The trading of Bucco starters has continued. We expected Adam LaRoche to be dealt sometime this season. A deal was made with the Boston Red Sox.

The Pirates acquired shortstop Argenis Diaz and right-handed pitcher Hunter Strickland.

Post Game Updates
Technically, the Pirates were going for a 4 game sweep against the New York Mets today (make up game). It was back and forth all day, and the Pirates lost a heartbreaker. After leading 5-0 after 3 innings, the Bucs allowed the Mets back into the game, and the Mets led 8-5 after 6. Down 8-6 in the bottom of the ninth, Freddy Sanchez singled and Adam LaRoche homered to the game as the PNC Park crowd exploded. With 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth, Robinzon Diaz and Ramon Vazquez singled, but Brandon Moss couldn’t knock in the game winner.

Matt Capps entered in the top of the 10th, and allowed a 2-out hit-by-pitch, stolen base, and single to give up the lead.

The Pirates’ top of the order couldn’t produce anything in the bottom of the 10th.

Today was the first time we’ve seen Jeff Salazar in a Pirates’ uniform. He was recalled after the Morgan/Hinske trades. He entered as a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the 6th, and he flew out to right.

Paul Maholm pitched well, allowing just 2 runs in 7 innings. He got some nice run support from Pirate hitters, with Nyjer Morgan, Freddy Sanchez, Adam LaRoche, Delwyn Young, and Jack Wilson each recording 2 hits, and combining to knock in 6 runs.

The win marks 4 in a row (all against the American League too!).

After losing 5 games in a row, the Pirates finally scored a win against the Cleveland Indians.

The Bucs got 11 hits and 8 runs (just 3 earned) against Carl Pavano in 3.2 innings.

Every Pirate starter scored a hit, and Adam LaRoche went 3-4 with 2 runs and 3 RBI.

Zach Duke pitched well through 6, and Chavez and Grabow were fine in the 7th and 8th.

The ninth inning was a disaster, as the Indians scored 5 runs, but a win is a win.

Yesterday, the Pirates lost 8-2 to the Twins. Tonight, they won 8-2.

Andy and Adam LaRoche each homered, becoming the first Pirate brothers to homer in the same game since 1938.

Snell pitched well, and he was good enough to get the win, going 6 innings and giving up 2 runs. John Grabow and Steven Jackson preserved the Bucco lead.

Rubber match against the Twins tomorrow.

The final game of this series, in which every game has been decided by 1 run, starts today at 1:00.

Go Bucs!

Post Game Update

Paul Maholm and Javier Vazquez were locked in a pitchers’ duel. The two combined for 21 strikeouts.

Delwyn Young hit his first home run as a Pirate to tie the game at 1. Young’s homered finally ended the Pirates’ homerless streak of 323 plate appearances.

After having a tough day, Andrew McCutchen came up big in the 9th by hitting a leadoff single. Nyjer Morgan sacrificed him to 2nd. Freddy Sanchez grounded out to move him to 3rd. Bobby Cox then made the surprising move of intentionally walking Adam LaRoche to pitch to hotter-hitting brother Andy. Andy poked a single up the middle to score McCutchen and brother Adam to take the lead.

Big Bull Rider Matt Capps shut things down in the 9th.

It feels good to leave Atlanta with a split.

The Pirates dropped their second 1-run game in a row to the Atlanta Braves. Ross Ohlendorf pitched well, but it wasn’t enough for the Pirates to get the W.

The Pirates scored early in the 1st inning when speedy Nyjer Morgan singled. Delwyn Young hit him over to 3rd, and Morgan scored on an Adam LaRoche groundout.

The Braves put some singles together in the bottom of the 3rd to score Nate McLouth and tie the game at 1.

Delwyn Young singled in the 4th, Eric Hinske walked, and Robinzon Diaz doubled to send them both home. 3-1 Bucs!

The lead lasted until the bottom of the 7th when Jesse Chavez gave up a 2 run single to Yunel Escobar.

This was the 2nd tough loss in a row for the Bucs.
