In what should be the last trade prior to the deadline, the Pirates traded John Grabow and Tom Gorzelanny to the Chicago Cubs. In return, the Pirates have acquired right-handed pitchers Kevin Hart and Jose Ascanio and infielder Josh Harrison.

Just hours after Jack Wilson was shipped to Seattle, Freddy Sanchez was traded to the Giants.

In return, the Pirates received Tim Alderson, a right handed pitcher who was highly regarded within the Giants’ organization.

Word is now that Grabow and Gorzo could be dealt to the Cubs. 1 more day til the trade deadline.

Post Game Updates:
Given the trades that took place today, I did not expect the Pirates to play well in tonight’s game, but all in all, this was probably one of the best games the Pirates played all season.

Ross Ohlendorf was fantastic, striking out 8 and allowing just 4 hits in 7 innings. Grabow and Capps sealed the deal.

Freddy Sanchez went 3-3 with an RBI.

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

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.

The Stanley Cup is coming to PNC Park today, and Bill Guerin is throwing out the first pitch.

STANLEY CUP

Post Game Updates
Tonight’s game was interesting. It was old-school night at PNC Park. This year marks the 100 year anniversary of the Pirates defeating the Tigers in the World Series. Everything at PNC Park was imitated to make it look more like 1909. Baggy uniforms, no mascots, and a plain looking scoreboard made for a unique night at the park.

Ross Ohlendorf pitched 6 nice innings to get the win in today’s rubber match. Grabow and Capps pitched well to close out the 8th and 9th.

Andrew McCutchen went 2-3 with 2 runs. Freddy Sanchez went 2-4 with 2 runs. Delwyn Young went 3-4 with a run.

Zach Duke (LHP) (6-4, 2.62 ERA, 42 K) @ Kenshin Kawakami (RHP) (3-6, 4.63 ERA, 46 K)

7:00 P.M. EST @ Turner Field

Post Game Update

Zach Duke didn’t have a strong start tonight. He gave up 11 hits and 6 runs in 6 innings. Still the Pirates managed to score 2 runs in the 6th thanks to triples from Andrew McCutchen and Freddy Sanchez. Nyjer Morgan and Adam LaRoche each hit sacrifice flies to score McCutchen and Sanchez. Jaramillo, Wilson, Hinske, and McCutchen hit four consecutive hits in the 7th to score 3 runs and tie the game.

The Pirate bullpen pitched remarkably well in innings 7 through 14. Tom Gorzelanny, John Grabow, Sean Burnett, Steven Jackson, Jesse Chavez, and Evan Meek (3 innings!) all kept the Bucs in the game. Jeff Karstens entered for the bottom of the 15th inning, and he surrendered 2 walks and 2 hits, and Matt Diaz knocked in the winning run.

This was a tough loss for the Pirates tonight. Bobby Cox got his 2,000th win as a Braves manager. Nate McLouth hit a HR in his first game against the Pirates. Luckily, Andrew McCutchen is playing great, although is defense could use some work.

Since Karstens came into the game in relief tonight, we may see Charlie Morton enter the starting rotation soon.

Tonight’s game also brought up a minor bug in my scoresheet. I’ve known that there is currently a serious limitation in the scoresheet. Each team can only have 63 plate appearances. As I finished the scoresheet, I breathed a sigh of relief when the Pirates finished with 62 plate appearances and the Braves finished with 63. The minor bug occurred when a team had exactly 63 plate appearances. I’ll post an update shortly.

Paul Maholm (LHP) (3-2, 3.82 ERA, 38 K) @ Roy Oswalt (RHP) (2-2, 4.28 ERA, 55 K)

7:05 P.M. EST @ Minute Maid Park

Post Game Update

Roy Oswalt took to the mound for the Astros tonight. Again, it seems the better team or the better the pitcher the Pirates face, the better they can hit. The Pirates also finally provided some run support for Paul Maholm who got his 4th win of the season.

The Pirates scored all 6 of their runs in the 2nd and 3rd innings. Paul Maholm hit a single with the bases loaded in the 2nd to score Andy LaRoche. Andrew McCutchen followed with a 2 RBI single to score Brandon Moss and Jason Jaramillo. In the 3rd inning, the LaRoche brothers each singled, followed by a Brandon Moss double. Jaramillo hit an RBI ground out, and Jack Wilson followed with an RBI double.

John Grabow and Matt Capps looked good in the 8th and 9th, respectively. Hopefully their troubles are behind them, and we can count on them to close out games night-in and night-out.
