Game 26 Recap: Correia Tosses Gem in Denver

It was snowing off and on in Colorado last night. That just doesn’t seem right this late in April. It didn’t stop Kevin Correia from pitching well and the Pirates as a team from holding the Stones scoreless. Correia was pulled with two outs in the seventh after allowing a single to Seth Smith. Jose Veras got the last out in the seventh. Chris Resop struck out the side in the eighth and Joel Hanrahan needed four batters to...

Game 21 Recap: Rain, Morse Ruin Sunday

The crowd was sparse. The weather was rotten. Michael Morse hit a three run homer with two out in the third. Other than that, it was an okay day. The Pirates jumped out early again.

Game 11: Marcum Handcuffs Bucs

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 won’t say that it was. I’d also like to say that the Pirates won this one. The box score won’t say that, either. Instead, five innings of hitless baseball were chucked by Kevin Correia with only a loss to show for...
