Paul Maholm (LHP) (4-3, 4.23 ERA, 54 K) @ Jorge De La Rosa (LHP) (2-7, 5.81 ERA, 76 K)

3:10 P.M. EST @ Coors Field

Post Game Updates
On Fathers’ Day, the Colorado Rockies finished their 3 game sweep against the Bucs.

Paul Maholm got off to a rough start, giving up 5 runs in 5 innings. Jeff Karstens and Steven Jackson finshed the game well, but the Pirate bats couldn’t quite generate the necessary run support.

McCutchen went 2-5 with 2 runs and Sanchez went 2-4 with a run and 3 RBI, but the Pirates still dropped the series finale 5-4.

Charlie Morton (RHP) (0-0, 0.00 ERA, 0 K) @ Jason Hammel (RHP) (4-3, 4.10 ERA, 42 K)

8:10 P.M. EST @ Coors Field

Craig Monroe was designated for assignment, and Steven Pearce was recalled from AAA-Indianapolis. Charlie Morton gives his “1st” start for the Pirates a 2nd chance. He takes the mound against Jason Hammel, tonight at 8:10 at Coors Field.

Post Game Updates
Tonight’s loss to the Rockies is very very frustrating.

Down 4-2 after 6 innings, the Pirates got a 4 runs 7th, and they added a run in the 8th to take a 7-4 lead.

The bullpen couldn’t hold it, and the Rockies scored 3 in the 8th and 2 in the 9th to finish a 9-7 victory.

Charlie Morton did his job, holding the Rockies to 2 runs after 5. Sean Burnett didn’t pitch well in the 6th, but Pirate batters bailed him out in the 7th. John Grabow was a disaster in the 8th, and Jesse Chavez was no better in the 9th.

Nyjer Morgan was 4-5 with a run and an RBI. McCutchen was 1-5 with a run and 3 RBI. Brandon Moss went 3-4.

9:10 P.M. EST @ Coors Field

Post Game Update
The Pirates opened their 3 game series in Colorado tonight. The Rockies are hot under the direction of their new manager Jim Tracy (yes, we all remember him).

The Pirates’ offense was wimpy, but Jack Wilson hit a solo HR in the 7th. Eric Hinske and Andrew McCutchen knocked in two after-the-fact runs in the top of the 9th.

Ross Ohlendorf wasn’t sharp, surrendering 6 runs on 9 hits in 5 innings. Burnett and Meek pitched well. Matt Capps got an inning of work in the 8th, and he gave up a hit and a run.

Post Game Update
Prior to this game, Tyler Yates was placed on the DL. Tom Gorzelanny was recalled. Nobody is quite sure yet how Gorzo will be used. The bullpen has been struggling more than the starters, so it’s possible that we may see him in relief.

A big seventh inning gave helped the Pirates earn an 11-4 win and a series win over the Colorado Rockies.

Aaron Cook (RHP) (2-1, 5.03 ERA, 21 K) @ Ian Snell (RHP) (1-5, 4.50 ERA, 27 K)

7:05 P.M. EST @ PNC Park

Nyjer Morgan sat tonight’s game out because of a sore hamstring. It doesn’t sound like any major problem.

The Pirates put 4 singles and a walk together in the bottom half of the 2nd inning to score 4 runs. Bullpens were a big part of this game because rain started to fall in the bottom half of the 2nd inning, and there was a 1:37 delay.

Apparently, Joe Kerrigan has found a mechanical flaw in Matt Capps’s delivery. He allowed a walk in the 9th, but he still walked away with the save.

Jorge De La Rosa (LHP) (0-3, 3.53 ERA, 35 K) @ Paul Maholm (LHP) (3-1, 4.06 ERA, 21 K)

7:05 P.M. EST @ PNC Park

The Rockies come to Pittsburgh for a 3 game series with the Bucs.

Post Game Update:
This game stung in every sense of the word. The Pirates are still struggling to put runs on the board, but thanks to a great start by Paul Maholm, an OK relief effort from Tyler Yates, and a good relief effort from John Grabow, the Bucs were in position to win until Matt Capps took the mound in the top of the ninth.

The only run up to that point came from a Nate McLouth single and stolen base, followed by a Craig Monroe RBI single.

