    Game 147 Recap: Ciriaco Keys Comeback

    Brad Lincoln and Kyle Lohse started in what became a see saw game. In the end, it wasn’t Albert Pujols who struck the deciding blow. Instead it was someone far less obvious – Pedro Ciriaco. The Cardinals jumped on Lincoln for a run in the first. Consecutive singles to start the game...

    James McDonald’s attempt to win his tenth game evaporated in a four run fifth inning. Javier Vazquez didn’t allow a run in six innings as the Fish swept the Buccos. The Pirates stranded three in the second inning when McDonald struck out with the bases loaded. Florida put runners on second and...

    Game 145 Recap: Sanchez Spoils Locke’s Debut

    Anibal Sanchez allowed just one hit in throwing a complete game shutout. Jeff Locke was decent in his first effort in The Show. He was scored on in only one inning, but that was all Sanchez would require. Florida got to Locke in the third inning. Emilio Bonifacio reached on an infield...

    Game 144 Recap: Ohlendorf Pounded by Marlins

    The news was mostly bad. There was a little good news. But it doesn’t temper the clobbering that the Pirates took. Omar Infante homered twice and knocked five runs. Logan Morrison had four hits and drove in three. Ross Ohlendorf was ineffective. Infante drove in a run in the first with a...

    Game 143 Recap: McCutchen Hits Two Homers in Bucs Win

    Brian Burres wasn’t all that sharp. J.A. Happ gave up two homers to Andrew McCutchen. It all came down to a wild play in the eighth in which Jason Jaramillo singled in the game winning run and started a double play. Burres gave up two dingers in the first. Carlos Lee homered...

    Game 142 Recap: Myers Holds Back Bucs

    Brad Licoln and Brett Myers both pitched well. Houston got a pair off Licoln. The Pirates offense, as it has done far too often this year, failed to amount much of an attack. Myers gave up just one tally. Trouble for Lincoln began in the second. Carlos Lee led off with a...

    Game 141 Recap: McDonald is Stellar like Monica Gellar

    Maybe the Astros clubhouse was filled with the sounds of Milli Vanilli’s ‘Blame it on the Rain’ after this one ended. If the scoreboard operators in Pittsburgh are anything like most scoreboard operators, they were playing rain themed songs (‘Who’ll Stop the Rain’ by CCR, ‘Laughter in the Rain’ by Neil Sedaka,...

    Derrek Lee returned from the disabled list and knocked in five runs. The big blow was a grand slam of Carlos Marmol with two gone in the ninth. Pittsburgh took a 1-0 lead in the first. Alex Presley doubled. He moved to third on a passed ball. Andrew McCutchen walked. Derrek Lee...

    Game 138 Recap: Burres Stifles Cubs

    Brian Burres’ outing was an unexpected and welcomed surprise. Summoned from the minors and pushed into the rotation for Jeff Karstens, Burres allowed just a solo homer to Carlos Pena and the bullpen was perfect as the Pirates took the opener in Wrigley. Josh Harrison and Alex Presley bolstered the offense with...
