    Game 13 Recap: Morton Goes the Distance in Bucs Win

    A solo blast from Jones started the scoring. The Toothpick Factory resembled the Lumber Company of old. The Pirates jumped on former Bucco Bronson Arroyo with both feet. Arroyo scattered twelve outs among nine hits and two walks. The Pirates got to him for five tallies. On the flip side, Charlie Morton...

    Game 12 Recap: Brewers Continue Mastery Over Buccos

    Maholm got no support and suffered the loss. Beer is stronger than steel. Milwaukee owns Pittsburgh. Randy Wolf was dominant. Paul Maholm deserved better. The Bucco batters who let down the team again. Milwaukee started early against Maholm. A single and a walk put two men on with Prince Fielder up. In...

    Game 11: Marcum Handcuffs Bucs

    A rough sixth inning caused Correia's first loss on the year. If the Pirates are able to edge close to a .500 season (oh what sweet dream), we will look back on this game as one that got away. I'd like to say that this was a pitcher's duel. The box score...

    Game 7 Recap: Rogers Wrecks Home Opener

    Walker's first inning miscue led to an early deficit Great weather (61 degrees). Nice crowd (second largest in PNC history). Home for the first time after a successful road trip to start the season. A fitting tribute to Chuck Tanner before the game. Everything went according to plan except someone silenced the...

    Game 6 Recap: Correia Sharp as Bucs Best Birds

    Correia is 2-0 after another strong outing This club is 4-2 and needs just 78 more wins to a season above .500. Early returns on Kevin Correia are beyond my expectations. The Pirates starter and winner on Opening Day made his second outstanding start of the year. Correia limited St. Louis to...

    Game 5 Recap: Cards Scratch Out One Run Win

    Alvarez struck out three times tonight and hit into a double play. There will be better days for Pedro Alvarez. There will be - and already have been in his short career - stellar days. This was not one of them. Alvarez whiffed three times and hit into a double play as...

    Early Look at the 2012 Payroll

    Earlier this week the 2011 40-man roster and payroll page was updated, giving the estimated payroll for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2011, based off of the Opening Day roster.  A lot can, and will, change between now and the end of the 2011 regular season, so that payroll figure is far from...

    Game 1 Recap: McCutchen and Walker Power Pirates to Win

    Walker had a big day at the plate, leading the Pirates to a 6-3 win. If there is one trend the Pittsburgh Pirates have had over the years, it's that they haven't capitalized when the opposing pitcher is on the ropes.  Today, with the Chicago Cubs leading 2-0, and Ryan Dempster struggling...
