Pirates Back Above .500 After Win Over Red Sox

The Pirates took the first game of their three-game set against the Red Sox, 3-1. The Sox picked up a run in the first inning but did not score thereafter. Ronny Cedeno kick-started a rally in the bottom of the third by bunting his way on. Michael McKenry followed that with a double, Paul Maholm walked, Jose Tabata singled in a run, and Chase D'Arnaud's double play brought another one in. The Pirates added another run in the sixth on Lyle Overbay's RBI single. The Red Sox put a bunch of runners on base, but the Pirates got a lot of big outs to prevent them from scoring, particularly in the seventh and eighth innings. The Bucs moved to 38-37 with the win. It's pretty nice to see them grab one against the Red Sox here.

Also, via a team press release, the Bucs have reacquired Steven Jackson from the Reds for a player to be named. He'll just be minor-league depth this time - it will be a big shock if he makes it back to the majors with a team this good.
