    Game 86 Recap: Karstens Wins Again

    Pittsburgh is four games over .500 this late in the year since 1992. I don’t care what happens the rest of the way. This is a triumph. This is better than I expected. Granted, my expectations were low. I thought a twelve game improvement versus 2010 would be a good bump up....

    Game 85 Recap: Maholm Moves Bucs 3 Games Over .500

    Paul Maholm was solid again, but was almost done in by some unsteady defense. He went six and gave up just one earned run as Pittsburgh moved three games over the .500 mark. Maholm looked ragged early on. Houston used a pair of singles – one from Jeff Keppinger and one from...

    Game 83 Recap: Nats Rally Late to Split Double Header

    The Pirates offense and bullpen was unable to finish off a double header sweep of the Nationals. The home team rallied for a pair of runs in the eighth inning and the offense scored only three runs to ruin the 2011 debut of Brad Lincoln and salvage the split of the double...

    Should the Pirates Make a Move?

    At the beginning of this month, I talked about how the Pirates weren't winning against good teams, and were just beating up on bad teams.  I mentioned that with a June schedule which included the Philadelphia Phillies (34-22 at the time), Arizona Diamondbacks (31-25), Cleveland Indians (33-20), Boston Red Sox (30-26), and...

    Game 74 Recap: Bucs Use Error to Move Back to .500

    It wasn’t pretty. The offense relied heavily on an error by Orioles second baseman Blake Davis, who was making his Major League debut. Kevin Correia was nicked enough to not have a 1-2-3 inning, but danced out of enough trouble to last six frames. The 5-4 win puts the Pirates back at...

    Game 73 Recap: Bucs Offense Breaks Out

    It was a strange night as the Pirates offense was bountiful but starter James McDonald failed to pitch five innings. Either way, Pittsburgh snapped a four game skid by beating up on Jeremy Guthrie and the Orioles. Jose Tabata and Josh Harrison singled to start the game against Guthrie. He then gave...
