West Virginia 5, Hagerstown 3 – Stetson Allie made his season debut. His day: Walk, Wild Pitch, Wild Pitch, Walk, Wild Pitch, Walk, Walk, Strikeout, Wild Pitch. I don’t even know if you could try to have a wor...

Final: Pirates 2, Phillies 1 (10 Innings)
WP: Juan Cruz (1-0)
LP: Joe Blanton (0-1)
Rod Barajas led off the bottom of the 10th with a double off the top of the wall. Then, with two outs and pinch-runner Michael McKenry on third base, Alex Presley hit a broken bat grounder toward the hole on the left side. Jimmy Rollins back handed it and made the throw to first, but it wasn’t in...
It was against high-A hitters, but nonetheless, A.J. Burnett had a nice step forward in his rehab process.
In 4 2/3 innings against St. Lucie, the Florida State League affiliate of the New York Mets, Burnett gave up 1 ER on 2 hits and 1 walk. He struck out 5.
You have to like what we saw out of Burnett today. As long as there are no further setbacks, Burnett could be ready for Major...
Pedro Alvarez was once discussed as the possible savior for the Pittsburgh Pirates going forward, having been selected No. 2 overall in the 2008 MLB First Year Player Draft. He was labeled as another “can’t miss” prospect who played a solid third base and brought along a big bat.
Alvarez made his big league debut with the Pirates in 2012, appearing in 95 games...
Pirates manager Clint Hurdle's mantra for 2012 comes with its own T-shirt.
The team ordered dozens of black-and-yellow shirts with the phrase ''finish'' to remind the Pirates about the importance of mental toughness. Pittsburgh was the story of baseball through the first 100 games of last season before collapsing down the stretch due to injuries and an offense...
Today is day two of The Dugout’s ‘Opening Days’, a celebratory maxi-series (maxi meaning “tampons”) that hopes to touch on every Major League team as MLB drags opening day out until July. Yesterday we took a look at the Tampa Bay Rays, and today we’ll visit the Pittsburgh Pirates, a young team that hopes to capitalize on the unexpected successes of last season with...
Inspiring doesn’t even begin to describe the scene on Thursday when Iraq war veteran Jeremy Feldbusch, a former member of the Army Rangers, threw out the ceremonial first pitch at PNC Park before the start of the Phillies-Pirates game. You see, not only is Feldbusch an army vet, he’s also blind, the result of being hit by shrapnel some nine years ago while serving a tour of...
It wasn’t easy or pretty, but the Pirates found a way to raise the Jolly Roger for the first time this year with a 10 inning 2-1 win over the hated Phillies.
Early on, the game looked just like Thursday’s. The Pirate offense was nowhere to be found (again, somewhat excusable against a great pitcher in Cliff Lee–but they were still terrible). Jeff Karstens kept them very much...

Happy Easter to all! Let’s hope we can celebrate with a series win over the Phillies.
The Pirates traded minor league pitcher Brian Tallet to San Diego for cash or a PTBNL.
Jameson Taillon made his high-A debut last night. He went 3.2 innings, allowed 2 runs, and...
What a nightmare. And I’m not even talking about the game, that the Pirates lost 1-0. As miserable as two hits may be for the Buccos’ offense, Erik Bedard’s pitching performance was very encouraging.
The nightmare I speak of was the experience itself. I have no idea how the Pirates and Pittsburgh could have their heads so far up their asses. I’ve been to Buccos firework...
The Phils lack of offense would come back to haunt them late in the ballgame, before they finally lose to the Pirates in extra-innings on a walk-off infield single, as they lose to Pittsburgh 2-1.
The Phils took the lead in the first as, with two men on, and with one man out, Hunter Pence hits an RBI infield single to the shortstop, scoring in Shane Victorino, who had earlier singled...
Final: Phillies 1, Pirates 0
WP: Roy Halladay (1-0, 0.00 ERA)
LP: Erik Bedard (0-1, 1.29 ERA)
SV: Jonathan Papelbon (1, 0.00 ERA)
Alex Presley led off the bottom of the first with a line drive base hit. Jose Tabata then followed with an infield single. Things were looking good. But then Andrew McCutchen hit into a 6-4-3 double play and the Pirates would not collect another hit off...
