Byrd, Tabata Homer to Lead Bucs Over Cubs, 2-1

Now, Pirates fans can focus on more significant items on the agenda as the Pirates play out their final 23 games of the 2013 regular season. The most significant item on said agenda is […]

Cardinals Avoid Sweep, Beat Pirates 7-2

Akin to their 13-0 victory against the Pirates on Aug. 1 following four straight wins by the Pirates, the St. Louis Cardinals exacted revenge after the Pirates won the first two games of the weekend’s series.

Pirates Notebook: For Garrett Jones, C’est La Vie

Garrett Jones wasn’t happy this week. While hitting .119 for the month of August entering last night’s game (courtesy of some atrocious luck on balls in play–.119 BABIP), manager Clint Hurdle gave his first baseman “a couple days down”. Jones did not start in the Milwaukee series, and received just one at-bat in a pinch-hit […]
