The Pittsburgh Pirates today recalled Chase d’Arnaud and Bryan Morris from Triple-A Indianapolis. They also selected the contract of Rick VandenHurk from Triple-A. In order to make room on the 40-man for VandenHurk, Evan Meek was designated for assignment.
d’Arnaud posted a .252/.325/.383 line over 98 games at Triple-A this season. d’Arnaud joined the club in late August when...
The Pirates had an interesting situation in the fifth inning today. And by “interesting situation” I mean an extremely frustrating series of managing that has become common for Clint Hurdle.
To lead off the inning, Jeff Locke stepped to the plate. He laced a single down the third base line, giving the Pirates a gift runner at first base with the top of the order coming up.
During the 1909 season, the Pittsburgh Pirates won their first World Series title, winning 110 games during the regular season, then defeating the Detroit Tigers 4-3 in the seven game postseason series. The star player on that team was Honus Wagner, but his rookie double play partner that year had a helping hand in getting the Pirates to that first title.

The Indianapolis Indians were eliminated from the International League playoffs tonight, ending their season. That also wraps up the minor league season for the Pittsburgh Pirates. The major league season has a little less than a month to go. But do the Pirates have anything left to play for?
I’ve got to be honest here. I didn’t watch much of the last two games. On Friday I was...

On a busy date for Pittsburgh Pirates birthdays, we have a Hall of Fame first baseman, one of the best sluggers of the 1950′s and a player from the 1909 World Series champs. John Fredland, in his Jolly Roger Rewind, takes a look back at a game from 1958 that broke a very long losing streak. Before we get into the former players, we have one current player to mention. Second baseman...
Pirates' infielder Brock Holt is batting .400 since being called up from Triple A on September 1. He has eight hits in 20 at bats, with three RBI. PiratesDugout.com's George Von Benko caught up with Holt recently.
We have six former Pittsburgh Pirates players born on this date, including one that played for the first team in franchise history and another who was part of a father-son combo in team history. In his Jolly Roger Rewind, John Fredland recaps a record setting game by Roberto Clemente from the 1958 season.

Charlotte Knights 6, Indianapolis Indians 4
Kris Johnson started but pitched only one inning.
The Indianapolis Indians’ 2012 season has come to an end, as they lost to the Charlotte Knights at Knights’ Stadium tonight. The Knights won this best-of-five playoff series, 3 games to 1, and they will move on to face the Pawtucket Red Sox in the Governor’s Cup series...
The third-place Pittsburgh Pirates aren't likely to catch the NL Central-leading Cincinnati Reds, and could soon find themselves out of playoff contention entirely.
Facing Mat Latos isn't likely to help their cause.
Losers in seven of their last nine, the Pirates could be hard-pressed to snap their longest road losing streak in two years in Monday night's series opener...
Downright pathetic weekend if you’re a Pittsburgh sports fan. Steelers played Pirate-like defense and the Pirates played Pirate-like baseball in general. I remember when I buried the Pirates a few weeks ago, they won like two games or something and I had little pang. Maybe I was wrong. I was started to get a little [...]
