    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...

    Game 118 Recap: Brewers Shutout Pirates

    It was Marco Estrada. It might has well have been Bill Travers or Jerry Augustine or some random guy out of the stands. Estrada tossed five innings and four relievers each tossed one as the Pirates were shutout on three hits. Estrada was given a spot start in place of Chris Narveson....

    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...

    Taking Another Look at the Pitching Staff

    About a month ago, the Pittsburgh Pirates had one of the best starting pitching rotations in the league.  They were ranked 4th overall, thanks to an impressive stretch where they got at least six innings and two or fewer runs from each starter every time out.  I looked at how good the...

    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...

    The Pirates pulled away late with a homer from Andrew McCutchen, beating Derek Lowe for the first time in his career against Pittsburgh.

    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 89 Recap: Correia’s Home Woes Continue

    Kevin Correia suffered his worst outing of the year and the Pirates offense was held in check by Ryan Dempster and the Cubs bullpen. Correia got in trouble from the opening bell. He walked Kosuke Fukudome and gave up a double to Starlin Castro. After getting two outs, he yielded a run...
