9th Inning Rally Puts Bucs on Top

The Pirates compiled 12 hits and just one run through the first seven innings off of Mark Buehrle. The game changed after he left. Octavio Dotel surrendered a solo homer to Eric Hinske in the 8th. The following inning, Bobby Jenks retired the first two hitters and then gave up a game tying homer to Jack Wilson. Nyjer Morgan followed with a double. Delwyn Young knocked him in with a single. Matt Capps struck out the side in the 9th to...

Paul Maholm and Jason Jaramillo don't mix

I noticed something interesting with Paul Maholm recently. Maholm started the season off with a bang, allowing just two runs in 20.2 innings pitched.

Colby Rasmus hit a two run homer in the second off of Jeff Karstens. Albert Pujols later drove home two with a single. Trever Miller relieved Boggs with one out and the bases juiced and got...

Pirates Notebook: Crow and Scheppers start tomorrow

The Indy league regular season starts tomorrow, which should mark the debut of Aaron Crow and Tanner Scheppers, two prospects in the 2009 draft. I say debut meaning the regular season debut, as each player has pitched in Spring Training so far. Both players should hold interest with Bucco fans. Crow was one of the top pitching prospects in the draft last year, and is still a top pitching prospect this year. If he can prove that he...
