Cubs 5, Pirates 2: Bullpen Breaks Down, But Duke Shines


Zach Duke pitched seven strong innings and left the game with the score tied at 2-2, but the normally reliable Jesse Chavez allowed a game-winning homer by Reed Johnson in the eighth. From there,...

Cubs 6, Pirates 1: Cubs Snap Losing Streak


Not-so-fun fact: the score of today's game (6-1) is the inversion of Ian Snell's record (1-6). Like a lot of starts he's had this year, Snell managed to get through several innings, but he allowed...

Pirates 10, Cubs 8: Sanchez Goes 6-for-6, Capps Hurt


Freddy Sanchez went 6-for-6 with a homer and a double in a rollercoaster win against the slumping Cubs on Monday, and Andy LaRoche and Jason Jaramillo both added three hits apiece. Matt Capps left...

Nationals 5, Pirates 4: Stammen Stops Streak


Well, not by himself, and he didn't even get the win, but the Bucs couldn't do anything against him through six. This is not, I suspect, a coincidence. Upon seeing that the Nationals were starting...

Pirates 2, Nationals 1: Bucs Win Fifth in a Row


The Pirates won their fifth straight game tonight in a squeaker against the Nationals, who still can't depend on their bullpen. It was a pitching duel between Paul Maholm and John Lannan, with...

Pirates 8, Nationals 5: Ugliest. Win. Ever.


Jeff Karstens narrowly outdueled fellow crafty starter Shairon Martis on Tuesday, but John Russell and the Pirates' slim-pickings bullpen combined to make this one much more of an adventure than it...

Pirates 5, Cardinals 2: Ohlendorf Dominates


Adam LaRoche lost a homer via instant replay this evening, but the Pirates otherwise had to be pretty happy with the results here. Ross Ohlendorf (will he turn out to be the most useful player on...

Mets 8, Pirates 4: Losing Streak Continues


The thing to remember at times like this is that we knew this wasn't a very good team going into the season. Bad teams have losing streaks, and we have to keep them in perspective before we gnash...

Mets 7, Pirates 2: Tyler Yates Dampens Evening


The Mets really seemed to want the Pirates to win this game (the box score only lists one error--a bad throw by Jose Reyes--but there were also a couple of bungled plays in the outfield), but a...

Cardinals 5, Pirates 2: Sunday Lineup = No Offense


Adam LaRoche and Freddy Sanchez took the day off today, and without the two of them or Ryan Doumit in the lineup (or, for that matter, Jack Wilson or Jason Jaramillo), the Pirates simply aren't...
