    Z's Fireworks, Johnson's Tater Push Cubs Past Bucs

    I love Carlos Zambrano. I enjoy watching people who are passionate about their work. Unfortunately, that passion went a bit overboard in the 7th. With Nyjer Morgan on courtesy of a single and a two base error, Z uncorked a pitch in the dirt. Morgan broke for home. Close play and.... Safe....

    Floyd, White Sox Shutout Bucs

    Where has all the offense gone? After averaging 11 hits per game during the five game winning streak, the Pirates offense has managed just seven safeties in the last two games - both losses. Tonight it was Gavin Floyd's turn to keep the Pirates down. He allowed two singles and two walks...

    Big 7th Fuels Bucs to Series Win

    The Pirates offense broke free with a little help from Ryan Spilborghs. The Pirates sent 14 ment to the plate and Spilborghs made a pair of errors as the Pirates put up 10 runs and ran off to an 11-4 win to take the series. Zach Duke pitched seven innings to get the...

    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...

    Pujols Powers Cards Past Pirates

    Albert Pujols went 4-4 including a solo homer in the first and a single leading off the Cardinals three run fourth inning to push St. Louis past Zach Duke and the Bucs. Duke didn't have his best outing, but he was okay. He gave up four in 5-1/3. The big blow in...

    Arroyo Runs Bucs Loss Streak to Four

    The Pirates scoreless streak has reached 22 innings as former Pirate Bronson Arroyo threw 8 shut out innings to pick up his fourth win. He allowed just five singles and three walks while not allowing a runner past second base after the first inning. Joey Votto had two hits and the game's...

    Duke Dominate as Bucs Beat Friars

    Is it wrong to get excited when Zach Duke pitches like I did in 2005? He went 8-1/3 inning, allowing just one run, five singles, a triple and a pair of walks. He picked up his third win and dropped his ERA to 2.65. The Pirates strung together a bunch of hits...

    Braves Pounce on Pirates

    Jeff Francouer delivered a two run single in the first and Casey Kotchman added another RBI knock later in the inning to put the Braves in front early against Zach Duke and the Pirates. Javier Vazquez and the Atlanta bullpen needed nothing else to hold the Pirates down. Atlanta tagged on several...

    Duke Sparkles Again

    Not sure where this has come from. Magic? Joe Kerrigan? Whatever it is, Zach Duke has won back-to-back starts for the first time since June of last year. After that start 6/9/08 vs. Arizona, Duke's record was 4-4. He would go 1-10 the rest of the way. Duke walked two and allowed four hits....

    Duke Sharp as Bucs Solve Wellemeyer

    It was not hard to imagine the Pirates getting beaten tonight. Todd Wellemeyer was 3-0 in five starts against Pittsburgh in 2008. Zach Duke has been underwhelming since his rookie campaign and he hadn't beaten St. Louis since tossing a complete game eight hitter back on August 11, 2006. Naturally, Duke pitched...
