Wild way to end a streak

Well….if you went to sleep with the Pirates ahead 2-0 and looking good yet again, you certainly got an unpleasant surprise this morning. The offense completely stopped producing, Jared Hughes lost the lead, and then in the ninth, Rob Scahill set himself up for disaster, nearly escaped it, then indeed suffered a disaster: a two out walk off grand slam. Normally you wouldn’t...

Over the course of his Pirate career, Hughes has pitched in 170 games and thrown 183 innings. He’s struck out 119 batters and he’s walked 61. He keeps...

The best defensive plays for the week ending July 22nd

Short week? That’s OK. There was still plenty of great defense to hold us over. July 19th, Rockies vs Pirates – Jared Hughes’ quick double play. This line drive off the bat of Charlie Blackmon was just mere inches away from tying the game. Instead, Jared Hughes snared the liner and fired it over to third to finish the inning ending double play. Talk about bad luck for the...
