Rockies Rally in 9th off Capps

I feel for Paul Maholm. He tossed shutout baseball for seven innings and then watched the bullpen struggle. Maholm allowed just five hits and whiffed four. The Pirates offense struggled against Jorge De La Rosa. He allowed seven hits and one run in seven innings to go along with 10 Ks. The Pirates lone run was an RBI single from Craig Monroe. Tyler Yates almost blew the lead in the 8th. Two consecutive hits put runners on the corners....

Bucs Fail to Hit with Runners on, Cards Prevail

The Pirates had Mitchell Boggs on the ropes throughout his 4-1/3 innings of work. Despite giving up 9 hits and 2 BB, he allowed just one run as the Pirates stranded runner after runner, hit into double plays and had a runner gunned down at third. Colby Rasmus hit a two run homer in the second off of Jeff Karstens. Albert Pujols later drove home two with a single. Trever Miller relieved Boggs with one out and the bases juiced and got...

Bucs Win 2nd Straight as Ohlendorf Stops Cards

Ross Ohlendorf beat the Cards in his third attempt. St. Louis beat him twice in St. Louis. But Ohlendorf bested them tonight with six innings of two hit ball.

Jack Wilson had three hits and Adam LaRoche, Freddy Sanchez and Brandon Moss had two...

Duke's Hurling Snaps Loss Streak

I never would’ve thought to describe Zach Duke as a stopper. But he came through in a huge way to end the Pirates recent skid that delivered them from above .500 to the cellar. Duke allowed just one run on four hits over 8 innings. It looked ugly early on. He allowed a two out homer to Albert Pujols (who else) in the first. Ryan Ludwick followed with a single. In the second, the Cards put two more runners on, but didn’t...

Bucs Swoon Continues as Mets Sweep

The Pirates have now lost 12 of 13. Both clubs had 11 hits. But the Mets put three hits together in a three run fourth and three more hits in a four run 8th that sealed the game. The fourth inning did in Ian Snell who went six and allowed the Mets first three runs. He struck out five and walked one. Livan Hernandez benefited from the bunched hits from his offense. He also went six innings. The Pirates travel home to face St....
