Game 18: Brewers 8 Pirates 7

I don’t want to put too much stock into any individual April baseball game, but this is a pretty tough loss to swallow. The Pirates went into the seventh inning with a two-run lead despite Wandy Rodriguez spending four innings throwing floating meatballs to Brewer hitters, and then the Pirates’ best relievers served up two home runs to Ryan Braun in the final three innings to...

Despite mistakes, Brewers edge Pirates

When you play a game as strange — and ugly — as the Milwaukee Brewers did on Friday night, it's not often that you come out on top. Yet, that was exactly what happened for the Brewers, who somehow overcame four errors in the field and a couple more on the base paths to outlast the Pittsburgh Pirates, 5-3, in front of 31,564 frustrated fans. Throw in Martin Maldonado literally...

Brewers claim 'weird' contest

Ron Roenicke chose the word goofy, but there were many adjectives the Brewers skipper could have used to describe Friday night's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Sloppy, ugly, whatever. It didn't matter in the end. Milwaukee overcame four errors in the field and a couple of blunders on the bases to come away with a 5-3 win over Pittsburgh, evening the four-game weekend...

Rubber game for Reds and Pirates

Judging by the first two games of this series, it may be difficult to believe that the Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates have had trouble providing run support for their top starters. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh look to change that Wednesday at Great American Ball Park as Johnny Cueto and Francisco Liriano square off for the first time since October's NL wild-card game. The...

The Tuesday Split

The Pirates got a quick victory late Tuesday afternoon, but let a chance to wrap up a series win slip away in the nightcap as the Reds bounced back with a win. The two teams will meet for the third time in less than 24 hours at 12:35 — a rematch of the Wild Card Game, Francisco Liriano against Johnny Cueto. The completion of Monday’s crazy game was pretty uneventful. Andrew McCutchen...

Pirates quietly finish off Reds 8-7 in suspended game

CINCINNATI -- After a wild Monday night, the Reds and Pirates quietly finished off their suspended game in dryer, colder conditions Tuesday at Great American Ball Park. It did nothing to change Cincinnati's fortunes as Pittsburgh won the first game of the three-game series 8-7. The Reds, now 4-9, have now dropped the first game of all five series they have played so far this...

Martin put Bucs over the edge

Catcher Russell Martin has been a tremendous addition for the Pirates. Martin's arrival coincided with the Pirates' starting rotation lowering its earned run average from 4.21 to 3.50, 4th best in the NL. The 31-year-old Martin is batting .257 with two home runs and six RBI, while continuing his strong play defensively. PiratesDugout.com's George Von Benko caught up with...

Pirates give up early lead but outlast Cubs, 7-6

Russell Martin’s eighth inning sacrifice fly scored Starling Marte to lift the Pirates to a 7-6 win Tuesday night against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Cubs relievers Pedro Strop and James Russell loaded the bases with three walks in the eighth, setting the scene for Martin. It was almost the Emilio Bonifacio show, as the Cubs leadoff hitter wreaked more havoc against the Pirates...

Game 7: Pirates 7 Cubs 6

The Pirates had to overcome a lot of unusual stuff to sneak out a win from the Cubs tonight. After the Pirates took a 4-0 lead against a really ineffective Edwin Jackson in the first inning, the Cubs fought back to tie the game on a three-run homer by Starlin Castro. Morton had only allowed one regular season home run since the end of last July and he’s generally hard to right...

Game 4: Pirates 12 Cardinals 2

There was a brief moment in time when the outcome of this game was in question. Gerrit Cole cruised through the Cardinals’ lineup the first time he faced them on the strength of his fastball, but it took a while for his other pitches to click. He ran into some trouble in the fourth inning, then gave up a two-run homer to Matt Carpenter in the fifth to make it at 3-2 game. It suddenly...

Russell Martin Opening Day 8x10 Auto.

I absolutely love collecting cardboard depicting former Dodger backstop Russell Martin. While my card collection of him is quite vast, I've never had the pleasure of meeting him to get non-card items signed or gone after any pieces of memorabilia online. That recently changed as I stumbled across the beautiful signed 8x10 below, which was had for roughly half a blaster. As with...

Another Yankees’ catcher may soon find himself packing his bags for a move to Pittsburgh. According to a report from Ken Davidoff of the New York Post, the two teams match-up well for a possible deal. Two former Yankees catchers, Russell Martin and Chris Stewart, are now donning the Pirates’ gold and black uniform. Martin left New York for Pittsburgh via free agency after the...

Martin: Replacing me with McCann was ‘expensive mistake’

The Yankees’ offseason spending spree caught the attention of just about everyone in baseball — including Russell Martin. The catcher was among the first casualties of ownership’s desire to avoid paying the luxury tax this season and keep the 2014 payroll under $189 million. That led to the Yankees being in the unusual situation of being outbid by the Pirates. After landing...

Pirates catcher Chris Stewart needs knee surgery

The Pirates acquired Chris Stewart from the Yankees to serve as Russell Martin‘s backup, but now the 31-year-old catcher is likely headed for surgery after injuring his knee in a game last week. Stewart didn’t figure to play much for the Pirates considering he’s a career .214 hitter and Martin started 117 games last year. In his place 25-year-old former first-round draft pick...
