    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 Beat Braves 4-2 to Complete Successful Homestand

    The Pittsburgh Pirates getting out to a 10-8 record to start 2013 would be far less impressive if half of those games were against, say, the Marlins, Padres and Astros. Strength of schedule plays a larger part in early-season stats and records than many of us want to recognize. Yes, the Texas...

    Pirates Notebook: First-Pitch Strikes Key for Rodriguez

    Wandy Rodriguez returned from injury Friday for the Pittsburgh Pirates and promptly mowed down the hottest team in baseball. Rodriguez was sharp from the¬†beginning and allowed just one hit in seven innings and combined with Mark Melancon and Vin Mazzarro to face the minimum of 27 batters in the Pirates’ 6-0 win...

    Pirates Notebook: Top of the Lineup Heating Up

    Wins are for the most part an antiquated statistic in baseball, but sometimes a win can carry a bit of significance. A.J. Burnett got his first one of the 2013 campaign Wednesday night at PNC Park, but that was not what people will remember about the game. Burnett not only got strikeout...

    A.J. Burnett: Anatomy of a One-Hitter

    So many events have to go right for a no-hitter to happen. We sometimes lose sight of that, living in this Golden Age of 23 no-hitters in the last six years. Even with no-hitters becoming almost as common an occurrence as Clint Barmes home runs, they still require a potent combination of...

    Pirates Pregame: Tabata, Not Snider, Starting in Right Field

    If you follow enough of the Pirates media on Twitter, then you noticed buzz surrounding the announcement of today's lineup when it was tweeted by the official Pirates account early this afternoon.

    Pirates Complete a Huge Comeback Victory Against the Reds

    There were many moments in Pittsburgh’s improbable come-from-behind 10-7 win against Cincinnati on Sunday that could be pointed to as turning points. Michael McKenry’s first home run, Starling Marte’s home run, McKenry’s second home run, Travis Snider’s near home run — all possible moments when the momentum shifted to the Pirates side....

    Pirates Win 5-3, Wandy Rodriguez Suffers Hamstring Tightness

    The Pirates finally got a few runs to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 5-3. Andrew McCutchen and Travis Snider both drove in two runs to break Pittsburgh’s four-game losing skid Monday night. The good news of a victory was mitigated, though, by the third-inning exit of Pirates starter Wandy Rodriguez. The left-hander felt...

    Pirates Notebook: Jonathan Sanchez Making Pirates Debut

    Left-hander Jonathan Sanchez will be making his first regular season start for the Pirates on Friday night at Dodger Stadium. “Jonathan has made as good a stride as anyone we had in camp, with the command, with the four-pitch mix,” Hurdle said. “He’s excited. He’s in the best place he’s been: physically,...
