16 consecutive losses to one team? We need to get this monkey off of our back and beat the Brewers. Another glimpse of .500 wouldn’t be bad either.

Jeff Suppan (1-2, 5.88) @ Ian Snell (1-3, 3.72), 7:05 P.M. @ PNC Park

Post-Game Update:

It’s official. We’ve lost to the Brewers 17 consecutive times. They own us. At least we don’t have to see them again until July 20.

Freddy Sanchez got the Pirates started early with a home run in the 1st inning, but it wasn’t enough. Ian Snell didn’t pitch great (probably because he threw 131 pitches in his last outing), but he still managed to leave in the 6th inning with a 3-2 lead (he did walk the first 2 batters in the 6th). Jesse Chavez came into the game in relief, and things got bad. Chavez allowed 3 runs to score, before Sean Burnett came in and closed out the inning. Pirate pitchers gave up 10 walks in the game.

Delwyn Young hit a 2 RBI double in the 8th, but even that wasn’t enough, and the Brewers beat the Bucs 8-5.

You have to wonder if the Pirates will see .500 again this season.
