Karstens' new injury could pave way for Owens to crack Pirates' rotation

Even if the Pirates' superb pitching begins to sputter -- and it surely didn't through the 5-4 victory Thursday night in Cincinnati -- they have no shortage of solutions. Yes, even with Jeff Karstens getting reinjured in a rehabilitation start Thursday night. Prospect Rudy Owens, a 24-year-old lefty, is banging down the door at Triple-A Indianapolis with a 4-2 record...

Game 56 Live Chat: Pirates vs Reds

Battlin’ Bucs best Reds

Every win is enjoyable, but this one really meant a lot for the Pirates. It was a back-and-forth contest on the road with the division leader, and they ended up pulling it off in improbable fashion to win the series (their fourth in a row) and complete a winning road trip.  Awesome. For some reason, all the Pirates wins on this road trip started off pretty poorly. This game was...
