Post Game Update
In trade news, the Pirates claimed Steven Jackson off of waivers from the New York Yankees.

Nyjer Morgan was back in the lineup for tonights game. He led things off with a single and scored on Freddy Sanchez’s double in the 1st.

Andy LaRoche homered in the 3rd inning, but then the Pirates got no base runners until the 9th inning. Some clutch hitting in the 10th by Adam LaRoche and Brandon Moss helped the Pirates walk away with another victory from the Nationals.

The Pirates had two opportunities to use Matt Capps in a save situation (9th and 10th innings), but declined on both chances.
