Post Game Update

An ugly 6th inning that included a Carlos Lee grand slam doomed the Pirates tonight.

The Bucs couldn’t get much offense going. They could only get 1 run on 6 hits.

The Pirates just can’t seem to win the games that would appear to be “easy” wins. After sweeping the Mets, we travel to Houston and get destroyed.
