• Game #49 at Cincinnati

    Great American Ballpark | 1:10 | Duke vs. Kirk Saarloos | Box The Pirates hammered Kirk Saarloos. He didn't even get anybody out. Then Jerry Narron removed him for former Pirate Victor Santos. The Bucs scored five times in the first, highlighted by an upper deck three run bomb from Jason Bay...

  • Game #48 at Cincinnati

    Great American Ballpark | 7:10 | Chacon vs. Bronson Arroyo | Box I'm surprised. The Pirates gave a no decision to Aaron Harang yesterday and beat up on the shabby Cincy bullpen. Tonight they got after Bronson Arroyo early to beat the Reds two best hurlers. Jason Bay doubled in a run...

  • Series Preview: Pirates/Reds

    The Pirates limp into Cincinnati tonight, looking to snap a 5-game losing streak against the equally hapless Reds. The Reds head into the series with the Bucs having lost 3 in a row, and currently reside in last place in the oft-criticized National League Central. While Cincinnati has gotten impressive performances from...

  • Game #47 at Cincinnati

    Great American Ballpark | 7:10 | Maholm vs. Aaron Harang | Box What a strange (and wonderful and bad) game. Strange because of how it ended. Wonderful because the Pirates pulled it out. Bad because Ryan Doumit left after taking a follow through from Ryan Freel to the back of the head....

  • Indians’ Green Goes Deep Twice

    boxscore Indianapolis Indians' infielder Nick Green thought he was having a good day when he smashed a solo home run over the left field wall at PNC Field in Scranton, PA. His day got quite 'grand' in the 5th inning, when he hit another one over the left field wall, but...

  • Game #46 at St. Louis

    Busch Stadium | 1:10 | Gorzelanny vs. Braden Looper | Box This was a tough one. The Pirates probably didn't deserve to be in this game. But they were. And more than that, they had a chance to tie the game late, but failed. Tom Gorzelanny was vicitimized for 10 hits in...

  • The Pirates can compete

    Jim Tracy was right, you know. From yesterday's Post-Gazette: "We have four and a half months of baseball left to play and, obviously, we're sitting in a division right now where clubs are not playing all that well," manager Jim Tracy said. "We're not in a division where a club is pulling...
