Post Game Update
Over the first 3 innings, Ian Snell provided a lot more of the same… bad pitching. The Bucs found themselves in a 5-0 hole after 3 frames.

He managed to get things together, and the Pirate bats came alive. An Andy LaRoche triple knocked in 2 runs, and LaRoche later scored to make the score 5-3.

The Pirates exploded again in the bottom of the 8th and scored 5 runs thanks to an Adam LaRoche double followed by four consecutive singles from Andy LaRoche, Jaramillo, Wilson, and Young.

Matt Capps entered for the 9th inning and shut things down. It turned out to be a nice 8-5 win for the black and gold.
