    Game 24: Offensive Woes Continue, Bucs Drop a 5-1 Decision.

    The Pirates only managed six hits and two walks in the game. Their only run scored on a solo dinger from Andrew McCutchen. Not surprisingly, they didn't win.

    Game 23: Morton Undone by Homers & Errors

    If he could have a couple of pitches and a couple of boots back, the night would've been different for Charlie Morton. You can't, as they say, unring a bell. And you can't pull those dingers back out of the bleachers. The result: the Buccos modest...

    Game 21: Bucs Mark Another Comeback with Extra Innings Win

    It took another 9th inning rally to propel the Pirates to victory. This one took a bit longer as Garrett Jones delivered an RBI double in the 14th as the Pirates won a series in Milwaukee seemingly for the first time since Potsy was hanging out...

    Game 18: Misery Continues in Houston

    It isn't getting any better. And it won't get better, at least in the short term. With Charlie Morton going today, the bullpen desperately needed some rest. As Mick Jagger and Keith Richards once wrote, "You can't always get what you want."

    Game 17: Jakubauskas Injured as Bucs Lose Again

    It wasn't pretty at all (here's a link to a photo - warning: this is gross) as recent minor league recall Chris Jakubauskas was hit in the side of the head by a line drive in the first inning off the bat of Lance Berkman....

    Game 16: Oswalt is Solid as Bucs Drop 4th Straight

    The Pirates broke their scoreless inning streak but managed only four hits in losing to Houston and Roy Oswalt. The losing streak continues at four games.

    Game 15: Brewers Hand Bucs Historic Loss

    In and out of the car as this was going down and I think I went through several stages of emotions. When it was 8-0, it was anger. When it was 13-0 it was disbelief. At 16-0 it was numbness. When it was over, I had...
