    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...

    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...

    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. One of those hits was a solo dinger from Skip Schumaker. On the other side, Nyjer Morgan's two run single capped a three...

    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...

    Maine, Mets Roll as Bucs Lose 7th Straight

    It was bound to happen. Paul Maholm didn't have a particularly sharp outing, though he was undone by one bad inning. The Mets batted around in a five run fourth inning to push open a 1-0 game. They would go onto win 10-1. Maholm lasted six innings and gave up seven of...

    Five Run 8th Keys Bucs 6th Straight Loss

    It was 2-2 when the 8th inning started. That was the good news. Then the bad news came. Tyler Yates allowed the first three runners to reach, with Carlos Beltran's single breaking the 2-2 tie. Yates was lifted in favor of Sean Burnett, who threw gas on the fire. He gave up...

    Carpenter Masterful as Cards Earn a Split

    Chris Carpenter tossed 6-2/3 innings of no hit baseball to help St. Louis split the first four games of the 2009 season. Carpenter picked up his first win since 2006 for his effort.   The Pirates scratched out a run off of Carpenter thanks to a walk, two fielder's choices and an...

    Card Bats, Lohse's Arm Beat Back Bucs

    Anyone with delusions of a perfect season can put them to rest. Kyle Lohse was solid in seven innings, giving up just five hits and three runs. Two of those runs came from a Freddy Sanchez homer. Ian Snell gave up at least one run in each of the innings that he...

    McLouth Wins Gold Glove, But Should He Have?

    I am certainly not going to claim advance SABRmetric knowledge on defensive statistics. However, I do know two things:   1. Nate McLouth has been awarded a Gold Glove for 2008. 2. There were some questions among the baseball thinkers earlier this year that Nate's defense wasn't as good as the raw...
