Morton Electric, McCutchen ‘Clutch’, Pirates Lose 3-2

For an inning, it seemed the ship would be righted. Andrew McCutchen hit a 93 mph get-me-over fastball in a 3-0 count off San Diego starter Tyson Ross and Charlie Morton worked eight innings of one-run baseball as he delivered the ball directly to Mark Melancon to pitch the ninth. The Pirates, they of the 74-2 record when leading after eight innings, found a loss added to that mark when the Padres scored two runs in the ninth off...

Pirates Notebook: A Man with a Plan for Martin

Today, this 18th day of September in 2013, Russell Martin gets an off-day. Normally, Martin would see a day off on day-game following a night game as tomorrow’s 12:35 start will follow tonight’s first pitch at 7:05. In the month of September, following a 0-for-4 outing at the plate last night, Martin is now 4-for-40 in the final unit of the season’s six-month calendar.

Cashner Near-Perfect as Pirates Lose 2-0

A day after Francisco Liriano carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning, San Diego Padres starter Andrew Cashner did him one better. But, like Liriano’s ill-fated attempt at history, Cashner’s perfect game was spoiled when Jose Tabata led off the frame with a basehit. Tabata’s hit proved inconsequential, though, when Neil Walker flew out to left and Andrew McCutchen hit into an inning-ending double play. Cashner (10-8) finished his...
