Stupid throw by Polanco gives the Brewers runners on second and third with no out in the first.

It looks like we can probably replace the curse of the Brewers with a new curse at this rate.

Solid game. I watched maybe half the game all together while doing chores, yardwork, etc. Locke did a great job ... hit his spots, no walks, basically gave the pen a night off.

Buccos with much better plate discipline. The 1st inning, Lohse kept nibbling with sliders in the dirt. Cutch laid off, drew a very big walk, and comes home to score when Marte smokes a single to left.

Marte's HR was another bomb. He is heating up ... the Pirates are getting some offense while Harrison, Mercer, and Walker are ice cold. When they heat up, the order will turn over time and again, and Cutch, Plinko, Alvarez, and Marte will get a lot of opportunities with RISP.

Yeah Lohse pitched fairly well but the Pirated did a good job with his stuff.

Harrison is having good at-bats and making his share of hard contact, so the results will come.

Bastardo became my favorite Pirate last night when he nailed him on the first pitch. Great. Stuff.

IA -
It was Caminero. And, according to Bob Walk, the pitch was 97 mph.

Yep. Caminero wasted no time - first pitch of the top of the 9th.

Knee high and running inside, towards Braun. Caminero knew exactly what he was doing. His stuff is just plain nasty.

When Caminero - who has had control issues in the past - hit Braun, I thought of Bouton's "Ball Four." Bouton talks about his time in the minor leagues where one of his teammates was ordered by the manager to hit a batter or pay a fine or something. However, the pitcher had terrible control. He succeeds in hitting the batter, and turns to the dugout, jumping up-and-down while shouting, "I hit him!! I did it, I hit him!!"
