    Game 82 Recap: Jones, McCutchen Boost Bucs Late

    Game 81 Recap: Bucs Lose a Close One Late

    The Pirates reached the half way mark in the season at one game over .500. That’s great news. The bad news is that they lost a winnable game and let another solid effort from a starter go unrewarded. The Nationals scratched out a run in the ninth to take the opener of...

    Game 76: Bucs Move 2 Games Over .500 Behind Karstens

    It was the biggest crowd in PNC history. Though the Pirates won, many in attendance didn’t go home happy because they are part of Red Sox Nation. For the second straight day, the Pirates played a close one and came out on top. They are now two games over .500 once again....

    Game 74 Recap: Bucs Use Error to Move Back to .500

    It wasn’t pretty. The offense relied heavily on an error by Orioles second baseman Blake Davis, who was making his Major League debut. Kevin Correia was nicked enough to not have a 1-2-3 inning, but danced out of enough trouble to last six frames. The 5-4 win puts the Pirates back at...
