• Game 26 Recap: Correia Tosses Gem in Denver

    Correia dropped his ERA below 3.00. It was snowing off and on in Colorado last night. That just doesn't seem right this late in April. It didn't stop Kevin Correia from pitching well and the Pirates as a team from holding the Stones scoreless. Correia was pulled with two outs in the...

  • Game 25 Recap: Um, Uh, Vogelsong?

    Walker had three hits in the loss. I'm dumbfounded. Flabbergasted. I don't have anything even remotely witty or comical to say. No one liners. No sarcastic remark. All I know is Ryan Vogelsong - yes, that Ryan Vogelsong - handcuffed the Pirates on four hits and two walks in picking up his...

  • Game 24 Recap: McDonald Gets Going

    McDonald picked up his first W on the season. James McDonald tossed six plus innings of shutout baseball and the Pirates offense got just enough as the Pirates blanked San Francisco 2-0. It wasn't all that pretty, but McDonald was effective. San Francisco had at least one runner on base in every...

  • Game 23 Recap: Ford’s Speed Costly to Bucs

    Hanrahan took the loss. Giants rookie came into the game with no Major League hits and two career runs. He didn't add any knocks. But he equaled his career total in runs with some daring baserunning which proved to be the difference in the game. Garrett Jones got things started with a...

  • Game 21 Recap: Rain, Morse Ruin Sunday

    Walker had three hits, but it wasn't enough. The crowd was sparse. The weather was rotten. Michael Morse hit a three run homer with two out in the third. Other than that, it was an okay day. The Pirates jumped out early again. Andrew McCutchen doubled to lead off the game and...

  • Game 20 Recap: Pirates Beat Up on Hernandez

    Karstens earned the win with a solid outing. After last night's game was postponed and this one was delayed, the Pirates quickly gave the fans in attendance what they wanted: an early lead. Pittsburgh batted around and scored five runs on six hits in the first inning, giving a nice cushion to...

  • Game 19 Recap: Fish Pound McDonald

    Alvarez hit his first homer of the season. A game whose scoring started with so much promise - Pedro Alvarez' first homer of the year - quickly turned into a disaster. Scott Cousins hit a grand slam in the second inning and Brett Hayes hit a three run bomb in the next...

  • Game 18 Recap: Bucs Shutout Again by Fish

    Morton's stuff wasn't quite electric tonigh. Ricky Nolasco and Edwin Mujica combined on a five hit shutout as the Pirates failed to score for the second time in a row. Charlie Morton was victimized by a bunch of two out hits. It was an ugly second inning. Morton got the first two...

  • Game 17 Recap: Josh Johnson is an Ace

    Maholm didn't make it out of the fourth inning. Marlins starter Josh Johnson faced one batter over the minimum in seven shutout innings. He gave up two singles and a walk and got two double plays behind him. The Marlins managed to piece together two big innings, collecting seven of their nine...
