I have posited that the Pirates burn through teams' bullpens more than any other team in baseball, since they run up pitch counts for the starting pitchers, play a ton of close games, play a lot of extra-inning games, and have a pen of their own which keeps games close.

I suspect that teams tend to burn out following 3 or more games against the Pirates, and struggle with pitching afterwards, but am too lazy to research this theory.
