    Game 120 Recap: Doumit Power Pirates Over Birds

    Ryan Doumit picked up the Pirates offense in a big way. He had four hits and hit a three run homer to support the efforts of James McDonald. Xavier Paul also dingered as Pittsburgh took a much needed win from St. Louis. The Pirates got the long ball bats going. Paul hit...

    Game 119 Recap: Bucs Suffer Another Gut Punch Loss in Extras

    Somewhere a baseball pundit will say or has said or will write or has written that good teams win this kind of game. If the Pirates are to stay in contention for a full season, this is the kind of game they will have to win. Nursing a 1-0 lead into the...

    Game 117 Recap: Greinke Mows Down Pirates

    For the Pirates to have much of a chance to return to contention in 2011 they needed to start off strongly in this series with Milwaukee. Zach Greinke made sure that didn’t happen. Milwaukee caught some breaks to pile on a lead against Paul Maholm. In the second Casey McGehee singled and...

    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.

    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.

    Game 98 Recap: Cards Pounce in Fifth

    I’d like to think the offense will get better. I’d like to think the Pirates can stay in it. A game like this – plus 18 years of futility – are draining the optimism from me. Yet the Bucs are one game out of first and that’s really more than I could’ve...

    Game 93 Recap: Bucs Lose Late Lead, Win in 11

    It wasn’t pretty. It wasn’t tidy. But the Pirates came out on top for another road win in Houston. The Pirates let a one run lead slip away in the eighth inning before posting a three-spot in the eleventh. Two seemingly perpetual thorns plagued the Kevin Correia early. Jeff Keppinger doubled and...

    Game 92 Recap: Astros Rally to Push Bucs Out of First

    Pittsburgh rallied for three runs in the sixth inning. But aggressive base running and a costly error helped Houston score three times in the eighth to win it. In the process, the Pirates fell out of first place. The Astros drew first blood against Paul Maholm. Carlos Lee led off the second...
