    Team Effort Repels Houston

    It was one of those games where nobody and nothing really stood out. Paul Maholm was good but not great in giving up four runs over seven innings. Those runs came in the form of a Hunter Pence dinger and a couple of RBI producing at bats from Carlos Lee. The Pirates...

    Hampton Sends Bucs Back to Earth

    The one game euphoria I had after Andrew McCutchen's successful ML debut has been driven from my mind. Mike Hampton and Jeff Fulchino combined to limit the Pirates to six singles and one run. Hampton went seven, allowing five hits, the lone run and no walks. He whiffed five. The Astros went...

    Moehler's Arm, Maysonet's Bat Squelch Pirates

    What's worse: Getting beaten down by a pitcher who hadn't gone the distance in nine years or Giving up four hits to a player who had only three career knocks? Well, they both happened tonight in Pittsburgh. Brian Moehler tossed a complete game - his first since 8-8-00 to get his second...

    Z's Fireworks, Johnson's Tater Push Cubs Past Bucs

    I love Carlos Zambrano. I enjoy watching people who are passionate about their work. Unfortunately, that passion went a bit overboard in the 7th. With Nyjer Morgan on courtesy of a single and a two base error, Z uncorked a pitch in the dirt. Morgan broke for home. Close play and.... Safe....
