Interleague play begins with tonight’s game against the Chicago White Sox.

Post Game Update
Yep… we suck at interleague play. At 63-101, the Pirates have the worst interleague record in Major League Baseball. The record only got worse tonight because the Pirates couldn’t figure out Gavin Floyd and only got 2 hits.

Zach Duke recorded an 8 inning complete game in the loss. Duke didn’t pitch bad, but he got no help. The White Sox first run came following a stolen base by Alexi Ramirez where replay later showed that Ramirez was out. Duke also surrendered a solo HR to Ramirez in the 8th.

This game was done in a speedy 1:51, and this game had just four plate appearances above the minimum.

Post Game Update
The Nationals finally found a way to hit Tom Gorzelanny, and they avoided a series sweep at the hands of the Pirates. The Pirate offense struggled, only producing 5 hits.

John Russell continues to make the interesting move of subbing out Andy LaRoche late in close games although the third-baseman’s hitting has greatly improved from the beginning of the season.

The Pirates travel to Chicago for series’ with the White Sox and Cubs.

Go Bucs!

Post Game Update
The Pirates won their 3rd consecutive game against the Washington Nationals. The Bucs took the lead on a bases loaded wild pitch in the ninth.

Matt Capps came in and collected the save, though he nearly gave up a walk-off home run to Josh Willingham.

In other news, the Pirates have apparently been so successful in the city of Washington that they were invited to the White House today. Manager John Russell declined his visit saying that he’ll wait for a World Series ring.

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.

Tonight’s game kicks off a 4 game series in Washington. Hopefully, the Pirates can take advantage of one of the weakest teams in baseball.

Post Game Update
The Washingtion Nationals are bad. Four errors and a disastrous outing by the Nationals’ bullpen helped the Bucs get the win tonight.

Jack Wilson went 4-4 and just a HR short of the cycle.

I’m going on vacation to Ireland for a week, so I’m going to be out-of-touch from the Pirates until Memorial Day.

I think all of the games against the Rockies and Nationals should be winnable, but the weekend in Chicago will be tough.

I scheduled live update posts for each day while I’m away, so there will still be some activity on the blog even though I’ll be far away from it.

Until next week… Go Bucs!

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.

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.

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.

I’ve done additional work on my Retrosheet Scoresheet project, and I am now releasing Version 2a.

Key Improvements:
– Substitutes are now entered at a logical position on the scoresheet. For instance, if Ramon Vazquez replaces Jack Wilson in the 8th spot in the batting order, Vazquez is placed just below Jack Wilson on the scoresheet.
– If a player changes positions during a game, the second Pos/Inn columns are used.
– If both sets of Pos/Inn columns are used and there is a short bat surrounding one of those substitutions, the BA column now shows: “A”, “B”, “XA”, “XB”, “AA”, “AB”, “BA”, or “BB” depending on whether each substitution was “B”efore the short bat, “A”fter the short bat, or “X” not related to the short bat.

This closes out Version 2 of my Retrosheet Scoresheet Project.

I will now begin working on Version 3 which focuses on the incorporation of pitch data.

Enjoy!