In the top of the ninth, with struggling Capps at the mound, the Rockies went: Ground Rule Double, Home Run, Single, Ground Out, Fly Out, Single, Stolen Base, Single.

In the bottom of the ninth, the Bucs mysteriously pinch hit Ramon Vazquez for Andy LaRoche. Regardless, Huston Street struck out the side to collect the save that Matt Capps left on the mound.

Sigh.

Retrosheet’s bevent program takes a Retrosheet event file and creates a complete description of every at-bat that occurred during the game.  To complete the introduction of Retrosheet’s three pieces of software, I’ll once again start with the event file for the Colorado Rockies @ Los Angeles Dodgers game on 4/9/2007 as an example. Here is the event file.

Here is a step-by-step guide for using bevent.exe.

  1. Download bevent.exe from Retrosheet or here, and unzip the executable file.
  2. Put the event file (or a text file that includes many event files) in the same directory as the bevent.exe program.
  3. You also need to have a team file included in the same directory.  A team file is text file that lists every team, their league, and their three-letter abbreviation.  The team file must have a filename of TEAMYYYY.  For example, here is TEAM2007.
  4. Open the Windows Command Prompt. (Start -> Run -> CMD)
  5. Navigate to the directory where you stored bevent.exe, the event file, and the team file.
  6. Type the command: bevent -y 2007 -f 0-96 dodgers_rockies040907.evn (or the name of your event file).  “-y 2007” specifies the year of the game.  If you are generating game info for a game from 1960, make sure you use -y 1960. “-f 0-96” specifies which fields I want bevent to return.  The default is 0-6, 8-9, 12-13, 16-17, 26-40, 43-45 ,51, 58-61.  0-96 means all fields.
  7. If you want to output the game info to a text file (I’d recommend saving as a .csv file so it opens nicely in spreadsheet software), use the command bevent -y 2007 -f 0-96 dodgers_rockies040907.evn > dodgers_rockies_040907_gameinfo.csv.

Retrosheet’s bgame program takes a Retrosheet event file and creates a game summary. Again, I’ll use the Colorado Rockies @ Los Angeles Dodgers game on 4/9/2007 as an example. Here is the event file.  Here is a step-by-step guide for using bgame.exe.

  1. Download bgame.exe from Retrosheet or here, and unzip the executable file.

  3. You also need to have a team file included in the same directory.  A team file is text file that lists every team, their league, and their three-letter abbreviation.  The team file must have a filename of TEAMYYYY.  For example, here is TEAM2007.
  4. Open the Windows Command Prompt.
  5. Navigate to the directory where you stored bgame.exe, the event file, and the team file.
  6. Type the command: bgame -y 2007 dodgers_rockies040907.evn (or the name of your event file).  -y 2007 specifies the year of the game.  If you are generating game info for a game from 1960, make sure you use -y 1960.
  7. If you want to output the game info to a text file, use the command bgame -y 2007 dodgers_rockies040907.evn > dodgers_rockies_040907_gameinfo.txt.

Here is the output from bgame.exe.

Retrosheet has developed three (Windows-only) programs that work with their play-by-play event files.  An event file is essentially a text-based representation of an entire baseball game.  Retrosheet offers event files for nearly every MLB game played since 1953.  For example, here is the event file from Colorado Rockies @ Los Angeles Dodgers game on 4/9/2007.

The first program that I’ll outline is box.exe.  Box.exe creates a box score from the Retrosheet event file.  Here’s how you can use box.exe.

  1. Download box.exe from Retrosheet or here, and unzip the executable file.
  2. Put the event file (or a text file that includes many event files) in the same directory as the box.exe program.
  3. You also need to have a team file included in the same directory.  A team file is text file that lists every team, their league, and their three-letter abbreviation.  The team file must have a filename of TEAMYYYY.  For example, team2007.
  4. Open the Windows Command Prompt.
  5. Navigate to the directory where you stored box.exe, the event file, and the team file.
  6. Type the command: box -y 2007 dodgers_rockies040907.evn (or the name of your event file).  -y 2007 specifies the year of the game.  If you are generating a box score for a game from 1960, make sure you use -y 1960.
  7. If you want to output the box score to a text file, use the command box -y 2007 dodgers_rockies040907.evn > dodgers_rockies_040907_boxscore.txt.

Here is the output from box.exe.
