Other than the whole thirteen-innings-and-six-pitchers thing, this worked out shockingly well. Ty Taubenheim, Tyler Yates, T.J. Beam and John Van Benschoten pitched ten of those innings, struck out seven, and only allowed two runs. Taubenheim probably earned himself another start.
The trick, now, is for Tom Gorzelanny to stay glued together through five or innings tomorrow. If he can do that, the Pirates stand a decent chance of getting to their off-day on Thursday without the wheels completely coming off.
