Post Game Update
16 hits, including 3 when the Pirates were down to their last out helped the Pirates get a win against the Chicago White Sox. Down 1, with 2 outs in the ninth, Jack Wilson hit a home run to tie the game. Nyjer Morgan followed with a double and Delwyn Young knocked him in to score the go-ahead run. Matt Capps finally showed some command, striking out the side in the bottom of the ninth. Hopefully Joe Kerrigan’s adjustments are starting to make a difference.

The Bucs made some bone-headed base-running mistakes, but I’ll take the win.

The Delwyn Young trade was completed today. Eric Krebs (a AA relief pitcher) was the player to be named later. The Pirates also sent $1 in cash to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

For the second consecutive game, the Pirates had no answer for White Sox pitchers. The Pirates got shut out for the second consecutive game.

Zach Duke (LHP) (5-3, 2.84 ERA, 32 K) @ Gavin Floyd (RHP) (2-4, 7.71 ERA, 35 K)

8:11 P.M. EST @ U.S. Cellular Field

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.

7:05 P.M. EST @ Nationals Park

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!
