Pirates' Comeback Bid Fails, Reds Win 11-8

It's pretty frustrating that the Pirates came from behind to tie this one but still lost. The Reds had a 7-4 lead in the middle of the seventh, but Brandon Wood had a two-run single in the bottom of the inning to make it 7-6, and after the Reds scored a run in the top of the eighth, the Pirates got to Nick Masset immediately, scoring on a double by Garrett Jones and a single by Andrew McCutchen

After that, though, the Bucs brought in Joel Hanrahan at the top of the ninth, as he should, and Hanrahan allowed a walk, and then a one-out single. Then there was an error-fest by Ryan Doumit, and a two-run single by Ryan Hanigan, and that was it - the Bucs went down in order against Francisco Cordero in the bottom of the inning, and the Pirates lost, 11-8.

Kevin Correia allowed three home runs in his start, continuing his Acela-speed trip to Replacementlevelville, but at least the Pirates got some offense, as six players had two hits each.
