    Game 27 Recap: Iannetta’s Bomb Sinks Bucs

    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. Andrew McCutchen drove a pitch from Jason...

    Game 25 Recap: Um, Uh, Vogelsong?

    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 first win since before anyone outside of...

    Game 24 Recap: McDonald Gets Going

    James McDonald tossed six plus innings of shutout baseball and the Pirates offense got just enough as the Pirates blanked San Francisco 2-0. It wasn’t all that pretty, but McDonald was effective. San Francisco had at least one runner on base in every inning except the eighth. But they were unable to...

    Game 23 Recap: Ford’s Speed Costly to Bucs

    Giants rookie came into the game with no Major League hits and two career runs. He didn’t add any knocks. But he equaled his career total in runs with some daring baserunning which proved to be the difference in the game. Garrett Jones got things started with a solo homer off of...

    Game 22 Recap: Pirates put good Wood to Nationals

    The Pirates fell behind early before catching up during contest interrupted some showers. Paul Maholm overall looked good. The Nationals came out swinging against Maholm.

    Game 21 Recap: Rain, Morse Ruin Sunday

    The crowd was sparse. The weather was rotten. Michael Morse hit a three run homer with two out in the third. Other than that, it was an okay day. The Pirates jumped out early again. Andrew McCutchen doubled to lead off the game and scored on a single from Neil Walker. It...

    Game 19 Recap: Fish Pound McDonald

    A game whose scoring started with so much promise – Pedro Alvarez’ first homer of the year – quickly turned into a disaster. Scott Cousins hit a grand slam in the second inning and Brett Hayes hit a three run bomb in the next inning as Florida clobbered James McDonald and the...

    Game 16 Recap: Bucs, Correia Manhandle Reds

    I will readily admit that I didn’t see this coming. The Pirates won easily and took three of four from the Reds in Cincinnati. Tonight’s game was a good mix of outstanding pitching and a team effort on offense. It all added up to an easy peasy win. Just as in yesterday’s...

    Game 15 Recap: Bucs Win See-Saw Battle

    Reds starter Edinson Volquez continued his first inning troubles. Andrew McCutchen and Jose Tabata started the game with consecutive home runs. Lyle Overbay walked and Neil Walker doubled. Volquez whiffed Pedro Alvarez before walking Garrett Jones. Chris Snyder walked to force in a run and Ronny Cedeno’s deep fly ball made it...

    Game 14 Recap: Hernandez’ Slam Dooms Bucs

    Ramon Hernandez highlighted a seven run fifth inning with a grand slam as Cincinnati returned the beating by winning 11-2. The pitch Hernandez drove over the fence was the last toss from Pirates starter James McDonald. The Reds drew first blood as Jonny Gomes hit a solo homer off McDonald in the...
