    McCutchen’s Blast the Difference in Win Against Reds

    In the immediate aftermath of the second home run off the bat of Cincinnati’s Brandon Phillips there was a brief sense of, “Here we go again,” as it relates to the creative ways the Pittsburgh Pirates have found to lose games in recent seasons.

    Pirates Win 5-3, Wandy Rodriguez Suffers Hamstring Tightness

    The Pirates finally got a few runs to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 5-3. Andrew McCutchen and Travis Snider both drove in two runs to break Pittsburgh’s four-game losing skid Monday night.

    Pirates’ Bats Stay Cold in L.A. as Bucs Lose 3-0

    Jonathan Sanchez avoided his regular command issues, but the Pirates’ starter came apart in the sixth inning as his offense provided no support in a 3-0 loss at Dodger Stadium on Friday night. The Buccos’ left-handed starter allowed only one walk in his Pirates debut, but was charged with all three runs...

    Pirates Notebook: Notes from the First Series

    Three games into the 2013 season the Pirates are 1-2 and for the most part have not been able to consistently put the ball into play. Andrew McCutchen, not surprisingly, has not been one of the players that hasn’t had that problem. Yesterday in the Pirates Pregame we talked about his commitment...

    Seeing Similarities in the Pirates’ Two Losses

    The Pittsburgh Pirates couldn’t complete a ninth-inning comeback in their 3-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs and it there was a sense of déjà vu to the game. Much like in the Opening Day loss, the Pirates got a strong outing from its starting pitcher. James McDonald allowed just two hits and...
