    PNC Park | 7:05 | Van Benschoten vs. Brian Moehler | Box Just a day after the Pirates won despite walking 10 hitters, the Bucs lost after walking nine Astros batters. I'm dumbfounded by this.

    Game #89: Rain, Walks Don't Deter Bucs

    PNC Park | 7:05 | Snell vs. Brandon Backe | Box Neither rain nor walks can stop the Pirates. A lot of other things can. Three hours worth of rain delays (glad I didn't stay up) and 10 walks issued by Pirate pitchers weren't enough to prevent the Pirates from winning their...

    Miller Park | 2:05 | Duke vs. Jeff Suppan | Box I can't imagine the pitching can get much worse. The Brewers jumped on Zach Duke early for four runs. After the Pirates offense showed some life and scored six runs, Duke couldn't hold the lead. Denny Bautista was also clobbered in...
