All good things must end, I suppose, like little winning streaks, and series with the Astros. Charlie Morton shut down the Astros through five and the Bucs built an early lead, but Morton ran into all kinds of problems in the sixth, and ended up allowing five runs. He ended up with six strikeouts and one walk on the night, but took the loss after leaving with 5.1 innings. The Pirates got the tying run to the plate in the fifth after Lyle Overbay and Michael McKenry singled, but Bud Norris got Xavier Paul and Alex Presley to end the threat.
UPDATE 10:36 PM: I'm on David Todd's postgame show right now.
