Pirates' Guerra finally gets his call

After nine long years in the Minor Leagues, Deolis Guerra has found himself on a Major League roster. When the Pirates put Rob Scahill on the 15-day disabled list, Guerra – a right-handed reliever – was called upon to take his place. “I was having a good season down here (at Indianapolis), but I wasn't expecting the call today because this ballclub is doing such a great...

Reds down Pirates in 13 innings on Phillips' homer

  Guess Brandon Phillips' thumb is OK. The Cincinnati second baseman hit a long home run off Pittsburgh's Rob Scahill in the top of the 13th to lift the Reds to a 5-4 win on Thursday night. Phillips had three of Cincinnati's season-high 17 hits and started a double play in the eighth with a diving stop and a behind-the-back flip to shortstop Eugenio Suarez. Not bad for a guy who...

Reds outlast Pirates 5-4 in 13 innings on Phillips' homer

PITTSBURGH (AP) Brandon Phillips led off the top of the 13th inning with his fourth homer of the season to lift the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night. Phillips, who sat out Wednesday night's game due to a thumb injury, jumped on a fastball from Rob Scahill (2-4), leading the Reds past the Pirates for the seventh time in nine meetings...

A more significant sweep

These Pirates already had a couple of sweeps to their credit this season – against the Mets, Marlins, Brewers, and DBacks. They also had a couple of road series wins: the DBacks sweep, and 2 of 3 from the Brewers. This one meant a little more. Sure, the Giants are the defending champs, but to get a road sweep against one of the better teams in the league is big…it really shows...

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...

Norris' grand slam lifts Padres to 6-2 win vs Pirates

SAN DIEGO (AP) Derek Norris hit a grand slam with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to lift the San Diego Padres to a 6-2 victory over Pittsburgh on Friday night, snapping the Pirates' season-high seven-game winning streak. Norris' homer to center, his fourth, capped a crazy ninth that saw the Pirates get two straight force plays at home while fielding a five-man infield. Jedd...

Game 23: Cardinals 2 Pirates 1

Before the game, I wrote this: Last year, the Pirates were 8-11 against the Cardinals. They lost six of those games by one run (two of those were walkoffs), and another one on a walkoff two-run home run. The Pirates lost the NL Central by two games last year. There are plenty of things that happen in a 162-game season to separate two teams out from each other, but when the 2014...

VIDEO: Addison Russell’s Flying Bat Nails A Fan In The Face

Addison Russell has a problem and it has nothing to do with his .160 batting average. The Chicago Cubs’ rookie second baseman is having trouble holding on to his bat. In Monday’s 4-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates, Russell led off the seventh inning and on the very first pitch from Rob Scahill he swung, losing grip of his bat, sending it into the stands between the Cubs...

The Pirates lost, and it was boring

Not much to really say about a game like this one. The Pirates played poorly all-around and were never really in it. It stinks to watch, especially in a division game, but over 162, games like that will happen. It’s the second one of the year by my count (the first being the lone loss to the Brewers).  The fact that they went in on a five game win streak makes it a little easier...

Game 13: Pirates 4 Cubs 3

Well, that was exhausting. With Mark Melancon “unavailable” last night (we’ll see where things go from there), it seemed like the Pirates were in great shape after Rob Scahill got the last out in the sixth inning for Vance Worley. Caminero in the seventh, Hughes in the eighth, Watson in the ninth with a 4-1 lead seemed like a solid enough route, even after Caminero had trouble...

A wintry win

It was another weird night at a mostly-deserted PNC Park on Wednesday, but through a mini-snowstorm and more rough moments for the bullpen, the Pirates were able to pull-out a much needed win. Yes, you read that right, a mini snowstorm. Oh the weather outside is weather. — MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) April 23, 2015 The “snow” only lasted a half inning ...

Not going unbeaten at home

I’m fairly comfortable chalking this up as “one of those nights” for the Pirate offense, which was totally shut down by Tigers pitcher Shane Greene. I didn’t know much about Greene coming in, and a brief look at his profile shows a fairly promising young pitcher but nothing totally amazing. He’s off to an amazing start this year, though, and absolutely cruised through 8...

Blaming Hurdle for Opening Series Bullpen Failure is Misguided

The Pirates had a very rocky series with the Reds to open the 2015 season. Three games, three rain delays, three losses, and three times the bullpen failed. Hopefully bad things come in threes and this series will soon become a distant memory. The opening series disaster in Cincinnati culminated with manager Clint Hurdle being heaped with a fair amount of scorn for electing to use...

Pirates set their final roster

The Pirates set their Opening Day roster this afternoon, but I spent most of the day grading tests and working on a season preview for tomorrow, so I’m just getting around to putting the post together now. There is exactly one surprise with this final roster: Charlie Morton’s ugly spring indicated coupled with the rehab from his hip surgery landed him on the disabled list,...

News and notes: Hurdle, Scahill, Anna

Bucs notes from a somewhat busy Veterans Day: Clint Hurdle did not win the NL Manager of the Year award – he came in second to Washington’s Matt Williams. You could have probably guessed that Williams would win it after the first-year manger led the Nats to the league’s best record a year after they failed to make the playoffs. That’s just how these awards tend to work....

Rockies send RHP Scahill to Pirates for RHP Carle

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Colorado Rockies have traded right-hander Rob Scahill to the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league righty Shane Carle. The deal was announced Tuesday.
