    Francisco Liriano Digs Up A Gem In 1-0 Pirates Win

    Slider. Changeup. Slider. Slider. Slider. Slider. Slider. Changeup. Changeup. Slider. Changeup. Slider. Slider. Slider. Changeup. Slider. Slider. Fastball! Slider. Those were the pitches Francisco Liriano threw to get Cubs batters to swing and miss en route to nine strikeouts in the Pirates’ 1-0 win over the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday. Liriano gave...

    Prospect Notebook: Jerry Sands Could Be a Good In-Season Addition For the Pirates

    A few weeks ago I wrote about how Jerry Sands was struggling all around, and how there were no silver linings to his game. He wasn’t hitting right-handers or left-handers. He wasn’t hitting for power. It wasn’t a home/road split, or a situation where you could point to the most recent games...

    Pirates Play Game of the Year in Liriano’s Debut, Beat Mets 11-2

    If the Pirates make a run for the playoffs, a real run in which they are keeping pace with the Reds and the Cardinals, look back at this game. Look back at Saturday’s 11-2 win over the New York Mets and see the where it all started to come together. The hitters...

    Nats’ Ninth Inning Rally Beats Pirates

    Saturday was an odd day at PNC Park. For starters, the game was on national television (something that doesn’t happen often to the Pirates). This also happened.  Then the great bullpen debate of 2013 got off and running, and well, it did not end well for the Pirates. Starling Marte did a...

    Pirates Can’t Find a Way to Win in Milwaukee; Pitchers Not Doing Themselves Favors

    Last night the Pittsburgh Pirates were blown out in Milwaukee, thanks in large part to a lot of home runs by the Brewers. The obvious solution? Hit more home runs and beat them at their own game. Tonight the Pirates did just that. They combined for four home runs, which accounted for...

    Pirates Continue Their Late Inning Hitting to Beat St. Louis 5-3

    The Pirates have had a small trend this year with late inning comebacks. They’ve struggled against starting pitchers, but have managed comebacks against opponents bullpens. That appeared once again in the seventh inning of Saturday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Pirates were riding a good start by A.J. Burnett, who...

    Pirates Keep Rolling with 6-4 Win Over Phillies

    The Pirates’ offense jumped on starter Cliff Lee and the Phillies’ relievers for 14 hits for a 6-4 win Thursday afternoon. Add in the fact that manager Clint Hurdle made far more of the right moves than his counterpart Charlie Manuel, and the Bucs wrapped a key four-game series win. This is...

    Pirates Shut Out Phillies 2-0 as Pitching Continues to Thrive

    If Jeff Locke was pitching to save his spot in the rotation… he is well on his way. Locke put together the best start of his brief Major League career Tuesday night to tack on another outing to a strong run of Pirates’ pitching. After some early hiccups, Locke recorded outs on...

    A Lot Being Asked of Pirates’ Bullpen

    Consistency has been a problem for the Pirates this season. The offense needed more than a week to find its stride and the starting pitching (outside of A.J. Burnett and Wandy Rodriguez) has been hit and miss. One aspect of Pittsburgh's club that actually has been consistent has been the strong work...

    Pirates Notebook: Notes from the First Series

    Three games into the 2013 season the Pirates are 1-2 and for the most part have not been able to consistently put the ball into play. Andrew McCutchen, not surprisingly, has not been one of the players that hasn’t had that problem. Yesterday in the Pirates Pregame we talked about his commitment...
