    Game 114 Recap: Morton Goes 8 to Snap Skid

    A lot of things went well. The offense got some runs against Ryan Vogelsong, with four RBI coming with two out. Charlie Morton pitched well and avoided giving up a big hit. Plus he pitched deep, giving the weary bullpen a needed break. Pittsburgh came out with both fists flying against Vogelsong....

    Game 113 Recap: Padres Sweep, Losing Streak at 10

    The fans keep coming and that is a very good thing. Unfortunately that is about all that is going well right now. The pitching is faltering. The offense continues to be in the running for the National League’s most anemic. Kevin Correia and the bullpen were hit for seven runs. The offense...

    Game 112 Recap: 6 Run 7th Runs Streak to 9

    San Diego used another grand slam and plenty of hits to pile up a Baker’s Dozen on Paul Maholm and the Pirates bullpen. Cory Luebke was money on the bump and at the dish. The Pirates have dropped nine straight. The Padres jumped out in front in the second. Orlando Hudson singled...

    Game 111 Recap: Karstens Bombed as Streak Reaches 8

    I didn’t think when this game began that I’d be researching the last time Jeff Karstens gave up nine earned runs in a game. I also didn’t think about how many Pirates hitters bounced into three double plays in a single game. But really, I should’ve known better. Karstens performance this year...

    Game 110 Recap: 3 Run 8th Pushes Losing Streak to 7

    This was nothing short of a gut punch. The Pirates scraped together a six run fourth inning to take a two run lead only to watch the bullpen surrender three runs in the eighth. The result was the seventh straight loss for a club that is badly in need of answers as...

    Game 108 Recap: Cubs Hit Six Homers in Rout

    The final score was closer than the game was. The Cubs hit six homers and collected 21 hits in an 11-6 pasting of the Pirates. The Buccos have dropped five straight. Kevin Correia was bombed. The offense showed some signs of life with three homers. It wasn’t nearly enough. Correia was pulled...

    Game 107 Recap: Lee Pops Two Homers in Loss

    The Pirates tried a couple of new things and at least one old thing. No thing worked as the offense sputtered behind a decent outing from Paul Maholm. The new things included two new bats in the lineup – Derrek Lee and Ryan Ludwick. The old was Andrew McCutchen hitting leadoff. The...

    Game 104 Recap: Halladay Extends Pirates Hitting Woes

    Much in the same way that Lloyd Bridges picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue in the movie ‘Airplane’, the Pirates picked the wrong day to try to score five or more runs in consecutive games for the first time since July 4 and July 5. Pittsburgh faced Roy Halladay and...

    Game 103 Recap: McCutchen Powers Bucs

    The Pirates pulled away late with a homer from Andrew McCutchen, beating Derek Lowe for the first time in his career against Pittsburgh. Clint Hurdle went to Joel Hanrahan with the tying run on first in the eighth inning as Pittsburgh prevented a third straight heart breaker with a 5-2 win. Atlanta...

    Game 100 Recap: McDonald K’s a Bunch in Pirates Win

    The Pirates made good use of limited scoring opportunities and James McDonald was blazing as the pitchers held Atlanta to a single run. The Pirates remain in first by percentage points over the Cardinals and picked up a game on the Braves in the Wild Card standings. Really impressive win on national...
