    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 148 Recap: Loss 81 is Here

    Before anything else, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that the Pirates will need to win their final 14 games to avoid being below .500 for the 19th straight season. We all knew this day was coming. It doesn’t make it any easier, especially given that the Pirates allowed...

    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 143 Recap: McCutchen Hits Two Homers in Bucs Win

    Brian Burres wasn’t all that sharp. J.A. Happ gave up two homers to Andrew McCutchen. It all came down to a wild play in the eighth in which Jason Jaramillo singled in the game winning run and started a double play. Burres gave up two dingers in the first. Carlos Lee homered...

    Game 141 Recap: McDonald is Stellar like Monica Gellar

    Maybe the Astros clubhouse was filled with the sounds of Milli Vanilli’s ‘Blame it on the Rain’ after this one ended. If the scoreboard operators in Pittsburgh are anything like most scoreboard operators, they were playing rain themed songs (‘Who’ll Stop the Rain’ by CCR, ‘Laughter in the Rain’ by Neil Sedaka,...

    Game 139 Recap: Lee Slams Cubs in Ninth

    Derrek Lee returned from the disabled list and knocked in five runs. The big blow was a grand slam of Carlos Marmol with two gone in the ninth. Pittsburgh took a 1-0 lead in the first. Alex Presley doubled. He moved to third on a passed ball. Andrew McCutchen walked. Derrek Lee...

    Game 138 Recap: Burres Stifles Cubs

    Brian Burres’ outing was an unexpected and welcomed surprise. Summoned from the minors and pushed into the rotation for Jeff Karstens, Burres allowed just a solo homer to Carlos Pena and the bullpen was perfect as the Pirates took the opener in Wrigley. Josh Harrison and Alex Presley bolstered the offense with...

    Game 125 Recap: Hanrahan Blows Ninth Inning Lead

    The Pirates and Reds played through a pair of rain delays. In the end, it was delayed gratification for Pirate fans as Joel Hanrahan gave up two runs in the ninth to blow a rare save opportunity. Pittsburgh jumped out early. Jose Tabata singled to start it off against Mike Leake. Andrew...

    Game 124 Recap: Bucs Score Late to Win

    Neil Walker collected three of the Pirates ten singles and drove in a pair. Pittsburgh pulled ahead with two runs in the bottom of the seventh off of Aroldis Chapman to win 5-3. The Reds jumped in front first. Charlie Morton gave up a single to Brandon Phillips to start the game....

    Game 123 Recap: Bucs Drop See Saw Contest

    The Pirates battled back from deficits all night to tie the score in the eighth, with good chances to push ahead. They were unable to take the lead in the eighth, with two runners getting thrown out at the plate. In the ninth, Joel Hanrahan had a very rare poor outing and...
