Pirates Lose to Cubs, May Never Win a Game Again

Kevin Hart struggled with his control in an 8-5 loss to the Cubs today that dropped the Pirates to 54-84. Six weeks or so ago I dismissed the idea that the Pirates might lose 100 games, but now it's looking increasingly possible. The Bucs would have to win nine of their remaining 24 games to avoid it. Luckily, four of those remaining games are against the Padres, and six are against the Reds. If there's any other silver lining here, it's that the Pirates aren't getting blown out; they rarely have a game where they don't either score a reasonable number or allow a reasonable number. They could be winning. But they aren't.
