He allowed 5 earned runs in 4 innings in what ended up being an awful 17-1 loss to Florida State. Appel completely lost his control late in his outing – he walked five (two with the bases loaded), hit two batters, and threw a wild pitch. His college season will...

Are the Pirates for real?

Pittsburgh has a buzz to it.  A buzz similar to the one the city gets in November and March every year.  Its a buzz that Pittsburgh sports fans are used to as a couple of their beloved teams gear up for their annual playoff runs.  The funny thing is, it’s June. June?  Really?  The Steelers and Penguins don’t play in June.  So what could possibly going on? Why, it’s Pirates...

Royal Flush

After last night’s game, I got this tweet and thought it raised a very valid point: Today was the complete opposite, but the end result was the same. The Pirates knocked off the Royals again, completing a sweep and moving within a half-game of the Reds (who play tonight vs. Detroit). Andrew McCutchen was the only offense this afternoon. He doubled home a run in the first inning...
