Wehner is ready to go down to the field and yell at the Pirates to wait on some of this guy's junk. Out in front.....out in front....out in front. Then they stand there and take strile three. Good Lord! Why do the Pirates continuely make bad pitchers look good? I don't understand it.


I continue to blame Don Long. It's almost as if we either have no scouting or no common sense.

WOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO JONES!

Jones goes deep again! 10 Home Runs in July. Only Don Clendenon has done that for the Bucs back in the late 60's.

Keep it going Garrett!!!! I love it. :D

I watch via the MLB TV package. Tonight I have the AZ feed. They can't believe Jones, they said "where has he been?". They are in shock that he could be undiscovered for so long w/ that kind of power. It's true. It's just not normal to come up and be so good after so long in the minors.

If any team deserves a bit of luck it's the Pirates. Hopefully we finally found some lightning in a bottle with Jones. He sure looks good to me!

A late bloomer in full bloom! :)

Upton runs the D-Backs out of the inning by trying to take 2nd on a single w/ a runner at 3rd.

6-2 Bucs end of 5th. Good play by LaRoche and DY on the tag.

Great baseball website called Baseball-Reference.com.

It was 1966 for Donn (2 n's) Clendenon

I forgot that Montreal drafted him in the expansion draft in 1969.

Don't forget that there is still a week left in the month and the Pirates were off 4 days for the break.

Pretty amazing right now!

I'd get the hook. They are hitting Duke hard. I know it's a bit early......but......next run if they score......I would get the hook.

Agreed. He should be done for the night now that he got out of the 6th.

Btm of 7th 6-3 Bucs.

I think Duke will be pulled if anyone gets on. I hope we don't repeat last night's collapse. We need the win. One away right now.

Drew hits a double with 1 out and Chavez is coming in.

Let's go Jesse...

Yes except when they went to commercial it was Chavez but when we came back it was Hanrahan. Hanrahan is in and looking to walk the 1st batter. Instead he hits it deep to Jones. Two out runner on 2nd.

I am watching on MLB and it seemed Hanrahan was right around the plate that inning. Nice job!

It's our night. Salazar w/ a PH single drives in LaRoche from 3rd. 7-3 pirates in the 8th w/ no one out and runners on 1st and 2nd.

Lots of bad mistakes by the D-backs in this game. Although we played well enough to win this game, they kind of gave it away to us somewhat. But hey, we'll take it!

I agree but we should be better then them and I think we are. 9-3 Bucs in the 8th and Jones is up. AZ announcers are commenting on how Jones has bested Stargell, Giles, and others in his debut month w/ 9 HRs.

It's great!
