I didn't catch all of this one, but from what I saw, it appeared the Pirates had a ton of trouble with Carlos Carrasco, and they flailed at a lot of low pitches that fell off the table. Carrasco took a no-hitter into the sixth. Michael McKenry led off with an infield single off the glove of Orlando Cabrera. I only saw it once, but it looked to me like it could have been called an error. Jose Tabata had a more legitimate hit right after that, but even that one didn't leave the infield. Still, the Pirates managed just four hits against the Indians, all off Carrasco. They scored a run in the seventh on a double by Garrett Jones and a single by Lyle Overbay.
Paul Maholm gave up four runs, including a homer by Cabrera in the sixth.
... And, the Bucs are back at .500. It would be nice to see them take one Sunday so that they can head into their next interleague series with some momentum.
