They scored 6 runs the first game of the series, WITH Pedro getting screwed out of an RBI. This series loss is flat-out on the pitching. You cannot lose a 6 run game. Ever.

This loss was written before the game started. Gallardo (when he's on...which he was) simply dominates this Pirate team and others for that matter. Combine that with Cole giving up way too many hits resulting in way too many base runners are the glaring reasons why the Pirates lost this game.

Can this Pirate offense beat other pitchers down the road who are on their game and have dominated them in the past? The answer, IMHO, is no.

Also, the Pirates seem to have major problems with pitchers who have excellent control, throw in the mid to upper eighties and live on the edges of the plate. Of course, other teams also have problems with those type of pitchers.

The Pirates seem to match up better with pitchers who throw harder and who don't have as much movement on their pitches. It seems like an obvious statement, but it's one that I believe to be painfully true.

It also helped that the ump gave Gallardo an extra 6 inches off the inside of the plate.

I think it's significantly less of an issue than a team like the Cardinals or Reds who can't hit a certain style of pitcher regardless of how or what he throws (lefthanders).

Pitchers will dominate. Just how it goes.
