    Game 161 Recap: Fielder Hits Three Homers

    Prince Fielder hit three homers and drove in five runs. Starters Ross Ohlendorf and Randy Wolf weren’t particularly effective. Each left the game before it was decided and wound up with a no decision. Fielder’s last homer was a two run shot that broke a 4-4 tie in the seventh. The small...

    Game 160 Recap: Presley, Alvarez Drive Home Three Each in Win

    The Pirates and Brewes engaged in an offensive battle. The pitching was porous and sloppy. Only one of the 17 runs that was scored came on a dinger. The Pirates outlasted the Beer Men in the end as the home team left 13 men on base. The see-saw battle began early on....

    Game 151 Recap: Bucs Fall to Kuroda

    In Jeff Locke’s Major League debut, the Pirates were beaten on a one hit shutout. They got five more hits in his second start. But that wasn’t enough. Locke was lifted after three innings and James Loney poked a three run pinch hit homer as the Dodgers pulled away late. The Pirates...

    Game 150 Recap: Ohlendorf Pitches, Powers Bucs to Win

    Ross Ohlendorf made the case for the rotation in 2012 (there will be a lot to sort through Spring Training) with a fantastic seven inning effort. The Pirates batted around in a four run second with Ohlendorf poking his first homer and accounting for three of the tallies. It looked troublesome early...

    Game 149 Recap: Bats Quiet in 82nd Loss

      In the same way that Don Henley once wrote, “Nobody on the road. Nobody on the beach. I feel it in the air. The summer’s out of reach,” a .500 season is officially out of reach for the Pirates. Edwin Jackson beat the Pirates and Charlie Morton this afternoon. Pittsburgh scored...

    Game 147 Recap: Ciriaco Keys Comeback

    Brad Lincoln and Kyle Lohse started in what became a see saw game. In the end, it wasn’t Albert Pujols who struck the deciding blow. Instead it was someone far less obvious – Pedro Ciriaco. The Cardinals jumped on Lincoln for a run in the first. Consecutive singles to start the game...

    Game 144 Recap: Ohlendorf Pounded by Marlins

    The news was mostly bad. There was a little good news. But it doesn’t temper the clobbering that the Pirates took. Omar Infante homered twice and knocked five runs. Logan Morrison had four hits and drove in three. Ross Ohlendorf was ineffective. Infante drove in a run in the first with a...
