I like Gomez and Doug M in the line-up. LaRoche back in the 4th spot, hopefully if we get some runners on (which considering we couldn't hit off of Parra last night and have Sheets tonight, not sure what to think) he doesn't react like last night.

Didn't realize until I just read that Snell hasn't had a win since the Reds series. Yikes.

X-Man woo hoo. Another multiple hit game and he hits one into the Brew's dugout. It has been a while since he belted one. 1-1

RBI Triple hit by Braun rolled all the way to the notch at the 410 sign in the OF

Which of course results in a triple and we're down again.

Good God, this is painful. Just painful. I nearly turned it off after the Brewers got the 2-out hit after hanging in there for the HR, but I figured what the hell, we have actually been hitting tonight, better catch this inning.

LaRoche leads off with a single. We hit into a DP. Doug M singles. Ground-out.

I am done with this game. I just can't bear it anymore. And from the way this thread is moving like molasses, it sounds like I'm not the only one, rightfully so.

11 hits, evenly distributed, and we can't manufacture a single run.

[PUT IN DATE HERE]

The Pirates offense struggled [today/tonight] against [NAME OF STARTER HERE], and managed to score just [ ] runs. The game featured several opportunities for the Pirate offense to log a big hit and close the gap, but [NAME OF PLAYER HERE. DEFAULT NAME = ADAM LAROCHE] could not deliver when needed as he left [ ] runners on base. As a result, the offense could not put together a multiple-run inning.

The game also featured a spotty starting effort by [NAME OF PIRATE STARTER HERE], who labored through [ ] innings while throwing [ ] pitches.

The Pirates hope to break the [ ] game losing streak tomorrow against [NAME OF OPPOSING STARTER], who sports an ugly [ ] record and [ ] ERA. However, [NAME OF CRAPPY STARTER] has had success against the Pirates in the past, including this year.

Has anyone else noticed that McLouth has cooled off lately? May isn't over and already he has lost 101 points off his batting average and 214 points off his OPS since the last game of last month.

Yeah, but he wasn't going to be hitting as miraculously as his amazing start forever. No one will. But he's still hitting regularly. He had a double tonight (that of course got wasted), went 3-5 in one game against the Cubs (including a game-winning HR in the 9th), drew 3 walks in another game against the Cubs, and had a hit in both games of the St. Louis series.

McLouth is the least of or worries.

Seeing who the author of the post is, I have now realised that I may have missed some irony. :oops:
