    Game 98 Recap: Cards Pounce in Fifth

    I’d like to think the offense will get better. I’d like to think the Pirates can stay in it. A game like this – plus 18 years of futility – are draining the optimism from me. Yet the Bucs are one game out of first and that’s really more than I could’ve...

    Game 89 Recap: Correia’s Home Woes Continue

    Kevin Correia suffered his worst outing of the year and the Pirates offense was held in check by Ryan Dempster and the Cubs bullpen. Correia got in trouble from the opening bell. He walked Kosuke Fukudome and gave up a double to Starlin Castro. After getting two outs, he yielded a run...

    Game 83 Recap: Nats Rally Late to Split Double Header

    The Pirates offense and bullpen was unable to finish off a double header sweep of the Nationals. The home team rallied for a pair of runs in the eighth inning and the offense scored only three runs to ruin the 2011 debut of Brad Lincoln and salvage the split of the double...

    Game 81 Recap: Bucs Lose a Close One Late

    The Pirates reached the half way mark in the season at one game over .500. That’s great news. The bad news is that they lost a winnable game and let another solid effort from a starter go unrewarded. The Nationals scratched out a run in the ninth to take the opener of...

    Game 80 Recap: Karstens Continues to Impress

    Jeff Karstens was efficient and effective over seven innings and the Pirates used a balanced, powerful (seven extra base hits) attack to beat the Blue Jays 6-2 in the rubber game of the inter-league matchup. Pittsburgh jumped out early on Brett Cecil, who was making his first start since April. Alex Presley...

    Is the 2007 Draft Better Than We Thought?

    We all know that the Pirates made a mistake when they passed over Matt Wieters in the 2007 draft, but for the people who follow the draft closely, the rest of the draft looked even worse with a bunch of overdrafts and roster fillers. Now it should be noted that just four years later...

    Game 78 Recap: Presley Powers Bucs to Victory

    Alex Presley hit his first Major League homer and drove in three runs. Kevin Correia continued to pick up wins on the road as Pittsburgh took the opener of the series in Toronto with a 7-6 win. Presley got things going in the third inning with a two run homer off of...
