    Game 44 Recap: Karstens, Walker Lead Pirates to Win

    5 RBI from Walker put the Pirates on top. Nice outing from Jeff Karstens. Nice offensive display from the Pirates. And a big crowd too. Make it three straight wins for the Pirates. Karstens limited the Tigers to three hits and no walks over six innings. He was perfect through four innings....

    Game 42 Recap: Morton’s Shutout Ends Losing Streak

    Morton stopped the losing streak at six. What a difference a year makes for Charlie Morton. He was an enigma last year. How could a guy with such good stuff be so bad? Well, he has turned it around this year. He tossed his second complete game of the season (and second...

    Game 39 Recap: Big Brewer 7th Sinks Bucs

    Overbay contributed a solo homer in the loss. Milwaukee scored five times in the seventh inning to bust open a close game. Chris Narveson benefited from the outburst.

    Game 38 Recap: Gallardo Topples Bucs

    Cedeno homered and started a bench emptying altercation. Yovani Gallardo has the Pirates number. On the mound. At the plate. He's a pain in the rear. Gallardo added a win, two hits, two runs and an RBI to his already impressive resume against the Pirates. The Pirates wasted an early chance against...

    Game 37 Recap: Kuroda Dominates Bucs

    Maholm pitched into tough luck again. I officially feel bad for Paul Maholm. He can't catch a break. The Pirates offense was unable to do anything against Hiroki Kuroda. The game was scoreless through five. But Maholm surrendered two runs in the sixth and that was enough. Kuroda didn't allow a base...

    Game 35 Recap: Bucs Move Over .500!

    Veras picked up the win in relief. Some clutch pitching and timely hitting mixed with some defense that was questioned to help the Pirates move one game over .500. Starter Jeff Karstens and four relievers combined to limit Los Angeles to just a single run. Jose Tabata's sliding catch of a drive...

    Lyle Overbay: Platoon Candidate

    Overbay is a strong platoon candidate. Garrett Jones is doing his job. The Pittsburgh Pirates moved Jones to right field this year, and brought in Matt Diaz to platoon with Jones, utilizing the strength and favorable platoon splits for each player.  So far this season, that is working out favorably for Jones....

    Game 28 Recap: Morton Wins His 3rd, Bucs Take Series

    Morton pitched into the sixth to get his third win. Everyone who reads this blog likely knows that Charlie Morton only won three games in 2010. He already has three wins and he and his electric stuff will hopefully have little resistance to notching double digit wins. In unrelated news, the Pirates...

    Game 25 Recap: Um, Uh, Vogelsong?

    Walker had three hits in the loss. I'm dumbfounded. Flabbergasted. I don't have anything even remotely witty or comical to say. No one liners. No sarcastic remark. All I know is Ryan Vogelsong - yes, that Ryan Vogelsong - handcuffed the Pirates on four hits and two walks in picking up his...
