Pirates 8, Brewers 3

That was a shockingly pleasant start to a crucial, essentially must-win series at the House of Horrors…especially after quickly falling behind 2-0 in the first inning. The Pirates rebounded, swung the bats, took advantage of Milwaukee mistakes, and managed to pitch (and defend) around eight walks. The Pirates entered this game six back of the Brewers, and with the win they are...

Game 127: Pirates 3 Braves 2

Once you’ve lost seven games in a row, you can’t win them all back at once. The only thing you can do on the eighth day is to ensure that you don’t lose an eighth game in a row. It’s a baby-step, for sure, but it’s a necessary baby step. I don’t know if the Pirates can dig out of the hole that they dug for themselves in this last week, but hey, this is one shovelful...

Marte Party

When you get a little cumin, coriander, curry, power and speed in the same dish, you got a Marte party! Whatever happened to that Next Food Network Star? She disappear with every other one, except Guy Fieri? As Anthony Bourdain aptly said, Fieri is the Poochie of the Food Network. Due to Fieri's success, they keep trying to sandwich (pardon the word) new personalities onto...

Braves 7, Pirates 3

I think there was a reasonable amount of hope that returning to PNC Park, playing a slightly less fearsome Braves team, and a somewhat favorable pitching matchup would spark the Pirates a little bit. A couple pitches in to the game, that hope was gone. Two thunderous Braves homers started things off, and then an even bigger implosion by Vance Worley (and the defense) essentially...

Pirates Injury Update: Starling Marte, Josh Harrison

The Pittsburgh Pirates fell to the Washington Nationals on Sunday in 11 innings by the score of 6-5. The loss dropped the Pirates to 64-60 on the season, third in the National League Central. The Pirates are still in good position to make a run at the post season with 38 games left, but need better performance from a staff that is 16th in the league in ERA. There was some minor...

Game 114: Pirates 7 Marlins 2

As much as I want Andrew McCutchen back in the lineup as soon as possible, seeing the Pirates’ secondary players combine together for easy wins and a lot of runs in two straight games is a really nice feeling of validation that the Pirates are a more complete organization and not just a team that’s good because it’s lucky enough to have Andrew McCutchen. That’s not to say...

Pirates Injury Update: Starling Marte activated

The Pittsburgh Pirates lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday by the score of 3-2. The loss dropped the Pirates to 59-52 on the season, third in the National League Central. At only a game and a half back in the division, the Pirates are well positioned to make a playoff run down the stretch. The team should get an additional boost to the offense, as Starling Marte has been...

Andrew McCutchen is probably headed to the disabled list. What’s next for the Pirates?

OK. OK. Deep breath. Andrew McCutchen is the best player on the Pittsburgh Pirates and the thought of the Pirates being without him for a month, particularly with their upcoming schedule against the contenders in the NL Central and NL East, is terrifying. It could be season-breaking, no doubt about it. Still, the Pirates are not a collection of 24 hobos-in-pajamas and one Andrew...

The Pirates face another lefty

At this point, seeing the Pirates line up against another left-handed pitcher makes me feel like I’m Superman and I’ve been in a room with Kryptonite for a week. With Starling Marte out, Brent Morel will start at third base again. Honestly, I have to keep checking to see if his name is Brett or Brent. I would have never imagined that he’d get two consecutive starts during a...

The evolving Pirate offense

The Pirates’ offensive turnaround this year has been a big topic of discussion lately. You likely know the basics. They’re fourth in the National League in runs scored despite playing in a pitcher-friendly park, their position players have a 110 OPS+, and their on-base percentage of .334 is the best in all of baseball. As you might expect, it’s awfully rare for a National League...

The second half climb continues

Last night was a nice win for the Pirates, in the way that it’s always nice when a good team finds a way to beat a bad team. The Pirates probably played closer to poor than they did to well, but Francisco Liriano pulled himself together after two rough innings and the Pirates’ offense strung some hits together against the Rockies’ bullpen, and the Pirates got a win. Liriano’s...

Tonight’s goal: do better

Look, I can’t spend much more time talking about the bullpen or the Pirates’ record against the non-Cubs teams in the NL Central. The bullpen needs to pitch better in close games that they don’t have a lead in, and the Pirates need to win games against the Cardinals, Cubs, and Reds. That’s it. Starling Marte is not with the team tonight, as he’s headed back to the Dominican...
