before it is over. The Brewers just tacked on three in the 9th to make it 11-3. Jeff Suppan went seven innings and allowed just three hits. One of those hits was a two run dinger from Brandon Moss. Paul Maholm’s day was ruined by a five run fifth in which Milwaukee batted around. Mike Cameron popped a three run homer for the big blow in that frame. I’m...
