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...

A.J. Burnett impressive in rehab start

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...

The Dugout Opening Days ’12: Pittsburgh Pirates

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...

By the slimmest of margins…

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...

An error and a leaky bullpen allows the Pirates to win their second straighth walk-off victory against the Phils as the Phils lose, 5-4.

An error on a strikeout, and a leaky bullpen allows the Pirates to pull off another walk-off win against the Phils as they lose in the bottom of the ninth, 5-4. The Phils took the lead in the first as, with one man on, and with one man out, Hunter Pence hits an RBI double, knocking in Shane Victorino, who had earlier singled, then moved up to second base on Jimmy Rollins’ ground...

Game 3: Pirates 5 Phillies 4

When the Pirates fell behind the Phillies 4-1 in the top of the seventh, it was hard to feel that they didn't deserve the deficit. Garrett Jones double-clutched away an inning-ending double play chance in the first inning, which left Shane Victorino on second base with two outs. James McDonald made a bad pitch, and Hunter Pence hammered it for a run-scoring double. In the fourth...

Padres acquire Brian Tallet from the Pirates

The 0-3 San Diego Padres have acquired left-handed pitcher Brain Tallet from the Pirates, Corey Brock of reports. Tallet will report to Triple-A initially but will probably be called up at some point this season, and just like must pitchers on the decline that land in San Diego, he will probably pitch lights out and revitalize his career. The Pirates will either receive cash...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Philadelphia Phillies – Game 3

Another close game, but this time the Bucs win! The Bucs win! Seriously though, they can’t afford to lose many games where they only give up one or two runs. And what is more gratifying than a walk-off infield single? It sure was nice of the Pirates to put the Phillies away though, ending a [...]
