Let's keep it going, folks.

UPDATE 3:42 PM: The bottom of the fourth was ugly for the Pirates, but it could have been a lot worse. Ross Ohlendorf gave up consecutive singles to Darwin Barney, Marlon Byrd and Aramis Ramirez, and then there was an ugly at bat to Carlos Pena in which Ohlendorf threw about eight straight pitches way inside. Luckily, Pena swung at a couple of them, but then the count went full and Ohlendorf grooved one right down the middle. Pena caught hold of it and just missed a grand slam, but it was a tough play for Garrett Jones, made more difficult by the fact that a fan reached for the ball and dropped his beer, dousing Jones. It stopped there, however, as Ohlendorf got flyouts from Geovany Soto and Alfonso Soriano, then retired the pitcher Matt Garza. Still, Ohlendorf's command was really ugly that inning.

Jose Tabata starts the top of the fifth with a single, though, and a check-swing by Jones (maybe with beer in his eyes?) somehow winds up in the outfield, so the Pirates have two on with no outs in the fifth. 2-2.
