    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 36 Recap: Dodgers Pound Buccos Back to .500

    McCutchen hit two solo dingers. The Dodgers broke open a scoreless game with ten runs in the final four frames. Ted Lilly pitched six innings and kept the Pirates in check for the win. Through five innings Kevin Correia and Lilly matched each other. Combine the two offenses only sent one man...

    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...

    Game 34 Recap: Doumit’s Dinger Lifts Bucs Late

    Hanrahan picked up his tenth save. The Pirates blew another late lead, but a three run homer from Ryan Doumit in the bottom of the eighth brought the Pirates back from the brink. James McDonald pitched very well. Instead of a win, he gets a no decision. The Pirates had a couple...

    Game 33 Recap: Morton Continues Electricity

    Overbay hit his second home run to start the scoring. Charlie Morton picked up his fourth win of 2011 by going 7-2/3 innings against Houston. The Pirates offense showed some signs of life with to multi-run outbursts. The fun started in the second when Lyle Overbay drilled a lead off homer against...

    Game 30 Recap: Friars Hit Three Homers to Beat Bucs

    Beimel took the loss in relief. San Diego's bats awoke somewhat. The Padres got three solo homers from players who had yet to homer in 2011 in beating Pittsburgh 6-5. The Pirates drew first blood off of Mat Latos. Andrew McCutchen drew a walk to lead off the game. Xavier Paul's bunt...

    Game 29 Recap: Early Runs Aid McDonald’s Strong Effort

    A first inning tater from Jones set the tone. The Cincinnati Reds have been plagued by giving up first inning runs. Tonight their former ace, Aaron Harang now pitching for San Diego, was troubled by the same problem. Harang gave up a pair of two run bombs in the first inning as...

    Game 27 Recap: Iannetta’s Bomb Sinks Bucs

    Maholm was roughed up in the second. It might be a good sign for Colorado that some of their slumping hitters contributed to a four run outburst in the second inning. What certainly isn't a good sign for the Pirates is that their offense continues to be anemic. The game started solidly....

    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...
