• The Brewers Just Stole Another Base…

    When the Milwaukee Brewers win games, typically it comes by way of the home run. Monday’s game was not your typical Brewers-Pirates game, except for perhaps the end result. Milwaukee stole six bases, hit no home runs and the Pirates committed three errors (all in the seventh inning with two by A.J....

  • Pirates Play Game of the Year in Liriano’s Debut, Beat Mets 11-2

    If the Pirates make a run for the playoffs, a real run in which they are keeping pace with the Reds and the Cardinals, look back at this game. Look back at Saturday’s 11-2 win over the New York Mets and see the where it all started to come together. The hitters...

  • Gomez Shines on Short Notice in Pirates Win

    With James McDonald a last-minute scratch, it was up to Jeanmar Gomez to pitch on short notice Tuesday night against the Seattle Mariners at PNC Park. Not only did Gomez pitch, but he pitched well as the Pirates beat the Mariners 4-1. Gomez allowed just two hits with five strikeouts and two...

  • Bucs Blow Early Opportunity, Fall to Nats 6-2

    Starling Marte started the bottom of the first inning by parking Gio Gonzalez’s first pitch in the stands. Jordy Mercer followed that with a double before Andrew McCutchen reached on an error and Gaby Sanchez walked to load the bases with nobody out. It appeared as if the Pirates had the Nationals’...

  • Nats’ Ninth Inning Rally Beats Pirates

    Saturday was an odd day at PNC Park. For starters, the game was on national television (something that doesn’t happen often to the Pirates). This also happened.  Then the great bullpen debate of 2013 got off and running, and well, it did not end well for the Pirates. Starling Marte did a...

  • Status Quo for Burnett, Bullpen; Mercer Homers in Pirates Win

    The moments that turned out to be the vital ones for the Pirates in Friday’s 3-1 win against the Washington Nationals pretty much summed up Pittsburgh’s season in a nutshell. With Neil Walker officially being placed on the disabled list, the team had to call Jordy Mercer up from Indianapolis on Friday...

  • Real Thing that Happened: Pirates win in Milwaukee

    In what has almost become a trend, the Pirates used late-game heroics to win a game. What has not been a trend is Pittsburgh winning at Miller Park, which thanks to a four-run eighth inning they did on Wednesday with a 6-4 win against the Brewers. With the Pirates trailing 4-2, Travis...

  • Pirates Can’t Find a Way to Win in Milwaukee; Pitchers Not Doing Themselves Favors

    Last night the Pittsburgh Pirates were blown out in Milwaukee, thanks in large part to a lot of home runs by the Brewers. The obvious solution? Hit more home runs and beat them at their own game. Tonight the Pirates did just that. They combined for four home runs, which accounted for...

  • A Home Run Derby Breaks Out as the Pirates Fall to Brewers 10-4

    Miller Park hasn’t been friendly to the Pittsburgh Pirates over the last few years. It definitely wasn’t friendly tonight. The Pirates lost 10-4 in game one of a three game series in Milwaukee, with the Brewers taking control of the game from the first inning. Milwaukee started off strong, taking a 5-1...

  • Pirates Continue Their Late Inning Hitting to Beat St. Louis 5-3

    The Pirates have had a small trend this year with late inning comebacks. They’ve struggled against starting pitchers, but have managed comebacks against opponents bullpens. That appeared once again in the seventh inning of Saturday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Pirates were riding a good start by A.J. Burnett, who...
