UPDATE 1:17 PM: The Pirates grab a 1-0 thanks to some wildness from Zambrano, who walks two of the first four batters. Zambrano managed to get to a 1-2 count on Alvarez by getting swings and misses on two pitches outside, but then Zambrano tried it again and Pedro was ready, lacing a single to right.

UPDATE 1:44 PM: The top of the order strikes again. Tabata reaches base after Zambrano misses Tabata's hard grounder to his left, and then Walker brings him home with a double to the gap in right-center on a Zambrano changeup. After a walk to McCutchen, the Pirates had a chance to break things open, but a strikeout by Overbay and a GIDP by Alvarez end the rally. 2-0, Bucs.
