Kinda like CBS Radio giving the score and only mentioning Bryant hit two home runs in the game.

Pirates employ Sunday lineup.
Cubs don't.
Get on base and run on Lester. All day.

Why is Gosselin playing? I don't even know why he is on the team.

Exactly. I don't get it. I would give Hanson the at bats.

Baffling. They have plenty of utility guys in JHay, Frazier, and Hanson...even Freese to an extent. Get someone on the roster that can hit.

If we just lost this game because the Cubs out hit us and out pitched us, I'd be able to handle it. But it becomes so frustrating when we hand them base runners. In the mean time, we have 3 outs on the bases.

Taillon with the bases loaded and two outs throws a 3-2 curve ball to Rizzo and enticed the third out.

Love this kid. Now, Jordy Mercer needs to go apologize.

JT with a heck of a start. 7 innings, only 1 bullcrap run.

His starts are becoming mandatory viewing. The kid can deal.

Bucs have 2nd and 3rd with nobody out to start the 8th... with Bell and Mercer due up.

Gotta score.

Way to slap a make-up hit, Jordy!
